The Arkansas Razorbacks are planning a similar ploy to exploit the talents of a passing quarterback (Ryan Sorahan) and a running QB (Matt Jones). Jones occasionally will line up as a wide receiver in an attempt to exploit his height (6-6) and speed (4.4).
If Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer were so inclined, he could top both Kentucky and Arkansas. The Vol skipper could put FOUR quarterbacks on the field at once. Casey Clausen would line up behind center, with three converted QBs -- James Banks, Chris Hannon, C.J. Fayton -- at the receiver spots.
The flea-flicker possibilities would be endless.
Imagine: Clausen takes the snap and hands off to Banks, who is coming horizontally across the field on an apparent reverse. Banks then laterals to Hannon on a double-reverse. Hannon then pulls up and lobs to Fayton, who by this time would be standing all alone in the end zone.
Hey, it just might work.
