Good article written before the AF vs NM game about the triple option. I liked the use of the Pistol O in running the option:http://www.abqjournal.com/spor...n-offenses.htmlMike

The "spread" pass has given us a quick strike capability that the TO never offers. The problem, IMO, is that the coaches haven't seemed to figure out the right balance in play calling. When we run the TO, we only seem to call one type of play repeatedly and then abandon it for the pass. There needs to be a mix. Yes we are a running team, but I think TC and Co. got used to being able to have Jefferson bail them out with a good pass for yardage. We don't have Jefferson anymore - and we have shifted the balance to more passing with personnel that don't execute as well. I like the way we disguise our formations and I like that the deep ball is always the threat with us. When Navy and Army get shut down - they have no other options. When we get shut down, we can still play with the pass. Remember TJs last game against Utah. We were down big (we fumbled a lot) but we almost pulled off the upset and TJ threw something like 17-20 passes in the second half and we moved the ball.Like I have said all year, I think the coaching staff needs to take an honest look at how they are calling the games and preparing for the games they are calling.

I have a vivid, and quite enjoyable, recollection of a Navy Plebe QB passing up and down the field late in the last quarter of one of our games, in which we were trailing by a number of points.Must have been a dream since apparently passing isn't an option for Navy once they are behind late in a game. Damn shame since that victory seemed so real, and did I mention ENJOYABLE!!!
