I have a feeling that even if Muschamp had a Corvette capable going 290 mph that if his "Florida Way" means driving a Corolla 55 mph, he is going to ask Pease to drive the Corvette at 55 mph.
I found it somewhat comforting when Muschamp conceded that he let Quinn go to more of a zone attack against Mizzou. He (Muschamp) admitted that his approach in that game-going in-was to press a bit more, but the Tigers were doing things offensively that were working, and Quinn wanted to play more zone. Needless to say it gave the Tigers problems in the second half.
A smart coach doesn't look for one method or approach to win every game. You look at personnel, look at the opposing personnel, and you put a plan of attack in place that gives you the best opportunity to take advantage of what you do well at. Muschamp clearly let Pease adjust to and do what he wanted to to attack LSU and FSU in the second half. I think it was a mutual decision to keep the playcalling conservative down the stretch before the FSU game.
We've also got to get the parts in place to do exactly what Pease wants. That's happening.
