Coaches in the SEC are working overtime to try and come up with schemes and ways to beat out Nick Saban and Alabama for the SEC title. On the August 17 Quick Kicks Podcast, Chuck Zodda and Mark Schofield look at two SEC offenses, Kentucky and Auburn, and some of their most-used plays and schemes. Kentucky, coming off back-to-back 5-7 seasons, will have experience at some key positions on the offense, especially along the offensive line, which should help the inside-zone blocking schemes they love to run. Auburn, coming off some disappointing seasons, hopes to rebound with Gus Malzahn and his run/pass option-heavy offense. Other topics include:
- The different ways Kentucky blocks inside-zone-run plays (3:47)
- How the o-linemen communicate assignments on the zone-block schemes (7:32)
- Auburn and how they use the buck sweep to attack the edges in the run game (10:25)
- Where and when Auburn runs the buck sweep and the personnel they use (11:29)
- Gus Malzahn as an architect of the pre/post snap RPO (15:35)
