One SEC OL Coach on 2nd Level RPO’s:“Screw That Guy” - When defenses add safeties into the box it leaves an offense with two options: read him with an RPO or go right after him in the run game. One prominent SEC OL coach told X&O Labs he’ll choose the latter: “If he wants to come fit let our back go one on one with that dude.” In an X&O Labs exclusive interview, this coach talks about why a numbering system slows down tempo offenses, how he implements key breakers in the H/Y off formations and what he does to handle back side 4i defenders in the odd front: all talking points in the Insert (Split) Zone Study.
