    Game features Rey McCloud, DeShawn Watson, James Conner as well as Matt Canada calling the offense.

    Notice the amount of shuffle passes used to loosen up the defense to eventually create space for Conner, as well the constant shifts. I actually forget how often extra lineman came in and also did shifts.

    I've seen a few other games. I think this upcoming year expect Watt to get carries off of jet sweeps, and also recieve shuffle passes. I think Friermuth and Conner will also find themselves playing some wing-back getting shuffle passes as well. The jet sweeps with RBs will continue as well. But as this game indicates, Canada's offense is far more diverse than what we saw with Ben trying to run it. I'm not going to say that it's going to be successful; however, as this particular game indicates, the scheme itself does a lot to help camouflage offensive line woes that's far outmatched by the opponents (that went on to win the national titile.)

    Neither of you would be considered wrong. Definitely college stuff. Zone read and spread formations was college stuff as well, then NFL coordinators ran it.

    Leave no stones unturned at any level. Gotta be cutting edge creative but not scared of the tired ass football 101!that seems to disappear at times around here.

    Are you saying you are tired of jet sweeps to set up the bubble pass, or the bubble pass being used to set up jet sweeps? Or tired of both those plays resulting in a 3rd down and 4 situation, leading to a 2 or 3 yard pass leading to 4th and 1? I myself cannot make up my mind which is more exciting to watch.

    The offense with Ben at the helm was a generic form of Canada's set. The jet sweeps set up the shuffle passes. The shuffle passes opens up running lanes. Watch a series or two of the Clemson game here and there's a dramatic difference in play selection compared to what plays were called for Ben.

    Two masterful single games in back to back seasons for Pitt - bumping off #1 Clemson and then Miami the following year. I'll take those highlight games anytime. HTP! :bowdown:

    Pitt played the university of New Mexico a few years back

    We went my wife was born in NM and graduated from the UNM

    There were about 7 other UNM fans there

    We met them all and one of them was the niece of the guy who bought my wife’s parents house

    Later in the day a friend was riding the incline and saw these people

    She said my friend is from NM

    They said yes we met her

    Small world
