View Full Version : Question about the Lobo offense...
09-05-2007, 11:38 AM
from an out-of-towner whose only source of info is pretty much, well, you guys :D
There's been a lot of talk about the 'Bo O on here after the last game.
Has the O coordinator talked specifically about his philosophy or what kind of offense he's running?
I'm not talking about the usual coach speak, but has he or anyone else actually outlined the package they're running.
I have a couple of thoughts but don't want to jump the gun.

General terms, he has spoken of the offense, as has Rocky. Before the UTEP game Rocky was saying we need to spread things out. I had heard Baldwin talking at one point, and he too likes to keep the defense guessing. He said he likes to spread things out and open things up. He also said we must be able to run the ball to set up the pass.
What we actually saw against UTEP, imho, was more west coast in the beginning. Trying to turn short passing plays in bigger gains. When this was not real successful, we reverted to the smash mouth football of the past. To be fair, we did move the ball, but just could not score. Also, I thought DP struggled with his accuracy. Hopefully, the whole system will improve. This weekend would be a good time for it to start! :-)
Hope that answers your question a little. I think Baldwin can turn this into a good offense this year.

So, they said they want to go with a spread but ended up running a lot of power sets?
BTW, thanks it does answer some questions. And I agree that experience helps quite a bit, but there are also things you can do to make the transition easier for guys.
