    I will be making some changes. I am going to go lighter on the 2 TE sets and get me more ace 3 wide sets.

    I will be making some minor adjustments to my playbook from the past two seasons, mainly to add some additional spread option looks to take advantage of QB Jesse Scoggins running ability.

    You need to put the specific formations in - see the season 2 playbooks thread for examples.

    I'm not sure how sim it is to have 5 fleXbox One sets with that many other formations. Usually teams that run fleXbox One do so the vast majority of the time. Let me think about it and get back to you.

    I think part of the interesting thing about a team like Nebraska is that they have the elements of past option teams historically. They still run quite a bit of option, although a little more spread these days. I actually like the creative style, based on the historical base of Nebraska Football. How to pull of a bit of the current Nebraska spread attack and a bit of option from flex-bone is an intriguing thought to me. I think we should allow this. Although it's quite unorthodox, and though there are only a fistful of teams that I would even consider this close to sim for, Nebraska cannot possibly get the talent (through the ncaa game system) to run both at an unstoppable level. It could be effective, but I don't think I would consider it "cheesy".

    However because of the nature of the offenses, it COULD be cheesy. For example if Bucs were to switch qbs via Form Subs and run the fleXbox One out with that set for a couple plays per drive, that would be cheesy because there's no way of the D knowing who's in the game. However, IMO if he sticks with his primary qb OR switches qbs for entire drives and runs primarily one set or the other on a particular drive, that would be pretty sim, and still allow him to be creative.

    Just my 2 cents.

    California is running the same stuff as last year, but I have replaced the 3-3-5 Bear with 3-3-5 Stack. The Stack is a formation I am using as a run prevention formation primarily. I've taken the normal SS position on the line and replaced him with my best rushing LB so as not to have a cheesy formation. Also, I have subbed in 2 of my better run stuffers on the line. The Bear had too many people on the line, which allowed 6 of them to be blocked immediately if there was little stunting. Stanford and USC ate me up 2 of the 4 times I used the formation due to that very thing, as their Oline got hands on all my guys right away and it was TD time. The Stack has more of a 4 LB look which allows some flow downhill by my Lb's.

    I'm considering switching to the 3-4 for one or two seasons. My defensive line went from amazing to truly hurting. All four starters are gone. Just might test out the 3-4 vs Dru50 this week. Either way I'll make my final decision before the deadline.

    I don't think a PRO Style playbook should include that much fleXbox One.

    If your goal was to make a option playbook, there are alot of non-flex bone triple option formation. The thing I notice about the listed formations is there are several that are not really option formations. When crafting a sweet ass option playbook, I would not use Strong, weak, pro, or ace formations because they do not have triple options plays.

    My aim was not really an option playbook, as much it was a run heavy playbook,thats why I included the weak, pro, strong, etc. the reasoning behind including the fleXbox One formations was that it gave me the ability to get 2-3 RB's on the field at a time which I really liked. I honestly just grabbed a playbook and blew it up and started from scratch, it started out as pro though so thats what I listed. I guess it would be more multiple, but if Dru50 deems it "too much multiple", I will gladly scale back on some things.

    I would like you to limit yourself to no more than 2 fleXbox One formations. Aside from that it's fine.

    The buckeyes may lab a bit with custom offense to generate a more spread system with all the speed asu the receiver position.

    Defense will be the same custom look as last year.

    3-4 is not my style.

    Pro Style and 4-3. Final answer.

    Keep being lost brother. One week is all I want. Then you can figure it out. I need a big win.

    I spent nearly the entire NCAA 2011 game cycle getting adjusted from the 4-3 to the 3-4. It's a very different defense, and if you don't have the front 7 to run it you can have big problems.
