Thread: Option Offense

  1. #321

    Default Re: Option Offense

    I was in grad school during Sewaks tenure, and I got to meet Rusty after he was dismissed. He briefly worked in the Kinesiology department where I did my grad assistantship, and he seemed like a super nice guy. Me and all the other students loved talking to him, because like his dad, he could tell a great story and had a good insight for most any occasion.

    He was a very good coach for us. I don't know what happened when he took the DC job at Bethune-Cookman, but he'd clearly had his fill of the coaching profession shortly thereafter.

    I wish things had gone differently.

    I think we should have gone FBS during the PJ era.

    No telling where we would be now.

    The Academies are at a disadvantage at recruiting and yet they win!

    Not because they serve and you know what is different. With us and the three academies one school is not anything like the other three.

    No, but we also have to recruit JUST the minimum requirement on the freshman index or whatever they call it in this case.

    The service academies have relaxed admission standards, but they still have to cut the mustard as cadets and midshipmen.

    We should be able recruit better talent than they do. Whether we can develop it as efficiently as they do is a different question altogether.

    The eyeball test told me that we were a lot faster than the service academies during the PJ and Sewak years. I’m not sure if that’s still true.

    We appear to have been beaten head-to-head in recruiting by Army a couple of times recently.

    You know you cant do that running the Pistol or Flex option!

    Ooops maybe I'm wrong!
    GSU Spread Option FOOTBALL - out weighed, but never outplayed
    The T-Option is the powerful ground game ever devised & the FLEX is the best way to run it.
    If I want your opinion & don't like it I'll tell you what it should be.

    And in 1994 we were in the same boat we are now with a 1 dimensional offensive scheme. We lost to a division 2 football team because our offensive coordinator, Coach Mike Hodges, did not put enough emphasis on how important it was to be able to execute a pass game against teams that brought everybody up to stop the run. Coach Stowers was ultimately responsible for what his OC had been doing and he ended up paying the price later on. We lost games in that era because our pass game wasn't sharp enough to win games against good defensive units.

    When Coach Paul Johnson took over in 1997 things changed.
