First Fish Video Tutorial: The Inside Zone Read

If you had no exposure to the Spread Offense in the past, how do you figure out what is occurring on the field?  With the Spread….big holes would appear, but was that from the formation, unique blocking, or the direction we were attacking?  Plays start one direction, but the ball ends up elsewhere on a routine basis and Chip is fine with it?  We just had a huge hole for a great TD in the UCLA game (below)….but how did it happen?  Is there any consistency to the formations at all?  It seemed we could end up ANYWHERE on the field no matter what the initial formation was.  I really wanted to understand what we were doing!

The Sportscasters on TV have been terrible.  Frequently they say nothing because they are at a loss to explain what just happened.  Kirk Herbstreet is the best of them in correctly identifying the Zone Read, but not he nor anyone else as of August of 2011 have explained the difference between the two basic plays that the Oregon Offense revolves around , the Inside and Outside Zone Read.  (Unfortunately he and others have also confused who was being Zone Read a number of times on telecasts)  If we see an explanation on TV for the first time this fall after going into the seventh year of running this Offense, then we know they finally went to FishDuck.com, or read Ducks Illustrated!

Come back and discuss as usual; I am too tired for the usual buildup as I've put 45 hours into it over the last month. 

We love our Ducks,
