A case for the Pistol in 2014

We’ve talked about the Pistol offense at times in the past, and today we’re going to take a closer look. Why? Because I feel like the Hokies should strongly consider running a lot more Pistol this season than they have in the past.


An imperfect match: Michael Brewer and Tech’s running backs

It’s hard to determine the last time Michael Brewer took a snap from under center. He played for a pure shotgun offense at Texas Tech, and he played for a pure shotgun offense in high school. What most analysts barely touch is that it’s not easy to make the transition from a shotgun offense to an offense that requires the quarterback to take a lot of snaps from under center.
