we ran a formation like this in high school we called it the jumbo wishbone since we did not have a wr in the formation. Its not a new formation its one of the oldest ones in the book.

When I saw the formation, was shocked ... and pleasantly suprised.

It gives something else for Auburn to think about and spend time working on.

We have a bunch of backs and just gives our offense more options.

Great move by Gregory.

Go BULLS !!!

Lou Holtz employed this three back set for the Irish in the early 90s.  It was tremendously successful in the redzone.  Thats pretty much the only time he used it or for 4th and 1s.  The Irish had Jerome Bettis, Rodney Culver, and Tony Brooks in the same backfield with Rick Mirer one year.  All went on to play in the pros, along with a few of their linemen.  Hopefully the Bulls have the same level of success the Irish had.  If any of you are closet Gator fans, you'll remember the '93 Sugar Bowl (aka The Cheerios Bowl) when Bettis literally ran all over them.  It was all with the three back set.  Maybe Ford can be our Bettis!

F-350

Nice!!

It was the first thing that popped in my head.  Guess you could use the same idea for single and two-back sets as well (F-150/F-250).  What can I say, I'm a Ford Truck man!
