An exciting new era has dawned as OU unveiled our new zone read running game. Contrary to what the coaches tried to make us believe before the season, we ran it more than just a few times. In fact, at least half of our running plays were either zone read or option plays. That’s great news!
The bad news is that there is a SEVERE problem with our main zone read package, and it’s the reason our offense was so bad the 1st Quarter. Be sure and check out the post “Why the Offense Struggled in the 1st Quarter“!!!
I’m sure more zone read and option iterations will be unveiled as the season progresses, but here’s what you need to know about what has been unveiled so far!
