What Mike Leach Will Do On Offense

Zeke Riser and Ryan Monceaux look at the Wazzu offense you’ll see tonight:

Zeke Riser (Started at DE in 2009 vs. Leach): mes For the UH defense, creating turnovers is a must. Otherwise, you’re going to see a lot of receivers getting into the defensive backfield with ease.

The Coogs don’t need to do too much; they just need to play solid, defensively-sound football. With Leach, you need to be ready to get lined up quickly and accept that you’ll probably need to play the entire series. The defense has had two games to get comfortable with each other: it is vital to play as a unit and for everyone to understand their responsibilities against this offense.

If you can play well together as a unit, you can make the field play smaller which forces tighter throws and could push Wazzu into making more mistakes.

Wazzu will use three main blocking schemes tonight – they don’t typically get fancier than that. Leach loves to split his tackles out 5-6 feet from the guards creating huge gaps.
