Urban Meyer Spread Explained

  1. 1. Urban Meyer’s Utah Spread Offense
  2. 2. Please Read Each play in this presentation was taken from actual game footage from the 2003 and 2004 seasons and recreated as diagramed images. Each play is merely my interpretation of the actual play and therefore the actual images contained in this presentation are not stated to be actual plays from the Utah System. These plays are consistent with plays ran from the tapes and all blocking assignments and pass routes are accurate. The images contained in this presentation have been submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office as copyrighted visual arts documents. Any attempt to duplicate these images will be in direct violation of U.S. Copyright protection laws. ©

  4. 4. Explanation of System The verbiage used in this presentation has been created using some actual terms and position symbols used in the Utah system. Other terms and/or symbols are those which have been compiled by research of other high school programs who run a spread oriented offense. Information on the following pages will serve as a reference to better understand the diagrams of this presentation.
  5. 5. Formations Solo Trey Solo Trio Thunder Trigger Trick Thunder
  6. 6. Formations Empty Pro I Ace Twins I Over Wing-Slot Wing-slot Bunch Doubles
  7. 7. = Motion = Pitch or Pass = Key or Read on Option, Pass, or Blocking Assignment = Ball Carrier or Potential Carrier = Drop Step for Option Relationship = Set up to Throw after Fake or Boot
  8. 8. Player Personnel E J X Z R Utah’s Player Personnel Symbols H Z X Y F Player Personnel Symbols with Regard to the Remainder of Presentation
  9. 9. Motion Types <ul><li>Across – motion from one side of the formation to the other </li></ul><ul><li>Back – motion back into a running back or pitch position </li></ul><ul><li>Test – motion across until the plane of the center is broken and then back again to starting position, used to detect coverage </li></ul><ul><li>Jet – motion across ¾ to full speed either directly in front of or behind QB depending on whether in shotgun or under center, will either fake or take handoff. </li></ul><ul><li>Right/Left – motion for back to leave back field either right or left </li></ul><ul><li>In – motion in towards formation without going across </li></ul>Motion will be tagged at the end of the play preceded by the personnel symbol of the player who will be going into motion. The player will maintain his route after motion. (ex. Solo 9827 Z across)
  10. 10. Route Determination When calling routes for pass plays a number tree will be used. The number tree consists of (10) different numbers which represent a given route. When a pass play is called, it will be in a form of (3) to (5) numbers. All numbers will be read from left to right and be designated to each eligible non-back field receiver. If a route is desired for a back field receiver it will be tagged at the end of the route sequence, which he will carryout to the side which he is positioned. If back is not in the back field then he will receive a number in sequence depending on his position in the formation. (ex. Solo 6556 F Flare) ( ex. Empty R 92298) Call routes will be used to place routes which are not included in the number tree into a pass pattern. These routes will be tagged at the beginning of the numbers sequence and the number sequence will contain (1) less number. If two receivers are to run call routes then both tags will be called before the numbers sequence. If two are to run the same route then the symbols of each will be called together and then the route will be named. (ex. Solo Z shallow 579) (ex. Empty Z shallow H Choice 868) (ex. Empty Z H Shallow 878)

  24. 24. The Utah Run Game The running game is one of the strongest points of any Spread offense. The principal behind the Spread is to spread the field both vertically and horizontally. Buy doing this you force the defense to also spread out their personnel which causes their players to have to defend more space. Having to occupy and control added space helps to equalize talent levels. Over the next few pages I will go over the basic run plays in the Utah offense. I will break each play down and show blocking assignments against basic fronts.
