Interesting quote from Oregon assistant coach and former Nebraska starting quarterback Scott Frost about offensive philosophy:
“The big thing is this: It helps greatly when an offense has a definite mentality to it. It helps greatly when you have a defined personality and set of standards. When I was at Nebraska, our calling card was we were a tough, physical team. Everybody knew it. We knew it. We were proud of it. We embodied it. We embraced it. We loved the fact that we were going to try to completely beat up a defense. Nobody wanted to play us because of the physical nature of our team.
At Oregon, to a man, everybody on our team has bought into the fact that we’re going to play fast, we’re going to wear you out, and we’re going to attack you. There’s absolutely no hesitation. I think when you have that kind of personality as a unit, offense or defense, and everybody knows the common goal and mission, then I think it’s really easy to get everybody on the same page and be successful. When people don’t know exactly what they want to do, they struggle.
It’s easy to point to that and say that’s what’s missing at Georgia, because… well, because that’s what’s missing at Georgia. But here’s what I’m wondering: in the abstract, if you were to ask Richt and Bobo what they want the personality of their offense to reflect, what do you think they’d say? And what would you like them to say?
