I heard that and I have to disagree about the speed issue. We was as fast if not faster than teams that was UTC. If the QB is at 3 yds how slow will that make the offense? 1/10th of a second if that? I never hear anyone say that a SW was slow. lol Just joking...the key is that if you command tempo and work on tempo you will find that pistol is as fast as UTC.

Yeah. I agree I don't think it slowed us down at all. I really don't see a downside except like I said it made me cringe when we were on the 1 yd line.

Is anybody running any of Bill's IZ/OZ stuff from the power formation and how is it working?

I am not running any zone. I have an interest in it but then remember how hard it is to just get the concepts I need for our offense. Shoot if I asked any of my running backs to read the hole. Or read the DLM they would never even get the exchange. But that's just me and my guys.  I also am the only coach. So our IOL/wash(blast,counter,power), reach(perimeter) and base is enough for me. I know that zone is supposed to simplify but I don't know.

We wasn't running any of Moutjoy's IZ/OZ but we ran Power, Trap, IZ, and Stretch. We dumped Stretch around Week 1 and found that Power/Trap was better for us and Zone/Draw was a nice change up based off of what was going on with the game.
