    This should be a 2 or 3 times a game call on 3rd and long. Especially when in FG range.

    Not sure if it was the last time we ran one, but it was effective.

    florida rarely runs screens and never runs naked boots or quick slants.

    We ran a screen against Toledo. Everyone on here eviscerated the coaches for the call saying it was cowardly.

    We all know why they called it now.

    Seems our coaches are damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    Who was the guy who invented the screen? I bet his team had a good couple of years.

    The buffalo bills with Thurman Thomas made a living with the screen.
    Thought we ran at least once in our first 2 games.

    Pretty sure we ran one against Toledo. It got blown up.

    Wikipedia ...
    "The bubble screen was essentially created by Don Read when he was head coach of the Montana Grizzlies, and Lou Holtz, head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, brought the play into prominence after calling Read and asking for the play."

    Ron Zook ran some. Never thought I'd say this, but we could use his offense.
