We have tried to find players to fit our scheme , is there a scheme these OL would be better at?

Bottom Line, unless you are the Best coach ever (BB), with the Best QB ever (TB), you are going to have a hard time staying up, if you don't adjust. A Team running one of the offenses, with a mobile QB, has been in the SB, every year since...“I’m not wanting to offend anybody, but college football, offensively, has gotten to be really, really bad fundamentally,” Cable said Tuesday on 710 ESPN in Seattle. “Unfortunately, I think we’re doing a huge disservice to offensive football players, other than a receiver, that come out of these spread systems. “The runners aren’t as good. They aren’t taught how to run. The blockers aren’t as good. The quarterbacks aren’t as good. They don’t know how to read coverage and throw progressions. They have no idea.”
There are a broad range of offenses using spread principles at the college level and the teams employing them are making those decisions based on what they think will win them games. That may not match up with what Cable or other coaches are looking for, but we’ve seen teams adapt by installing some of those elements in their own playbooks. Without any developmental or minor league in place, that’s going to have to continue as long as those schemes remain in vogue at schools around the country.
Funny you say that, bc, two seasons ago, my boys were getting killed in the backfield on pass plays. I'm a D coach for teens, but man we had to say something to the OL coach. We told him to just have the guys fake block and fall down...clogging up the line. Worked like a charm.maybe they can all hug each other and reduce the gaps for the defenders
It's a combination.We need better talent.
