I'm the managing editor of Tomahawk Nation, the Florida State wing of SBnation.
The Noles are averging well over 200 rushing yards per game despite having the youngest (no starters over 19 years old) and one of the lightest offensive lines in college football. We are fully immersed in the zone scheme with the light, athletic linemen.
When I think zone scheme with light linemen, I think Denver Broncos. I'm hoping that someone here would be willing to do a mini Q&A this week.
We are facing BC Saturday Night at 8 Eastern on ESPN. They feature 2 defensive tackles that go 6'4 325 and 6'4 345. Those are big NFL DT's, but they are monsters in College.
In thinking about this challenge I thought about those Baltimore Raven teams with Sirigusa and Sam Adams. Would anyone care to describe how the Broncos did against this group or any similar team that featured any huge defentive tackles? What adjustments, if any, did/ does the Denver offense make when facing 2 slow big huge DT's within their zone scheme? Does this personnel set cause the zone scheme trouble?
If it is of any help, BC's DE's and LB's are very slow.
Thanks in advance,
