Classic triple option offense
The big difference between what Auburn runs and GT seems to be the use of a slot receiver and the consistent threat of a counter especially with a jet sweep. GT offense forces a defense to maintain good spacing on the playside while Auburn forces teams to maintain good leverage across the line of scrimmage. Conceptually there appears to be more similarities this year then differences. Against both offenses, the ability to set the edge and take on blocks is critical. Both offense big play ability are dependent on the arc of the play. If the runner or pulling guard are forced to have a wider arc. The play success drops significantly, against either option the best defense play may not be the one on the bottom of the pile but the guy who widen the arc.
When I watch GT or Auburn attack, two things really stand out to me. One is the play of the Playside End, does he maintain good leverage or go up field. If the playside DE is able to maintain good leverage and control the tackle, the arc is wide giving the rest of the defense a huge advantage when they flow to the ball. The other key is the play of the 1-T, if he loses ground to the combo block and allows the guard to peel to the LB giving either team easy yards up the middle. Correct spacing becomes an issue.
