Default Emory & Henry Formation Entertains

In the win over Arkansas, Head Coach Steve Spurrier lined up the Gamecocks offense several times in the Emory & Henry shift.

The E&H formation is unusual. In it the offensive tackles, who are ineligible receivers, split outside almost to the sideline with an end and a back on either side of the formation. The center and two guards remain in the middle of the field with the quarterback and a running back. A diagram below shows the formation.

Spurrier first used the E&H formation while coaching at Florida. According to
Florida newspapers, as a youngster, Spurrier saw Emory & Henry College run plays from it. Thus, he named the formation, the Emory & Henry Shift.

Emory and Henry is a small liberal arts college located in extreme Southwestern Virginia. Spurrier, who grew up in Tennessee, also used the formation while coaching the 2001 Washington Redskins.

In the game against Arkansas Saturday, quarterback Stephen Garcia threw a quick bullet to Gamecock receiver Kenny McKinley from the formation. McKinley streaked between two Razorback defenders behind good blocks from the tackle and the end (Jared Cook) for a 28 yard gain. On the play, McKinley set a new all time receiving record. The play is diagrammed below.



Spurrier later called the same play again for a short gain to Joe Hills.

A third call from the formation was slightly different play. On that play, quarterback Chris Smelly completed an eight yard quick slant pass to the big tightend Weslye Saunders.

The E&H Shift is yet another wrinkle opposing defensive teams must plan for when they play the Gamecocks.

I wonder what a 10 yard post in could do out of that.
