Ark State kicked their butt. Actually the defense didn't play all that bad. Offense was a nightmare. 5'10" QB is a problem in college. It's hard to convert 3rd & 12 all the time.

Take trap as an example. We would work our version of Trap every week. Yet, in our league there was maybe one team we could run it against or needed it. However, I knew once we got to the Regional's or beyond it was an important play to have. Same with counter, you need it to stop Defenses from over flowing to the ball.

Because trap is not effective against crappy teams. You actually need a strong dt to run it against. Few teams have the players or the smarts to put a high quality player at dt. Most leagues don't have more than one or two quality teams.

As Rob has said, trap against bad teams just doesn't work. In league play there was 1 or 2 teams a year that trap was really good against. When we got to the Nationals most teams were better coached so trap was an important play.

Ask the Wing T guys here & they will tell you the same thing.
