Mixing up the plays question.... So, I am new here and wanted to ask a question about mixing up the playcalling on offense. So, here is the general rules: (For reference) G.5.0 Mixing up the Playcalling: Varying your playcalling on both offense and defense is a requirement of sim play. On offense, be sure to show your opponent different formations and different plays out of each. Of course, exceptions on offense come from your playbook. If you are using Florida or Georgia Tech's playbooks, for example, the formations that are available are not very different. However, even in those playbooks, different looks are available and should be utilized. It is understandable (and acceptable) for a team that is down by a lot to become one dimensional, needing to throw the ball. By the same token, a team that is up by a lot is permitted to become one dimensional running the ball to keep the clock running. As long as the game is close, we expect all box scores to reflect a concerted effort at reasonable play calling. So, how many formations, and plays out of each formation would you say is acceptable? Obviously I think everyone is going to have a little different answer. Since I am new, I will explain what gameplan I used in my recent game that had my opponent a little bit uneasy. I would appreciate it if you guys would tell me if I am not mixing it up enough, and what you consider as enough "mixing it up". So, I was a team built for running, and thus built a gameplan around the run. I would say that I ran the ball 2-3 times for every throw. I used 5-6 different formations (I am saying that Single Back (ACE) - Big is one formation and Single Back (ACE) - Twin TE is a different formation), and 3-5 different plays from each formation. Now this was all in the first half. So, obviously that number would increase slightly in the second half. My opponent quit in the second quarter, score 28-0. Was I not "Mixing it up" enough? I really like pounding the rock with the new blocking in NCAA 11. And running plays are limited and will look similar in different formations. So, could the senior guys around here help me out? Thanks!
