Today, in everything old is new again

I saw this picture and had to chuckle a little.

That is, until I thought… hmmm, there’s a team out there I follow having problems in short yardage goal line situations that has a loaded backfield, a quarterback who can run and throw and a beefy offensive line in front of them…

I’ve had stranger thoughts.

    Lou Holtz used it on the goal line when he had those loaded ND teams. Jerome Bettis, Ricky Waters, Reggie Brooks all lined up behind Tony Rice was lethal.

    Any change to how we have handled would be welcome to me. We certainly have a diverse group of options to place in all 4 of those backfield positions.

    Great. Let’s start there and then go with the play I’m baffled hasn’t made a return, or at least an attempted return, since they made it legal to push the pile again this year.

    They still can’t run it the same way they did because the ends have to be on the line of scrimmage now, but the concept is the same.

    THAT would be making the old new again.
