Like him or not, you’ve got to admit that Urban Meyer is a sharp cookie. So he’s realistic in acknowledging where his offense’s bread is buttered this year, regardless of all the put-Tebow-under-center talk being teased out there.
… Gators coach Urban Meyer wants to make sure Tebow wouldn’t get knocked around before taking him out of the shotgun formation.
“A lot of that would depend on the quality of our tailback,” Meyer said at SEC media days. “To play an under-center offense, you better have a monster back there at tailback that can take the pounding involved in that style of offense. It’s personnel based on your fullback, tailback and tight end, and we have not had that luxury.”
Well, yeah, but whose fault is that? Could it be that’s where you wind up when you’ve run an offensive scheme during your entire head coaching career that’s never produced a running back who rushed for 1,000 yards in a season?
