From Bill Connelly’s piece about Oklahoma State’s new offensive coordinator:
Averaging nearly 90 plays and 44 points per game, the 2013 Tigers used modern-day tempo and made themselves almost un-scoutable. Three quarterbacks — Quinn Epperly, Connor Michelsen, and Kedric Boston — not only took snaps as first-stringers, but stayed on the field at other positions, too. […]
“There’s no law against it,” Surace says, matter-of-factly. “There’s no law against a team like Alabama, with two good quarterbacks, having them in on the same play occasionally. If we do it, it’s because we think we can run efficient plays.” […]
“Our guys can really process the information,” Surace says. “You can talk to them at a high level football-wise. They’re not NFL players, and we don’t have unlimited time with them, but within that small work week, we can give them a lot of information.”
The benefits of having a few different guys who can throw the ball can pay off in obvious ways, especially near the goal line.
Could you imagine running that with Fromm and Fields last season down on the goal line? Let’s see Todd Grantham defend that.
