Deception With Pre-Snap Motion In The Spread Offense

Hey folks! I found this great video over at Smart Football on Auburn Universities offense under offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn.

It is very well edited and really shows how Malzahn's offense uses pre-snap motion to deceive the defense. It reminds me of the Delaware wing-t in high school, how the wing back would motion pre-snap and really get the defense thinking, which is never good. This makes sense, considering Malzahn started his coaching career at the high school level.

It just shows that with practice and repetition, a well coached offense can make even some of the best defenses in the SEC guess wrong when they execute their fakes.




Keep spreading e'm!

Goal Line Defense vs The Spread Offense

Hey folks! I just posted a new article on our main site on defending the spread offense in a goal line situation. A successful goal line defense not only keeps the opponent out of the end zone, but it also provides a tremendous momentum shift and confidence boost for your entire team.

It's football emotions at your best!

In this era, teams who are good at spreading the field between the 20's are also spreading you right up to the goal line, and heck why not!?
