My Thoughts on the "Spread HD"

We have all been wondering this off season what the "Spread HD" will look like, what is the concept behind it, and what impact will it have on PSU's offense. Then we get word from Jaybama that it is a "glorified wishbone".

Frankly this scares the excrement out of me. Think of it this way, where has Jay gotten his idea for this offense? I would love to see him write his historiography of the "Spread HD". Is it his old high school playbook? Because high school and low-end college is about the only places I know of that still run the wishbone. Who has he spoken with that has helped him develop this offense? I don't know if any of you have attempted to design your own playbook, but it is hard to do, I am in the middle of developing a basic high school run based offense for future use and it isn't easy. While I don't proclaim to be smarter or a better coach than Jaybama I am still concerned about the kinks that would have to be worked out of this playbook.

On the other hand Urban Meyer is running an old school offense in the single wing, out of the gun and tearing people up with it. So can it work? Obviously it can, but I have to believe that Meyer is just a hair better at Xs and Os than our very own Jaybama. Plus Meyer has been running his offense for the better part of a decade now, dating back to his Bowling Green days. I hope I am wrong on the "Spread HD" but I really have a feeling it is going to look more like a "Spread Analog".
