    Balanced playbook suggestions?

    I'm looking for a new playbook this year in one of my OD's and would like something with a fairly even mix of singleback, I-Form and shotgun sets. I've got a stable of talented backs and 4 good WR's and would like to be able to mix it up.

    I've looked at UCF's playbook (which is my current leader in the clubhouse) but wanted to see what some others might recommend.

    Thanks guys!

    UCF is a good book, but Boise is my new favorite. They have a number of ace 2 and 3 wr sets, three I-form, one weak, 2 strong, and a half dozen shotgun sets, including a five wide. Lots to choose from.

    Kansas- pretty much 1/3 single-back 1/3 I-form 1/3 shotgun

    LSU- balanced play book with a sweet HB dive play from shotgun

    Fresno State- (Has wildcat)

    Boise State- balanced and has the trick plays

    I like Penn State.

    It's all singleback, I, and shotgun.

    Not a whole lot of tricky stuff, but quality plays.

    i'm a fan of Oklahoma. Ace, I-Form and Shotgun but tons of different looks in each.

    Penn State if you like using the 5 WR sets.

    Arkansas if you don't plan on using 5 WR.

    I'd help you but you could be using this playbook against me so i'll let you handle this one on your own (y)

    Ive been using Penn States its way solid with a nice mix of a little bit of everything. I recently switched to Bama's playbook. Most people think its just a single back but its got tons of pre-determined motions that start as a 1 back and go to a FB/RB set up. Still some I and Shotgun in their of course, its a top playbook for a top team.

    The Bama book is wicked good. I love it. It is a H-back fan's dream

    I just started using this and I must say it is my favorite so far. The route combinations in here are the best ive seen. Im a run first kind of offense and its got plenty of single back, a bunch of I-formation, and 2 pistol which is kinda nice. Ive found the HB dive play from shotgun and its good to go because it mimics the HB read play. Its also has a bunch of "LSU" specific plays which i love. The "LSU screen" play which is prolly the best screen play ive seen so far.

    i love the multiple playbook..... if u want to run it down their throat it has some formations that are so stacked the defense really has to dig deep to stop it. if u wanna pass it... it has an amazing array of shot gun formations
