It was interesting with Martinez last year, as he needed to avoid injury. They started using him in the run game more towards the end of the year, and it really helped us gain some momentum. I've showed this clip before but here is an example of our QB being the "power" part of our run game.Let's start on offense by not running OOB.
There are a ton of variations off that, where you could bring in your "power" back and have him be the hammer and Martinez read the edge. While this concept isn't different from Oregon, it is a way to incorporate the power/speed combo. We just aren't beating people up like we did at Nebraska in the 90s for 50% of the game. We are making them tired tho!
