The Mythical 4 Verticals

If you're an option coach sitting through yet another clinic lecture by some flexbone coach, you are likely to hear the following exchange:

Attendee:  "Coach, why the flexbone?  Why not split backs or the 'I'??"

Clinic Dude:  "Why...  so I can spread the defense and make them defend four verticals, of course."

Attendee:  "Uh, Coach...  how many times have you successfully ran four verticals?"

Clinic Dude:  "Anyone have any more questions out there??"


Well, I finally found a clip of a good flexbone team running 4 verts(from GSU's first Natl. Championship game, no less)... a quarter roll left while looking off the Safety then hitting the right wing...  Nice.
