In Gap, Scrape, Option Exchange part 2, we study the triple option of yesteryear (I just like saying yesteryear) and look at the Oklahoma Wishbone from the 80’s and the Nebraska I from the 90’s. Name a better era of college football, I double dog dare you. This is part 2 of a 3 part series.
As a defensive minded coach who is serving as an offensive coordinator, I have to be aware of the gap and option responsibilities of our opposing defense. When I call a defense I like to switch gap exchange pre-snap, scrape exchange post-snap, and even option exchange against zone read and triple option teams. This is part 1 of a 3 part series.
