Yesterday, me and some fellow coaches were talking about Tennessee's inability to run the ball effectively. The coaches I was speaking with attended UT's coaching clinic and said that they teach their lineman to take a step back to square up with the defender before engaging. So instead of firing off of the ball, our guys are taking a step back to sell pass then engaging. This doesn't make sense to me. I understand that a majority of our run plays are zone blocking schemes but they should be taking a bucket step if anything. Thoughts?
Oh lord please tell me this is not true.
That's what I'm saying.
This would support what I said recently in another thread. We are not explosive on the OL. Bad if true(also stupid since stupid can be defined as doing something wrong over and over and expecting a different result).

I did not think the run blocking was That bad Saturday. They ran the ball OK for Florida having such a stout front seven. I was a little puzzled that - when UT was down by 7 late - they abandoned the run altogether. I think FWIW, that they should have ran a llittle more at that point to set up play-action. Also -- Patterson and Hunter dropped some balls that they should have caught that could have changed the direction of the game - particularly the long one to Patterson. The defense also has to communicate better. Too many busted plays resulting in long gains. I still think that UT can beat USCe, but Bama would take a miracle and UT would have to play much better in all phases to beat GA on the road. Not sure about MSU.
