    Question on playbooks (I'm desperate)

    Yes, I'm desperate. I just had a question on what you guys think of these two playbooks. Obviously, I wouldn't switch until next year. I'm looking to getting back to my roots of running the ball more to set up the run, which is where I was able to win most of my games in the past versions.

    Syracuse

    Syracuse
    Ace - Big
    Ace - Bunch
    Ace - Slot Flex
    Ace - Tight Slots
    Ace - Twin TE Slot
    Ace - Y-Trips
    I-Form - Normal
    I-Form - Tight
    I-Form - Twins
    Shotgun - Empty H Wide
    Shotgun - Normal HB Wk
    Shotgun - Split Offset
    Shotgun - Spread
    Shotgun - Tight
    Shotgun - Trey Open
    Shotgun - Wildcat
    Shotgun - Wing Trio Wk
    Strong I - Close
    Strong I - Slot
    Weak I - Normal

    Virginia Tech
    Ace - Big
    Ace - Big Twins
    Ace - Slot Flex
    Ace - Twin TE
    Ace - Twin TE Flex
    Ace - Y-Trips
    I-Form - Normal
    I-Form - Tight
    I-Form - Twins Flex
    Shotgun - Double Flex
    Shotgun - Normal Flex Wk
    Shotgun - Split
    SHotgun - Split Y-Flex
    SHotgun - Trio HB Wk
    Shotgun - Wildcat
    Shotgun - Y-Trips HB Wk
    Strong I - Normal
    Weak I - Twins Flex

    The main reason I am leaning towards Syracuse is because they have one formation that has 5-wide.

    I'm just curious to your opinions.

    I really like the Pitt playbook Ryno left me with. Syracus's looks good to though.

    yea i've played a few exhibition games with the Syracuse offense (I just sim the defense), and it's pretty fun. The running plays are nice, but what I like most is they have some very good passing plays.

    In all seriousness, the Syracuse playbook is pretty awesome, but the five wide set isn't very good, IMO. One of the splits is your HB.

    It keeps a HB in the formation in all of them I think.

    I think I've heard Rutgers is also a really good playbook. You may want to look at the generic one back book as well. I'm all spread all day (no homo) so I'm not much help with these books. I told you you probably wouldn't like the Mid Tenn St book. The Air Raid is no joke.

    I think playbooks really come down to your personnel... are your tight ends good..? the hokie playbook has 4 2 tight end sets... with about 15 passing plays for those sets that are actually usable.. if you have two solid tight ends you can keep defenses guessing by throwing out of the running sets.... if your Wrs are strong Syracuse might be the way to go....

    I think I'm going to with the Virginia Tech one. It's the one I'm most comfortable with, and I won my lone National Championship with it last season. I'm more of a ground and pound type of offense (that's what she said). Going to the spread was fun, but I'm not as comfortable with it like I am a run balanced playbook. I love using my tight ends because of the mismatches they create.
