The sad thing here is that I'll bet the defensive players figured they'd get flagged for unnecessary roughness if they slammed the QB as he crossed the line of scrimmage, even with a totally clean hit, given all the rules protecting the QB these days.

There's a lot of room for creativity within the rules of football. Yet people all play a particular, conservative way, and everyone seems to think that that's the one way you play football and so never play around within the boundaries.

Almost no one designs plays based on the ability to make legal backward laterals other than the QB option some college's employ. Or doing anything OTHER than lining up a center with two lineman directly on either side of him.

I wish someone would do the run and shoot again... very potent offense that is almost impossible to stop...


As for the other plays with laterals.... the more you toss the ball around, the more chance of a fumble... so you have to design the play in such a way that the rewards are worth the risks... one that is used, but not that often is the hook and ladder....

Maybe Mack Brown will hire Mike Leach as his new offensive coordinator...

I'm partial to this game which had a few trick plays at the end:



If you have a few minutes, you could also watch:



The proposal at the end is from Ian Johnson to his girlfriend and BSU cheerleader. I have heard that they actually met before realizing that he was on the team and she was on the squad. She said yes and they got married in Boise later that year.

Another interesting thing about that game is that Lyle Smith, the first football coach at BSU back in the 1940's actually attended the game and saw the win. The famous blue turf is on Lyle Smith field.
