Is it by design, or do our ends refuse to do as they are coached when they consistently seem to crash in along the line of scrimmage with their heads down at the snap? Several times in the NCSU game it seemed that McNeil almost paralleled the line of scrimmage as the ball was snapped. The Wolfpack's frequent "answer" (and in this game without a "read") was to blow around him wide. UNC did this to us too, consistently for big gains, and I don't even want to mention Georgia Tech. I could understand this "approach" somewhat if a linebacker appeared anywhere in position to cover the area vacated as our end crashed but, up to now, that does not seem to be the case. The case seems to be that an opponent's untalented back is guaranteed about four yards for not fumbling and the sky is the limit for a runner with speed and one or two blockers.
Bad scheme, bad assignment fulfillment, both, something else, or am I suffering from a delusion?
