“I actually think we’re ahead of last year in preparation,” Bobo said Friday. “I’ve mentioned it a few times. I feel like everybody is on the same page, a lot less missed assignments. I feel good.”
Less missed assignments?
“Just experience, number one, experience at the quarterback position,” Bobo said. “Guys have been able to get us in the right play, which cuts down on missed assignments for offensive linemen. When you get in the right play, you don’t have to practice against so many different looks and how to block every look. You’re only going to block certain looks, because you’re not going to run them against the bad looks.”
That makes sense, to be fair. Last year, the offense spent August installing a new no-huddle attack. As we saw against Boise State, the kinks were far from worked out when the season started. So things should be smoother with a year under the offense’s belt. Whether that translates into a more effective running game and less turnovers from Murray remains to be seen.
