The FishDuck Minute #6: PAC 12 Spread Analysis – Inside Run

If the PAC 12 wasn’t the most interesting conference in the country already, it is now. Offseason acquisitions and retooling left the PAC 12 with 4 of the nation’s most respected offensive gurus out there: Chip Kelly at Oregon, Noel Mazzone at UCLA, Mike Leach at WSU, and Rich Rodriguez at Arizona. All four coaches are distinctly different, attacking different parts of the defense with different looks and concepts, but all of them accomplish remarkably similar tasks.

In a multiple part analysis, we’ll cover some of the main concepts of each offense. First, we’ll start with the Inside Run Game:

“Oh how we love to learn about our beloved Ducks.”

    :25 is Outside Zone. HB is aiming toward the TE, no J-step, and the o-line is looking to secure the edge.
