No Huddle Time

I think we all knew this was coming when it was first announced that Beck got the OC gig and I'll be the first to admit that I've got mixed feelings about the move. Don't get me wrong, I had no love lost for Watson's inability to commit to the offense Bo wanted and knew from watching KU years ago what was in store.

But if there's one thing that has always made me want to throw my Sailor and Coke right through the bar's 60" LCD screen, it's watching KU/Misery/Okie St.'s QB step up into the gun, jab their hands at the center's ass for the 27th fake snap of the day and then look to the sideline to get the play. Gosh, I can't believe no one ever falls for that. It's as unexpected and exciting as being at the CWS with runners on 1st & 3rd and experiencing the thrill of seeing the pitcher fake a pickoff throw at both of them, For the 17th time that week. 

But it sounds like it's time to get used to it. Taylor Martinez informed the Husker media masses that NU is going no huddle. And that more than likely means we can expect plenty of the above as was common when Beck was at Kansas. Yes, I am now in the position of learning to wrap my arms around that which I mock.

But, please, Tim, I ask only ask that you do me one small kindness. No phalanx of coaches and scrubs flipping rows of oversized flash cards full of numbers, pictures and Hindu charm glyphs like that 40-something weasel Gundy has going on down in Stillwater. That behavior should stay strictly on the sidelines of coaches who spend 45 minutes holding up their wives up in Mastercuts as they agonize over which product gives the fullest body while still holding their follicles strong in the 4th quarter. There's limits to what I can take in year one of the Beck attack, and such silliness would just look wrong next to Bo.
