UW-Platteville
Offense Offensive Philosophy
1) 2)
Attitude: A.M.F. Spread the Field: Formations or Motion A. Forces the defense to declare their coverage and blitzes. B. Easier for the Quarterback to read coverage. C. Helps the run Game (5 to 6 simple plays). D. Create mismatches. Throw to Uncovered Receivers A. By Alignment. B. By Motion and Adjustment. C. By Play-action. **This forces defensive adjustments that help in protection and in running game.

3)

4) Hurt the Blitz: Recognize it – Protect it – Attack it.
A. B. Protections must be simple (man scheme). Attack (must have a game plan). EX: Sight adjustments Hot routes Bring in extra protection Screens

5)

Game Planning A. Must be able to adjust during game. B. Routes must be adjustable. C. Must have the right tools in the toolbox.

Offensive Goals
Offensive Goals:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. To outscore our opponent which will ensure a VICTORY! To score six times a game. To out-hit and punish every defense we face. To average 400 yards of total offense. To be one of the Top 5 DIII offenses in the nation.

Offensive Objectives:
1. ATTACK: We will play a fast break, up-tempo attack. We will force each opponent to react and adjust to our offense. We will always use intelligence and conditioning to our advantage. 2. GATA: We will “GET AFTER THEIR ASS!” This is the cornerstone principle of Platteville Football. 3. ELIMINATION OF SIW’s: It’s tough enough to beat your opponent. Take away the negative plays to ensure that we don’t beat ourselves. TURNOVER RATIO is the number one factor in winning and losing college football games. 4. SCORE: The object of the RUN-n-GUN offense is to score. We will score first, fast, and we will finish the fourth quarter. We will maximize the Red Zone and we will take advantage of every turnover that our defense creates by scoring points. 5. TEAM: Foremost, we must be come a true team. On and off the field, we act as one, united as a whole group, where together we can accomplish greatness.

“Hang Loose, One of Us is Fixing to Score!”

UW-Platteville
Offense

Offensive Mechanics
Our offense begins with Offensive Organization. With our simple organizational tools we are able to implement a very multiple offense. Organization is the key to our success within our system. Our mechanics are simple, yet effective. Our play calling is a simple approach that allows us to tell different players certain things to change the look we give the defense. Each player has words that affect him or himself and another player working together. We have two rules to our basic communication system. Focus Only On The Words That Affect You- this is the key to our simple play calling, do not get caught-up by all the words in the play call, listen to only those words that speak to you. 1. Learn To See The Big Picture- You will master our system once, and only once, you get past the stage of trying to figure out what you are supposed to do, and get to the point that you understand and can visualize the entire play and concept of the play.

Huddle Procedure

LOS

5 YDS. QB

X W R Y Z

HUDDLE PROCEDURE
• • • • • • • • • Center sets the huddle 5 yards from the ball. Linemen will bend down slightly, with hands on knees. Tackles will turn in at a 45-degree angle to face the QB. The back line, the Receivers and R back, will stand straight up. As the QB steps in front of the huddle, all talking will STOP. All eyes will focus on the Quarterback’s mouth. QB will then call the play. Focus only on those words and terms that specifically apply to you. Learn to see the BIG PICTURE, visualize the entire play

To the Line of Scrimmage
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Center will set the tempo by hustling to the LOS. All others will hustle to their proper alignments. Repeat the play and the snap count in your head. Approach the LOS with confidence. Get locked into your stance, ready to explode on the snap.

5

Play Calls
At UWP we try to keep play calling very simple and short in length. We implement two different types of play calls in our normal huddle situations. Our run game is all called by using words, i.e. the name of the play. Our passing game is called using a simple numbering system. We also use words in our passing game to tag and adjust our base plays, but the call will always use numbers in combination with the words.

Run Game

Basic Play Call

Dive Right
Tells us the running play we are running. Tells us the direction we are running the play to.

6

Passing Game
The following is an example of one our play calls within our passing game and also an explanation of what the each word means:

Basic Play Call
The first number indicates the protection and the release of the running back.

The last number indicates what concept we are running in our routes. It also indicates where the strength is located (odd = left, even = right)

962
The second number indicates the formation and the series that we are running.

Play Call With Motion and Tags

Y MO 984 Boston Hot
Motion is first in the play call. Tags or adjustments within the concept are directly after the play call. If we want to take the R-Back out of the protection and hot release him, that indication is last.

Snap Count Mechanics
I.
Offensive Cadence: We implement a very unsophisticated cadence system in hopes that the offensive team can better concentrate on WHAT and HOW intently, rather than when they are going to do something. There is no question that concentration is a key to getting off the ball, but once the snap count is called, it must be stored in your mind and your thoughts should switch to assignment recognition and intensity. The SNAP count must be automatic! The cadence is divided into 5 Phases!

I.1

Phase one: Quick count or First Sound snap—To keep the defense off balance we use a “First Sound” command as a quick count. The First Sound is DOWN. 1 The QB will merely call the snap as “on the First Sound” which means DOWN. 2 Everyone must get up to the L.O.S. quickly and get set in your stance. No shifting or motion will take place when a play is called on the First Sound. Example: Toss Right/Toss Right – on the First Sound. Phase Two: Color phase 1 The ball can be snapped on the color is called by the QB. He merely calls the play and says “on the color”, the second color is used as the snap count. 2 No motion or shifting 3 Good to use vs. defenses that stem or jumps from defense to defense Phase Three: Non-rhythmic snap counts 1 Go is the term used as our snap count even, though the QB will call the count on 1-2-3- or 4 as a huddle call. 2 If called on 1, the QB will pause for at least one full second after the second color and then shout GO. 3 If the snap count call was on 3, the QB will call Go 3 times on the L.O.S. and the ball is snapped accordingly. 4 This phase of the cadence is non-rhythmic Phase Four: Repeat (second cadence) 1 QB will go through the cadence once, IF no one jumps offsides he starts the 2nd cadence always on one. 2 Purpose is to try to draw the defense offsides. 3 Purpose is also to help determine front and coverage. Phase Five: Hard Count 1 This is designed to specifically draw an opponent off sides. 2 The Quarterback will use a non-rhythmic count. Phase Six: No Play – No Snap 1 Purpose is to try to draw the defense offsides. 2 QB will call in the huddle no play, no snap. Unless the defense penetrates across the neutral zone, the ball will not be snapped. 3 If movement, QB sneak 4 If no movement, QB will either take the penalty or call time out. Depends on the situation.

II.

Initiating Motion 2.1 2.2 Any time any category of motion is called, the snap count cannot be a phase one or phase two call. The man called into motion will initiate his movement on the first color, and the QB will be responsible for controlling the distance desired.

III.

Audible Mechanics 3.1 Basic Philosophy: We will audible merely to get us out of a bad play. We will not attempt to mastermind the game on the Line of Scrimmage with an audible. 1 Box- Number of defenders on the defensive front. 2 Side to Side- Number of defenders either side of the center. 3 Personnel- Where a specific player is located. 4 Looks- Specific front or coverage look. 5 Any time a play is changed at the L.O.S. the snap count is automatically one. 6 Disregard the audible. QB calls the play in the huddle and then says disregard the audible. This is to keep the defense off balanced when we do and audible and when we don’t.

IV.

“Check With Me” Mechanics Basic Philosophy: “Check with me” is where we package 2 plays given in the huddle and one will be called at the L.O.S. 1 Example: Run Dive at the 1 tech tackle. 2 Color will give direction.

CADENCE
Examples: On “Down” Down

DOWN – COLOR – COLOR – SET – GO – GO – GO
On One On Two on Two Hard Count On Repeat “Down Blue – Blue, Set Go” “Down Blue – Blue, Set Go, Go” “Down Blue – Blue, Set Go Go, Go, Go” “Down Blue – Blue, Set Go, Go, Set Go”

UW-Platteville
Offense

Formations And Motions

One of the defining characteristics of our offense is that we are a very MULTIPLE formation and motion offense. This allows us to gain better angles and leverage for certain types of plays, to maximize the use of our personnel that lets them get in the most favorable match-ups, creates uncertainty and confusion on the part of the defense, and allows great flexibility within the things we do.
A few simple terms allow our offense to change its look. Memorization is minimized, and basic can be combined in numerous ways to give us the possibility of a nearly endless number of different looks. More importantly, it allows us to put our best people or combination of people in positions on the field where they have the BEST chance of succeeding. 12

Formations
Formations allow our offense to spread the field. We like to make our opponent defend the entire field. We will stretch the defense both vertically and horizontally. Using different formations also allows us to put our best athletes against lesser athletes and weaker defenders. Our formations depend on landmarks, both on the field and in relationship to our own players.

Motions
Motion is the second part of how we want to align before we want the ball snapped. We use motion in our offense for specific, defined purposes some of which include: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. To disguise our intentions/delay defensive recognition To gain a blocker at the point of attack To create personnel advantages To force the pass coverage to declare man or zone To create coverage problems or checks To force the coverage to bump, changing personnel and alignment 7. To help circumvent the jam The basics of our motions will be first in the play call. A player and a type of motion will be the few words before the play call. We will designate WHO we want to be in motion and we will designate WHAT type of motion we want. The QB will control final destination with the snap count. It is vital to our offense that our WRs, RBs, and QBs know who has to be on the line of scrimmage and who has to be off.

Shifts
Shifting is a type of motion we will use to change our alignments before the ball is snapped. Shifts and Motions different because when we shift all players will reset before the ball is snapped. We use shifts in our offense for specific, defined purposes some of which include: 1. 2. 3. 4. To disguise our intentions/delay defensive recognition To create personnel advantages To create coverage problems or checks To force the coverage to bump, changing personnel and alignment

The basics of our shifts, like our motions, will be first in the play call. All shift are player specific. We will designate WHO we want shift and WHAT shift we want. The QB will control when he wants the shift. It is vital to our offense that our WRs, RBs, and QBs know who will be shifting their alignments on each call.

Defensive Recognition
Our first key to our success is to recognize the defense. Our offense will see many defensive schemes. Some teams will prefer to play zone coverage against most of our formations. They may play a 2 deep or 3 deep zone with four or five defenders underneath. Other teams will play a man scheme against us. They will also do so from a 1 deep or 2 deep look. These teams will also blitz from all points on the field. We will see various fronts also. A majority of the time the defense will have 5 defenders in the box. This will include down linemen and linebackers. For our offense to be successful it is important for our players to recognize and understand what the defense is doing. We will have tools in the toolbox for everything we will see, but we have to know what they are doing.

Coverage
We identify the defenses’ coverage by first finding the safeties. We want to know if they are in a 2 deep look or in a 1 deep look. Once we have identified the safeties, we will next look at the technique of the defenders over the split ends and the wings. We will look for alignment keys. These keys allow us to determine a few basics of the coverage we will see. We should be able to determine if it is man or zone, and also where a potential blitz man happen.

One Deep
FS & SS:
One deep, aligned in the middle of the field or formation, 10 yards deep, eyes on the QB. SS head up to inside of #2, 5 yards or less from LOS, eyes on #2.

UW-Platteville Offense
Running Game
In our run game we are able to feature our running back vs. 4, 5, and 6 defenders in the box. We are also able to run the ball with our quarterback. Our starting point will be throwing the football. When teams begin taking defenders out of the box to defend the pass we will then run the ball effectively. We can run the ball out of any formation that we have. In addition we will run the ball to balance our offense at times. We will use schemes that help us to outnumber the defense at the point of attack and use their alignment to our advantage. We can also use the running game to set up the passing game. We will do so by including play action plays in our passing attack.

UW-Platteville Offense
Goal Line and Short Yardage
In goal line and short yardage situations we will use a tight end formation. We have the ability to use two tight ends and adjust our backfield to a one or two back set. Out of this formation we can still run our basic passing package. We will use four or five basic running plays. The key to success in this formation is aggressive blocking and the mentality that we are going to get the first down or touchdown.

53

Goal Line Formations
Our Goal Line system is based on two tight-end formation with two backs in an I formation. We also have one flanker. In our system we have an adjusting player that will line-up according to formation call. We use a number system to move the adjuster. We can also move other players by adding formation adjustments, which are words.

UW-Platteville
Offense

Passing Game
A major key to the success of our balanced offensive philosophy is having a passing game that can make use of numerous different concepts and formations, out number coverage, create positive match-ups, convert numerous situations successfully, and in general provide us with a “Tool Box” full of tools that gives us good answers to every defense we see. The structure of our offense allows us to do this through simple building blocks that can be used in different combinations. These building blocks include pass protections, passing concepts, formational series with tags, route packages that allow us to change a passing concept’s look, screens, and play action passes. As our understanding and execution of the different elements of our system, we expect to be able to throw the ball successfully at any time in the game, from any where on the field, and to be able to put our players into situations that they can succeed in.

63

UWP Pass Offense
Basic Pass Principles of Pass Offense
1. Protection- The key to our Success! 2. Beat the Blitz- Recognize it! Protect it! Attack it! A big play is about to happen! 3. Route Conversion- Some routes are totally changed vs. some coverage. Why: Some routes simply will not work against some types coverage. How: Pre-snap coverage recognition, WRs & QBs read on the move. 4. Passing Concepts- These concepts are the same across all the series in our offense. This allows fast learning and allows us to show many different looks to the defense. How: Simple number system 5. Educated Freedom- Players must always have a common sense approach to operating and running routes, understanding that their job, first and foremost, is to get open in a way that the QB can find them. These situations include both the D.A. rule and A.M.F. rule. They must also understand what their overall job is within a given route, and do what ever it takes to get that job done. The last part of this principle is knowing all the assignments and how they affect your route and how your route affects them. 6. “Sandbox” Rules- Each player within a concept, by the design of the concept, has a specific area assigned to him in which to get open, or a “sandbox.” Receivers must ensure that their route stays out of the “sandbox” of another player, creating congestion and ruining our play, making whatever adjustments necessary.

64

7. Built in Constants- There are certain things built into our pass offense that do not change: a. If there is no FS in the middle of the field, someone will be assigned to replace him. b. Vs. Cover 2, we will build triangles to read. c. We will throw the ball deep on the hashes if a FS is in the middle of the field (Covers 1 & 3). d. Against hard corners, Cover 2 type defenses, we will never attempt to throw a ball over the head of a cornerback who’s retreating; take the short throw. e. Vs. Zone coverage, receivers are to find and settle in holes between pass defenders; QBs are to throw the ball to those holes and not to lead them. f. Vs. Man coverage, receivers are to stay on the move, always work for separation, accelerating away from pressure. QBs are to lead the receivers and allow them to keep running away, maintaining that separation. g. ‘Q’ Receiver: within all of our passing concepts, we will have a player built in that will break off his route so the QB has a quick option against the blitz. The QB and WRs must always know who is the Q and who makes him adjust his route. 8. QBs never pass up an open receiver to wait for another to get open. 9. Scramble Rules- In the event of a scramble, receivers have definite break-off courses based on the type of route they are running. The QB will never throw a ball late into the middle on a scramble. 10. Run After Catch- All people involved in the passing game must be aware that over 50% of the yards gained in the passing game come after the catch. Receivers will be trained where to go after the catch based on coverage, and the QBs will be trained to provide the specific types of throws that enables them to maximize their RAC gains.

65

11. Uncovered PrincipleForcing defenses to “cover down” on our split receivers is something we believe in as strongly as anything in our offense. We work to throw to any uncovered receiver created by alignment or motion. We have two basic types of uncovered throws, each has a special audible or cadence indication. If we fail to force the defense to cover our receivers it gives a license to put an extra man in the box to defend the run and become an extra rusher vs. our passing game. Rules for Throwing Uncovered 1. Any receiver who can catch the ball and gain 4 yards is uncovered.
2. Only throw on first or second down or 3rd with less than 5 yards to go.

How to Throw the Uncovered Principle
The first diagram shows how we teach our uncovered principle. The receiver widens on his release at about 45 degrees, looking for the ball quickly. The QB will simply rise up and throw on the first step. We will practice this through our uncovered receiver drill. Versus a defender that tries to split two receivers, both receivers execute their uncovered release with the QB reading the defender. Since we only want 4 yards on this throw, as long as the ball is caught we have a successful play. We will widen splits when defenders try to play between us so that we can “break the defender off” from any help. Our second form of uncovered we call bubble. It functions like a quick screen, mostly run to the trips side. We will create an uncovered receiver through blocking and route running.

Pass Protection
The first building block of our passing game is protection. Great protection is the most basic key to the success of our pass offense. We are, and always will be, a protection first team, which is to say that it gets top priority in our emphasis, our installation, and all our thinking related to any part of the passing game. Successful pass protection is the result of a total effort that involves EVERY member of the offensive unit:
− Our linemen must be know and be able to execute our schemes, but even more, they must maintain a fierce pride in protecting the passer that says, “Nobody touches the quarterback.” − Our back must understand his role within different protection schemes. He must get himself to the right places, and be physical enough to constantly handle linebackers and defensive ends. − Our receivers play a major role by identifying coverage and potential blitz situations, understanding when they must break off their route to sight adjustments (being the ‘Q’ receiver), and most importantly GET OPEN in the time required by each pass so that the linemen and back do not have to pass block for unnecessary periods of time. − Our quarterback is the center of it all, and he insures that we are a great protection team through the right recognition and communication. He must also get the ball of on the correct timing, and throw the ball away rather than taking foolish sacks. Our protection packages provide us solid answers for any situations that come up. As we understand how each of them work, and each position understands and carries out their individual responsibility related to protection, we WILL be a GREAT protection team at UW-Platteville.

67

Protection Concepts
The basics of our protection comes form concepts. These concepts will remain constant throughout our whole offense. Our protection concepts allow us to teach a basic part of our offense quickly and then incorporate it into a number of passing plays, by doing this we become very multiple with only a few teaching points. Our protection concepts are as follows: Index 1 Rip/Liz 9 30’s Play Action Smoke Protection Concept the Index Indicates Slide Protection Gap Protection Man Protection Quick Protection Play Action Protection Semi-Roll Protection

The direction of the protection is either determined by the last number of the three digit play call e.g. 981 RB goes left, a direction call within the play call e.g. Rip/Liz, or is determined by the play e.g. RB goes right on all quick protections.

For Example: If you see the play call 981, you should know by the last number to which side the RB is blocking and that the center has to go opposite. 1 indicates that the RB goes left. The first number tells you that we are running a man protection scheme.

68

“1” Slide Protection
Our slide protection is used to protect against outside blitzes and overloads. In this protection the RB has to double read the backers. We will slide from the first uncovered lineman on away from the RB. The back-side tackle will stay man on the defensive end with the center or the guard picking up blitzing backers. The center determines weather he or the guard will slide and check outside. In the 50’s series the RB goes away form the call. This will be the only time in protection when this happens. The center or the uncovered lineman goes to the call.

“Rip/Liz” Gap Protection
We can use this protection in any series. We will use it if we have trouble picking up any type of stunts or blitzes. We may also use this protection for our quick passing game. This is a zone protection scheme. The line will always protect the gap away from the call stepping with the play-side foot first. The RB will block the defensive end to the call by attacking him aggressively. Be aggressive if this protection is used in the quick passing game. If a “Jock” call is added everybody cut blocks.

“9” Man Protection
We use this protection in our 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s schemes. This is a five or six man protection depending on the formation (no back or one back). We should be able to protect all five/six man rushers with the QB being responsible for the sixth/seventh rusher. The RB is responsible for the outside backer to the play side. The center always identifies the Mike backer. Mike call depends on the front call by the RB. Mike is either the single backer in the box or the 2nd backer in the box away from the call. To block Mike the center calls either a single block or a combo block with a guard depending on the defensive alignment. The center will double read Mike to the outside backer away from the call. We have three additional calls for the running back in the protection: “Max” RB will stay and protect and not release for his route; “Rambo” RB will line up away from the call but still protect to the play side as if he was aligned to the call side; “Chip” RB chips the front side defensive end to help the tackle before he leaves for his route.

“30” Quick Protection
Most 30’s use Quick Protection. Our Quick Protection is based on our Man Protection and is a man scheme. This is a five or six man protection depending on the formation (no back or one back). We run block the defenders initially. This is a very aggressive block because we have to get the defenders’ hands down. The RB will always protect to the right unless given a “Louie” call where he goes to the left. The center always identifies the Mike backer. Mike call depends on the front call by the RB. Mike is either the single backer in the box or the 2nd backer in the box away from the call. To block Mike the center calls either a single block or a combo block with a guard depending on the defensive alignment. The center will double read Mike to the outside backer away from the call. Cut on “Jock” call.

Play Action Protection
We use three different types of protection on play action plays. On fake draw passes we use our Man Protection. On all other play action passes we have to block aggressively selling run first do the defensive line and the backers. The RB caries out his run fake and blocks by getting tackled if he is not included in the routes. On Waggle passes, the backside guard pulls and hooks the defensive end while the other offensive linemen block down aggressively. On all other play action passes we always block the play that is called like a run without going down field.

“Smoke” Semi-Roll Protection
We use this protection for a semi-roll by the QB. It is always a six man protection. The RB checks and helps against the play-side defensive end. If the end is secured he leads the QB and checks blitzes from the play-side D-Gap to the A-Gap. The play-side guard and tackle reach or man block without losing ground. The play-side has to cut if necessary. The center, the back-side guard and tackle reach and hinge. The back-side tackle has to control the backside defensive end.

Passing Concepts
The basics of our passing game come in the form of concepts. These concepts will remain constant throughout our whole offense. Our passing concepts allow us to teach a basic part of our offense quickly and then incorporate it into a number of formations, by doing this we become very multiple with only a few teaching points. Our passing concepts are as follows: Number Concept the Number Indicates 0 Mesh Concept 1-2 Vertical Concept 3-4 Smash Concept 5-6 Screen Concept 7-8 Flat / Curl Concept 9 No Designated Concept – This will be game planned Note: Odd #’s = Formation Strength to the Left; Even #’s = Formation Strength to the Right. The concept does not change.

For Example: If you see the play call 981, you should know by the last number what route concept we are running. 1 or 2 indicates the vertical concept. This would not change in any series 50 and up. 951/952, 961/962, 971/972, 981/982, and 91/92 would be all vertical concept routes out of different formations. The route and the method we run the routes will stay similar throughout each play.

75

“0” Mesh Concept

50 East/West
80 East/West

90 East/West

Our “0” concept is known as the Mesh Concept, and it attacks the underneath edge of coverage very rapidly, many times from a tightened environment. This concept creates multiple “rubs” by incorporating different crossing routes. Our Mesh Concept is a quick rhythm concept, whose primary purpose is to attack man-to-man defense by creating match-up problems and multiple rubs. With this in mind we also have a zone better built into the mesh concept. This concept, we believe, attacks most of the defenses we will face. Since “0” is only a single number, East and West will be used to identify the formation strength, with East being right and West being left.

“1-2” Vertical Concept

61-62

71-72 81-82 91-92

“1-2” signify the Vertical Concept in our offense. This concept allows our offense to attack and stretch the defense toward the end zone. The vertical passing game is a staple of our offense. We normally will designate our areas of attack as 18-22 yards down the field. The specific parts of the field that this concept attacks include: 4yards outside of the numbers on each side of the field, 2 yards outside each hash mark, and in some cases directly down the middle of the field. We will also have a lower level control route. This concept will be used against any kind of coverage we see, whether it is Man-to-Man, any zone concept.

“3-4” Smash Concept

63-64

73-74 83-84 93-94

The Smash Concept is one of the best ways we have of putting pressure on two deep coverage by creating situations where the cornerback cannot cover two people; he will see a six yard hitch in front of him and have a deeper-developing flag route behind him. Depending on the coverage and situation, we can use it to attack down the field on the deep outside edge, or underneath as a ball-control pass. This concept is good against Cover 2 primarily, but we can and will use it vs. Cover 3 and Man-to-Man defenses.

“5-6” Screen Concept

15-16 25-26 65-66 85-86 95-96

The Screen Concept is a concept that we like to rely on. We use our screen game to control the blitz and pass rush by inviting the defense up-field and then allowing them to rush. Our offensive line will block downfield as we throw underneath to our receivers or back. We are attacking the rush and blitz. We are also getting offensive linemen downfield vs. defenders that are not used to being blocked by linemen. This concept can be used to attack about any defense we will face. Mainly we would like to use this concept when we are getting a hard rush or zone blitzed.

“7-8” Flat/Curl Concept
97-98

67-68

77-78 87-88

The Flat/Curl Concept is used to stretch the defense horizontally. We like to stretch a flat defender to the sideline and replace him with a receiver behind him. At the same time we will control the middle of the field with a short control route. This creates a triangle of receivers for the QB to read. This concept allows us to attack an area 12 yards down the field on the hashes and the area 5 yards deep on the numbers. Lastly the control route enables us to attack the middle of the field at a depth of five yards. This concept is best at attacking both Cover 3 and Cover 4.

Formational Series
The second building block of our offense is our formational series. Each series is unique and adapts our passing concepts to various formations. The 30 series is the only exception to this rule. Our series consist of the following: − 30’s- 3 step passing game out of Doubles, Trips, Panther or Hurricane formations. These are the only “pass plays” we teach. −

50’s- 5 step passing game out of Cluster formation, with the R-Back going
opposite of the strength.

60’s – 5 Step passing game out of Trips with the running back going to
strength.

− − −

70’s – 5 step passing game out of Hurricane. 80’s – 5 step passing game out of Doubles. 90’s – 5 step passing game out of Panther.

In our offense the 30’s are set plays that must be memorized. However, the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s will incorporate one of our 6 passing concepts into their respective formation.

81

30’s
Our 3-step passing game is the 30’s series. This is the “BREAD AND BUTTER” of our offense. We will throw it at anytime, anywhere on the field. We prefer to use it against covers 3 and 1 or against the blitz. This is a high percentage series. The completion should be 80% - 85%. These are the only “pass plays” we teach. The basic concepts do not apply to the 30’s. We can run these plays out of most of our formations, but a majority of the time we like to run them from Doubles, Trips, or Panther.

Defensive Answers to Our 3-step Passing Game
1. They will give up the 5 or 6-yard completion. Then think of tackling the receiver at
that yardage. If the defensive coordinator has done his homework, they will realize that half of all passing yardage comes AFTER THE CATCH. So a 5 or 6-yard catch will usually turn into a 10 - 12 yard play. We will take that!!

2. They will play a 2 deep concept either zone or man underneath. Either of these might
force us to throw the fade route. We can do this, but we would prefer to run the football against this coverage. The reason being, with 4 wide-outs it would take 6 people to cover them. This puts only 5 in the box, and gives us a great opportunity to run the football. However, if we are not able to run the ball, our fade flat and under slant should still work effectively.

3. BLITZ, If the first two theories do not work for them they can go to the blitz theory.
If they bring 6 we can block that, 7 is the problem. If the use 4 across coverage the QB has to make a decision. One, get the ball off before they get to him, or two bring in an extra player for protection. We prefer the protection concept. **REMEMBER this is man to man, no help, if the DB makes on little mistake it is 6 points.**

30’s Receiver Rules
A.M.F. - This is for both wings and wide-outs if a defender is within 5 yards on hitch or out then beat him deep. Or, if his feet do not move on your release up field, work to get over the top of the defender, make the decision at break point. D.A. - This is for wings, if the defender over you plays wide or on the snap of the ball flies out to cover the flats just open up to the QB stay 3-4 yards from LOS.

COACHING POINTS FOR WIDE RECEIVERS IN THE
30 – Under Route, Outside foot up in stance. Aim for a point 3-5 yards over #2 pos. vs. Zone go to spot, vs. Man use misdirection moves. 31 – Read slant, Push vertical for 4 yards, read the technique of the coverage. If you have a loose corner break at 4 yards and aim for 12 yards on the hash, this should be a 45degree angle. If you have a tight corner break at 4 yards and slant at an angle that holds the defender behind you, the slant angle will be much more flat. 32 – Hitch, Drive 6 yards at the DB’s technique, stop, hitch to the inside, come back down your stem. Follow A.M.F. rules. Convert to fade if corner does not move his feet. 33 – Out, Run a 6-yard speed cut, getting your head around quickly to pick the ball up in the air. Convert to fad vs. Roll up corner. 34 – Slant, Push vertical for 4 yards and break off the wingback. 38 – Stop Route, one step up, turn shoulders and numbers to QB, you may feather behind the LOS. 39 – Fade, Read Coverage: Cover 2 - Take outside release, settle between corner and safety. Stay wide. Cover 5 - Same as Cover 2, stay on the move. Cover 1 - Attack the technique of the DB. Then release up field, stay on the bottom of numbers, the QB will lead you to the sideline.

The basis of this series is to allow our offense to move the R-Back to the back-side of the formation. The 50’s are part of our 5-step passing game and are the only series that the R-Back will go away from the call. We will incorporate a cluster on the front-side on some plays, on the back-side the split end will cut down his split to 5-6 yards from the tackle.

Read the backside outside linebacker first. The curl route on the backside should be open if the linebacker does not get under it. If there is nothing on the backside, your next best option is reading the triangle on the front side. Read the front side flat defender, most likely the strong safety. The linebackers should be held in the box by the option route by the inside route. The SS should widen with the wheel route, opening the curl. If the Corner starts to get nosy on the stack route by the split end look to the wheel. Read the backside the same if you like your match-up there better.

90’s
This series is run out of our Panther Formation. We want to spread the field as much as possible in this series. Our goal is to create mismatches for or receivers. The 90’s are also designed to involve our quarterback in the running game when defenses begin to take players out of the box in order to stop the passing game

Route Packages
Route packages allow our offense to change the look of our basic concepts. Some our route packages affect the front-side of the concepts, while others will change the backside. These route packages can be used in a number of our formational series and with most concepts. The packages that begin with an “F” will change the front-side, and those that affect the backside will begin with a “B.” There are a few exceptions to this rule; Scissors and Smoke are both front-side packages. Follow is the only route package that can be either front-side or back-side.

Front-Side Route Packages
Follow
This Route Package utilizes a shallow crossing route in combination with a dig route. This is one package that can be used on the front-side and the back-side. The play will be called with a player then follow. Follow tells the next man to the player’s outside to run the dig. The player will run the crossing route. All other assignments will remain the same.

Smoke
This Route Package may or may not change the route combination. The QB will semi role to the call. The receivers’ routes will most likely be deeper since the QB is rolling to them. The back-side receiver’s routes will change into a crossing concept on different levels. We may also use throwbacks to keep the defense honest.

118

Stick
. This route package utilizes a shoot
route and a stick route behind it. Like our Follow and Trail packages, we will tag a player and the next WR outside of him will adjust his route also. Stick is also a front-side and back-side tag. So in Trips right, if we say W Stick, the next WR outside, Y, would be doing the Shoot Route.

Scissors
This Route Package utilizes a corner route by the inside receiver with a post by the outside receiver. This is good against man-to-man and Cover 2.

Flood
This Route Package attempts to flood a defenders zone with multiple receivers.
C

B

119

Fresno
This Route Package is a reverse Flat-Curl package. This is good versus 2-Deep coverage. The Split End runs a whip route, and the wing runs a hook route. The wing wraps the LB. He must find the window. The R-Back sits down over the box.

Trail
This Route Package utilizes a Crossing route with an Angle route behind it. This is very good in short yardage and against teams that want to wall off our shallow cross package. Like Follow, we tag one player and Trail. Trail tells the next player outside that he will be doing the crossing route. So in Trips right, if we say W Trail, the next WR outside, Y, would be doing the crossing Route. This is also a frontside and back-side tag.

Texas
This Route Package compliments our vertical passing game. The R-back is running an angle route, the Wing has a seam choice, and the Split End runs a hook route.

120

Back-Side Route Packages
Bama
This Route Package uses a switch route combination. Both routes are verticals, but the receivers cross paths coming on the line, with the inside receiver going first. Both rotes also may be broken off.

Bench
This Route Package is based on our stick package. It allows us to build in a deeper stick route into any of our other concepts on the back-side. The shoot route will be 5 yards deep and the stick route will be 10 deep.

Boston
This Route Package is based on our smash concept. It allows us to build in a smash route into any of our other concepts on the back-side.

121

Buffalo
This Route Package is our way to tag our Flat-Curl concept on the back-side. The Split End runs a curl route, and the wing runs a flat route.

Baltimore
This Route Package is a reverse Flat-Curl package. This is good versus 2-Deep coverage. The Split End runs a whip route, and the wing runs a hook route. The wing wraps the LB. He must find the window.

Bandit
This Route Package allows us to tag Flat-Fade on the back-side. The wing runs a flat route, and the Split End runs a fade.

Play Action
Our play action pass is the final building block in our passing game. We must be able to use the play action pass to keep the defense honest. Most of the time we like to play action off of our Chase play, we will do so from Doubles and Trips. We can also play action off our draw plays. Fake R-draw can be used in our 60’s and 80’s series. We can also use Fake QB-draw from both of our No-Back sets (70’s and 90’s). We will also use a run fake bubble our bubble route. We have two different concepts within our play action passing game. One is our Boot concept and the other is our Waggle concept.

Boot
Our boot concept is a naked boot by the quarterback. The basic route package incorporates a short receiver right in front of him with a deeper crossing route coming into his vision late. In Trips, the Chase fake will always go away from the trips side.

Waggle
131

Waggle is the second part of our play action passing game. The basic route package is the same as boot, but we will tag the waggle concept. The other difference between boot and waggle is that we pull the back-side guard to the front-side (to the QB’s roll). This allows us more blocking and greater passing time. This also allows us to run fake to the 3receiver side in our Trips formation.

UW-Platteville
Offense Situational Offense
A great thing about our offense is that we can use our base system in situations that other teams may go into their 2minute offense. We feel we can score using our base passing game with 2 minutes left. Situational football is a key to success as an offense. We can use the clock to advantage when we are ahead and can also score in very short amounts of time from great distances.

134

ONE-MINUTE OFFENSE
Our one-minute offense is designed to move the ball quickly down field and enable our offense to score either a touchdown or field goal. In order for our offense to operate efficiently we must all be on the same pace and know the situation. A “MAYDAY” call puts us in our one-minute offense. Thee basic formation is Doubles, or Trips to the wide side of the field. The QB will call out the play, and then proceed into the cadence. The cadence will be “Set Go.” Anytime we want to stop the clock, we will call Kill, Kill—the ball will be snapped on Go. QB throws ball to the ground behind LOS.

FINAL SECOND PLAN
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Last play Hail Mary with more than 25 yards to go. QB must throw the ball high and to the end zone. (DO NOT OVERTHROW) QB—NO sack—put the ball up. Receivers align to doubles formation. (Possible use of motion to allow for Receivers be alert for laterals or tips. Linemen will be in 2-point stance with narrower splits. If field goal wins, field goal team must be alert if no time outs are left. (If NOT on field goal team you SPRINT off the field.) Maintain pose. (Many games have been WON on the last play.)

effectively. Our one-minute offense concerns itself with two areas: 1. Saving time on the clock if tied or behind. 2. Wasting time on the clock if ahead during final minutes. Our ability to function smoothly and efficiently in these time periods can have a great effect on our season. Knowledge of the rules as they apply to the game clock is the single most important factor in this phase of the game. The wise use of time-outs is the first factor to be considered. Each team is allowed three (3) time-outs per half. It is imperative that we do not use any of our time-outs unnecessarily during the normal course of the game. If at all possible, we would like to have all three of our time-outs available for our two-minute offense. I. The Game Clock Stops: When time-out is called by an official A. On an incomplete pass B. When ball carrier goes out of bounds C. During administration of a penalty D. While chain gang measures for a first down E. When we make a first down F. When a fair catch is made on a punt G.

137

OUR ONE-MINUTE OFFENSESIVE PLAN WHEN WE ARE AHEAD
GENERAL POINTERS OF IMPORTANCE FOR QB’S AND ALL OFFENSIVE PLAYERS

1. 2.

Do not call a time out. Use close to the full 25 seconds on each play if the clock is running. But do not cut it so close that you risk a clockstopping penalty. Runners and receivers stay in bounds. Ball carriers should over protect the ball. Cover it with two hands and do not be too intense in fighting for extra yardage thereby allowing more defensive players a shot at you and at the ball. REMEMBER!!! The defense is going to be going after the ball! If there are less than 25 seconds remaining allow the clock to run down without leaving the huddle. Do not incur a penalty. It stops the clock. If you are injured try to get off the field under your own power. If you remain on the ground the clock will be stopped. If at all possible we want to avoid this happening.

3. 4.

5. 6. 7.

138

FORMULA FOR USING MAXIMUM TIME IN LAST 1 MINUTE There are two Tables shown on this page, which help to illustrate the time, which can be “burned.” These Tables are based on factors, which involve three variables:
1. 2. 3. The down The time remaining The number of time outs still available to our opponents

Table I shows the situations in which you merely need to kneel down. In actuality the factors are shown in the purest form since the Table is constructed with no time being used for the actual running of the QB Kneel play. (Victory Play) Table II shows the time you can realistically expect to use when we run a play, which in itself is designed to consume time. These would not be QB Kneel plays. The basic assumption is that you can use five seconds in actually running a play when our opponents call a time out immediately upon tackling the ball carrier. When the opponents have no time outs remaining, we feel we use 10 seconds (5 seconds to run the play and 5 seconds to unpile) for east first, second, and third down play. Fourth down would still be a 5-second play. Table I: QB KNEEL FORMULA
