  • USC & shotgun formation

    i was just wondering if anyone knows why USC never opperates out of the shotgun formation? i dont think ive seen them once in shotgun formation. im not sure why. someone told me they heard it messes with the recievers timing on routes. anyone know the reason?

    I read that they were experimenting with it now.

      i think it would be good for them even if they only ran like 2 or 3 plays out of shotgun formation. it might have helped them to have more time to throw against UCLA (that and some screen passes).

        i think they'll use it A LOT more once corp is qb.

              Yeah SC is installing it this spring, and Booty is looking good running it(he ran shotgun in HS).

                nice. im glad they decided to add it. maybe we'll see some more empty backfield plays too.

                  Yeah, Booty ran a primarily shotgun offense at Evangel. It'll probably be a pretty easy transition for USC with him at QB.

                    Sarkesian is now calling plays and is a big fan of the gun from his BYU days. Lane Kiffin was not a hige fan of it and as much as they may be tinkering with it they will not go to it as their primary or anything. It may be just another look for them.

                        the offense has been pretty okay the past few years without it

                          yeah i dont want to make any drastic changes. i would like to see it thrown in once in awhile but not excessive. my biggest hope for the offense next year is that they will do a better job establishing the run game. shouldnt be too big of a problem with all the recruits and now last years freshman have experience

                            yeah well, they have been fine without it, but i think being able to go out of the gun will help them with there protection, not having as much pressure, being able to see more of the field and look at more options. Just a different look. We wont be like Texas Tech or anything going out of the gun every play.

                              yeah i read that they are interested in using it more on like 3rd down plays. i also read one of the reasons carroll hadnt used it was because his old mentor was against it. his mentor felt that by moving the quarterback away from the center and affected the flow and momentum of the QB's rhythm. makes sense but im glad they are adding it for a few situations ecspecially it booty used it a lot in high school. i heard since booty, corp and sanchez are all a couple inches shorter than palmer and leinart were playing out of the gun and starting back further helps them see better down field in certain situations which hopefully should reduce some batted down passes. im glad they added it even if they only run it once a game
