With Coffman, we were in the I with DT behind him and threw it more in more of a pro-style look a good bit of the time. Yea, Coffman ran it some, but not much, and we often put DT in the wildcat when we wanted to run Zone Read. We ran a handful of QB runs with Coffman to keep people honest, but not close to what we did with Klein. If Waters wins the job, I would expect to see an offense more like what we ran with Coffman in 2010, or even Gregory in 2009. With Sams, who I personally think will win the job, we will look more like we have with Klein, except that I think our blocking schemes will change. We did a lot of pulling with Klein so that he could patiently wait for his hole and then go. With Sams, he is not going to be patient waiting for a hole, he wants to see a crease and hit it at 100 mph. I could see us doing less zone blocking and pulling and more double-teaming at the point of attack , trying to get a quick hole open so that he can explode. Remember, Same is an elite level athlete. He was recruited by the blue bloods of the SEC as an athlete. He may be the most explosive athlete we have ever played at QB (at least close with Bishop). The coaches will mold the offense to the strengths of the guy who is on the field.

So I'm wondering if it's time to scrap that run-first QB philosophy? It would be nice to have our offense peak at the end of the season and be ready to perform in the bowl game instead of looking like a shell of what it was in October.

But have read and heard a few things about Waters. Those who follow and evaluate JUCO football say he is very talented, a great decision maker, can make all the throws with accuracy and very deceiving as a runner. So would feel very comfortable with him running the show also. Can't imagine them signing Waters if they didn't think he had a chance of contributing. Will be interesting to see what happens.

Second, yeah our offense has had an annoying tendency to become less effective toward the end of the season. If we're going to keep running the QB we need to somehow minimize the beating he takes. I don't know how to do that of course, but there are other teams whose QBs run and don't take nearly the beating that Klein absorbed over the last couple years.
