I agree with Sprint
The use of a fullback, big tight-end, H-back in the backfield, or 2-3 blocking tight ends (aka "heavy package") is underused in the IL.

Also, QBs taking the snap under center, and the off-side interior linemen looping around to push the ballcarrier forward--something that was not allowed until recent rule changes.

Not every team has the personnel to run a consistent grinding running game. But using these schemes can be effective as a change of pace, or to run out the clock. With the new OT rules, having these skills in the playbook is essential.

Finally, it takes a coaching and player commitment to establish and dominate the line of scrimmage.

Someone asked Nathan Bedford Forrest the key to his great success as a cavalry general and he replied:

"You gits there fustest with the mostest"

A running game will not be successful unless it consistently outmans and overpowers the point of attack. Not complicated, but not easy. "Agile, Hostile and Mobile" beats weightlifting telephone poles every time.
