The Hurricanes want to establish an identity of being tough and physical up front. This is exactly the mantra displayed on this running play to Thad Franklin. When you have a left guard and tight end coming across the formation like surgically timed wrecking balls, you see the offense constructing themselves the advantage. You also see a very efficient prerogative by the offensive line to maintain balance and get to the second level.
I have the upmost confidence declaring the running game will stock up in the Mario era. Oregon ran the ball for 202.3 yards a game last year which was good for fourth overall in conference. The Miami Hurricanes were third last in the Athletic Coast Conference with only 127.6 yards a game. There was much needed room for improvement running the rock.
Josh Gattis took his 2021 Broyles Award for being the nation’s top assistant coach and introduced himself to the Hurricane fan faithful. This offense is going to operate much differently from a year ago. Idealistically Gattis and company will align with power run concepts
mixed with a multi-formational premise to isolate and attract a mismatch.
