College Football Gambling: Rutgers adjusts to life as an up-tempo team

08.19.2016     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
In keeping with our recent theme of first-year head coaches looking to go up-tempo, we take a look at the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Chris Ash steps in after serving as co-DC at Ohio State. He brings with him 28-year-old OC Drew Mehringer from Houston. Mehringer's offense is referred to as the "power spread" as will feature more pace. Rutgers ranked 13th in Big Ten play in total offense (338.9 ypg) last season.

"There’s some nuances and mechanics that go with the tempo," Blazek said, "and we’re picking up where we left off in the spring. … I like where they’re at."

But he added, "We’ve got some things we’ve got to work on."

"It’s something we’ve had to adjust to [physically]," the redshirt junior said of the faster-paced offense, "but I think it helps us out. It helps keep the defense on their toes. They’re not able to set up and make as many subs as they want, [and] at the same time it helps us mentally. We can focus in on our IDs [of defensive personnel] and on the defense more.
