The 4 main schools of spread offense

I name them and describe them over at Football Study Hall.


  1. So....biggest difference between 'pro-style spread' and true 'pro-style' is not use of Y & H spots....but spread style one-player reads vs. reading the whole field?

    So....what is Bobby Petrino/Jeff Brohm's offense?

    1. I'm using "pro-style spread" to describe teams that run primarily spread formations and utilize tempo.

      So Petrino and Brohm I'd just call pro-style teams that mix in some spread formations from time to time. They still use bigger bodies at H and Y a lot rather than trying to beat people with spacing.
