NCAA Football 12 News Post


Over the next few weeks, EA Sports will show 25 new plays that you will find in NCAA Football 12.

New offensive plays will be shown every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while a new defensive play every Tuesday and Thursday. Each new play will be accompanied by a screen of the play art and a brief description of why the play has been added to NCAA Football 12.

Play #23 features the Mizzou Jet.

Quote:
"Shotgun Trips Unbalanced Mizzou Jet is a new addition to the Tigers high flying spread offense. The formation calls for the tight end to align on the line of scrimmage and places the split end on the left off the line of scrimmage. With three spread receivers combined with the halfback in the backfield, Missouri can get four blockers at the point of attack on the jet sweep."

in this formation, the left tackle is an eligible receiver. or is that where they mean the te is?

also, the inside wr on the trips side is covered up, and therefore is not eligible. they have him going down field like he's faking a pass route. if they have other plays from this formation, and have him running routes on passing downs, that's a penalty.

someone correct me if i'm wrong.

every time i have seen missouri play when they have used this type of run they have had dash aka "inverted veer" blocking for this play thus making the qb a threat in this play as well

Do a lot of college teams run these WR jet sweeps?


I just don't see this happening...


I think they put this in to cover the fact that they don't have end arounds and reverses in the game.

First play should look familiar. From just a couple years ago.

Totally a guess, but I think the TE is the inside receiver on the trips side. Covering the TE isn't that out of the ordinary. It would still allow 3 route combos to the trips side with the back out and having the TE pass protect. Totally a guess.

There were a fair number of formations in NCAA '11 (and in real life) that had an uncovered tackle on one side and a covered receiver or TE on the other side.

i think the LT is in fact the TE, since who ever described the play calls it unbalanced. they probably should not have used a O-line character for him. as for the rest, it probably is a primary run formation, since that inside receiver is covered. if not, they probably run some bubble screens or such where that inside guy loops into the backfield at the snap.

bama did/does. seemed like they ran at least one wr sweep a game last season.

didn't mean to sound like the formation was illegal. it's perfectly legal. couple points, though (which will also address some other posts):

knew this. which is why i asked if the te was in the lt spot. but he's not going down field in a fake pass route, and the covered split end is. which, on this particular play, is fine since it is a run play and he can be up field. but it also leads me to believe that if it were a pass, he would run a route, which would be illegal.

this is correct. only thing, as stated above, they have him faking a route on this play. leading me to believe if there are pass plays, he would be 'eligible' in the game. which would not be correct.

i seriously hope this isn't the only play in this formation. if so, it will be infinitely easy to defend.

i could see them tinkering with another formation, though. but they need at least 1 pass play to go along with this. otherwise it will be easily recognizable and easy to defend.

even if it is play action sweep with a 1-2 man route with a fly and a hook by the 2 eligible wr's on trips side. with the sweeping wr as the flats outlet.

provided p/a works, of course.
