I just don't see the zone plays being as effective as they were with Connor. Going to have to get a little more creative I think.
Even with a healthy Connor, the run game stalled out against Clemson and Wisky for whatever reason unless it was Connor making a play.
I agree. Defenses are going to focus on stopping Mike D. I'd expect to see some of the types of running plays from the Mitchell era and some of the Garcia eta brought back.
I think the drives where spurrier really wants to burn some clock he will bring in Cooper to run the zone read.
