Baylor Passing Game
« on: December 05, 2014, 03:51:14 PM »
Does anyone have any information on their passing game?  I have been trying to study some of the stuff they do, and one of the things that makes them successful is the wide splits by the slots.  But with the width of the slots haven't seen them run any crossing routes, just skinny post and goes for the most part.  Is that all too it?  The other thing does anyone know the rules on the linemen going down field on pass plays?  Their linemen run block on a lot of playaction.  For instance if I am using GOL and my guys in not covered so he would go to LB, but that would be considered illegal man down field.  Do they just have them big on big the front and don't have them go to backers? and if so what if the backer comes up?

they do pull a guard if they get the QB out of the pocket

Lots of vertical stems and pick style routes like switch. They also have a curl type concept that is off of a switch release. The deal with the wide WR splits is it turns everything into man. If you stretch a zone it becomes man. This goes back to what Jenkins was doing with the run and shoot. It's really hard to play your conventional zones.

It's not just their slots that are wide but also their SE. Those guys are typically at the bottom of the numbers. Due to the large WR splits they don't need crossing routes.

I have recorded a few of their games.  Against Kansas State, their main concept was the stick concept married with a running play.  That game they mainly just ran an iso, pulling the tackle to lead like a fullback.  Petty (the qb) would read the line backer responsible for covering the stick.  If the backer dropped to cover, he would hand the ball off.  If the backer attacked the line of scrimmage (which was mostly the case) he pulled the ball and hit the stick route.
I have seen teams, like West Virginia and Oklahoma State, run the stick/draw.  They would read the stick, then hand off.  Baylor is doing to the same, just a different order.
As far as the other concepts, I do not see anything else that nobody else does.  They will go deep often if they have single coverage.
I think their tempo and physicality is what makes them so good.  Impressive play-action game from the shotgun.
They do not run a lot of different plays, it is the same stuff, over and over at warp speed.
