A word of caution here from the outset: don’t be too overly impressed by all the offense that we saw on Saturday. I’ve seen spring games in the past that tried, as much as was reasonably possible, to be a game-like competition. That’s not what we saw this year. What I saw was - after reviewing hythloday1’s excellent film reviews - a very vanilla offensive and defensive gaming scheme. VERY vanilla.
I get it, and I totally understand why. The coaches are teaching fundamentals of their system. There are offensive and defensive concepts and schemes that the players may not be ready for.
