Urban Meyer Demonstrates the RPO

Post by FloridaAggie13 » September 12th, 2019, 12:23 pm

Fascinating football discussion where Meyer explains the spread offense and describes how they discovered the RPO at Utah - due to a blown assignment.

Interesting and entertaining.

Thanks Navy! Urban is a football genius and during his time at UF I had to switch my Florida-team allegiance to UF from FSU, much to my wife's chagrin (she's an FSU alumn).

He did an SI article back in 2005 or 2006 where he detailed the spread point by point and summarized it this way: "The idea is to put the maximum amount of pressure on the defense on every play." I love that approach.

After his first year at Florida in the SEC Meyer said he had to tweak the spread because he wasn't used to seeing defensive tackles run down a tailback. That didn't happen at Utah.
