Power on the Edge: Buck Sweep in the Willie Taggart Offense

Coach Eric Boles Analysis 6 Comments

With it being a bye week for the Oregon Ducks, I have decided to go back a couple weeks and take a look at a play Oregon used against the Utah Utes. The play is Buck Sweep, often referenced by Mr. FishDuck on the site as the Sweep Read. This is a play Gus Malzahn has famously run at Auburn; former Duck …

Even on the weeks the Ducks have a bye, college football Saturdays are great. Midseason may have a large number of teams on their bye week, and many highly-ranked teams delivered blowouts Saturday, but that doesn’t mean Saturday wasn’t filled with plenty of sneaky good games. It started with a pair of quadruple-overtime games in the first two blocks of …

Noah Smith FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

Let me give you a fair warning here, I am from New Orleans, Louisiana; I live outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Outside of Oregon, the LSU Tigers are my favorite college team. I give you that qualifying statement so you’ll understand when I say that I believe the SEC is the strongest conference, top down, in college football. Part of …

College Football Nation: Hot Seats and FSU’s Drastic Unie Change

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

This is shaping up to be the summer of the hurry up offense and the attack it has come under.  I am okay with coaches arguing over the possible rule change all summer and taking jabs at each other.  Imagine how much bigger the Iron Bowl will be if Alabama’s Nick Saban and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn have all summer to speak …
