I'd like to initiate some discussion on the upcoming game vs. Baylor.
From my viewpoint it seems like the key to the game is stopping Griffin and establishing a running game early on offensively. I believe, reading between the lines, that we will see some two-back sets against Baylor with Sims and Beshears in the backfield in a shotgun split-back set. This adds both protection packages for the QB, and also keeps the D honest on the run as DJ can get open in the flat with the respect given to Sims out of that set. It also sets up a nice zone-read option opportunity as well. I think this is a package we have been saving until Big 12 play. Just a hunch.
Defensively I'm not sure what our plan is. I think we might employ a spy tactic on Griffin, obviously. Perhaps this is the opportunity to employ TO at LB. Pretty easy assignment for him. Follow Griffin, and fuck him up.
I don't know much about Baylor's defense, honestly. I need to watch some film and evaluate it. Based on previous games they appear to be pretty salty sans TCU.
Any other input is greatly appreciated by this poster. Let's get some talk going.
