"If you look at the stats, in two plays they made 30 yards running the same play," Reese said.
The way it works is that the offensive line sets up as if they are zone blocking, and the running back lines up in an off-set I formation. The direction of the run is not called; it's entirely predicated on what the running back sees.
"(The Frog Draw) is just like option football," Reese said. "You have to know how to react to it."
But the play's effectiveness has as much to do with the lineman's stance, which is angled toward the right-hand side of the field, causing defenders to shoot through the wrong gaps.
"In the first part of the game they were doing things different," Reese said. "We adjusted, and in the second and third quarters they gained about 30 yards."
Here are Oklahoma RB Quentin Griffin's rushing totals against Texas per quarter.
CARRIES: 9 in the first; 3 in the second; 7 in the third; 13 in the fourth
YARDS: 117 in the first; 7 in the second; 22 in the third; 102 in the fourth
And what about that fourth quarter? Head Coach Mack Brown said the defense was tired because the offense left it on the field too long. Reese said his unit needed to run more.
"In the fourth quarter, they outran us," Reese said. "As a defensive coordinator, what I should have done is played zero coverage (in the fourth quarter) and blitz because that gets your kids running more."
So, does Kansas State run the Frog Draw?
"They havent," Reese said, "but were practicing on it."
