The Gator coaches, and Urban Meyer in particular, have vented all week about how the new clock rules have robbed the team of plays. Running backs coach Kenny Carter revealed yesterday that they are planning to do something about it this weekend.
I’d love to tell you about it, but Carter is being very cryptic about it: “It’s something we call in the military a Wait 1.” Or Weight 1, depending on how you want to interpret it. I’m guessing it’s Wait 1, since “wait” refers to time and time is the problem at hand. Carter is a Citadel grad, so that’s where the military reference comes from.
Could it be some new hurry-up offense? Well, it’ll have to be because there’s no other way to stop the clock effectively thanks to the change in the first down and out of bounds rules. We’ll see, but I hope they don’t go messing with things too much. I don’t think I can take another week of people whining about the offense not being what it was last year.
