    No one's asking you to give away your goodies, but I think we should probably know a little bit about how the other guys play, since we don't exactly have game film on each other. I'll start:

    I run a lot of big sets, and a lot of two back stuff. I run most of my stuff with either two TE or two backs, and many times I do both (lots of single WR, 2 back, 2 TE stuff, and I even run some 3 TE sets like Jumbo and Jumbo Z). I'm kind of mimicking the Stanford stuff I have seen this year - downhill running and short passing with the occasional PA toss over the top.

    I run very little shotgun - I have some three and four wide sets because they come in handy, but I stay under center most of the time.

    I'm going to be a little thin at TE next year, so I may dump the three TE sets next year and lean towards the 2 and 3 WR sets, since I'll be loaded at the skill positions, and my QB will hopefully be in the low 90s with a cannon for an arm. He might be the slowest guy in the game, though, so if I spread it out a bit, he ain't running the read or anything like that.

    That's about it. Pretty vanilla offense, but it has a lot of options.

    I am in ace sets or some form of offset gun for 98% of my plays. I'm running a west coast style of offense, lots of crossing and horizontal stretch plays.

    The Arizona Wildcats run a Pro Style offense that focuses on establishing the run and utilizing a West Coast passing style. We'll pass on 2ND and 1 and run on 3RD and 7. A lot of 2-back sets from under center and shotgun. Love to spread the ball between the HB, FB, and TE. You'll also see a fair amount of play action, screen passes, and calculated deep throws designed to keep the opposing defense honest and off-balanced.

    I just wish the slip screens still worked. I miss those. You can hit a few from the gun, but under center, it's just a sack.

    Some from under center work better than others. I've tried my best to find the ones that allow me to control the QB as quickly as possible, so that I can drop him back (without making it too obvious) and get the throw off in time. With a less than stellar connection between a user, however, it can become a little bit harder.
