College Football Handicapping: Mendendall wants Virginia to pick up pace

08.18.2016     08:27 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Virginia Cavaliers mark another team attempting to play up-tempo with a first-year head coach. Bronco Mendenhall says he wants the offense to "get with the times" and play as fast as possible. This of course will be a significant departure from former head coach Mike London's system. Virginia's offense actually showed flashes of competence last year as it quietly ranked fifth in ACC play in scoring (27.1 ppg) and total offense (400 ypg). However, on a national level, the Cavs ranked 76th at 5.49 yards per play. 

“We train during practice based on the fastest teams in the country,” Mendenhall said. “Our practices are based on who is the very fastest in college football, what is their time between plays. And we mirror that.”

“Basically after a play’s dead, you’ve got to line back up, look at the signal, see what the play is, and get ready and be ready to go,” Eldridge said. “That’s the hardest part, transitioning, because you don’t have time to relax. Even if you make a big play downfield you have to come back to the line of scrimmage and be ready to go again.”
