Question: in an early season game against a foe such as Navy, Syracuse, Air Force, etc., how much do we "open our kimono" to our Patriot League opponents?

There's plenty of time to switch up our O before league games start, I wouldn't worry about that. Our game plans have changed in the past and I would guess this is all part of the strategy of the long season.

I have to agree with The Future on one thing. Why not use the hurry up offense once in a while to confuse the opponent? It wouldn't hurt to change the pace of things. Also I don't like the long count we were using vs. Navy. Gives them much too much time to settle into their defensive schemes. Would much rather see a quick count - keep the D off balance.

It seemed like we were using long counts before the snap frequently. Was that meant to draw the defense offsides? Didn't seem effective (but the coaches know more than I ever will). Also, where was Afriyie after the first few minutes? Was he hurt? He seems to be quite an athlete.
