An Inside Look at Gus Malzahn's Offense
ByJR4AUon May 26 2009 2:55 PM 
A small dose of X's and O's.
  The "Smash" is a standard passing "concept". Almost every playbook will include someversion of it. I recently bought Gus Malzahn's book, THE HURRY-UP, NO HUDDLE: ANOFFENSIVE PHILOSOPHY,  and it's the first passing concept he covers in the book.Remember Malzahn's offense isn't about gimmicky plays. His plays are the same stuff mosteverybody else is doing. It's his tempo that is the "revolutionary" part. I'll discuss the tempoin a later blog. When you hear "smash route" it really refers to a route combination. The wide receiver willrun a hitch route at 5-6 yards. The Tight End or slot receiver to that same side will run a 12yard corner route. That is he will go vertical for 12 yards then break at about a 45 degreeangle to the sideline. Some may refer to this as a "Flag Route". This route combination is adesigned "Cover 2 beater" but works against other coverages as well. The idea is to verticallystretch the outer third of the field with a High/Low concept. This is a standard tactic and canbe accomplished with many route combinations. The Smash is just one. Here are someexample plays: 
The "Mouse" Davis Run and Shoot version:
The Rich Rodriguez version:
 The Air Raid/Mumme/Leach/Franklin version
Spurrier's "Corkers"
 And Norm Chow's
