Resources for understanding the Spread Offense
As everyone knows, Coach Rodriguez is installing a new offensive system at Michigan (i.e., the Spread Offense). Coach Rod is considered one of the gurus of this offensive style. However, as the Wolverines have employed a pro-style offense for many years, most Michigan fans may not be intimately familiar with the terms and formations of the Spread Offense. To help the Michigan faithful understand what is coming, here are three good resources:
- Chalk Talk with Coach Rich Rodriguez (video) from MVictors.com
- The Spread Option Game from Three and Out (Coach Simmons)
- The Basics of the Zone Read Play from Varsity Blue
After reading the above, I will be happy to answer any questions you may still have regarding the Spread Offense. However, if you want a CORRECT answer, you may want to direct your questions to Coach Simmons over at Three and Out. Go Blue!
