ULM's Confounding 2 QB Offense

Of all the things our defense did poorly last night worthy of ridicule, their reaction-- outright confusion-- to the 2 QB offense ULM ran out there in the second quarter should not be included on the list. I said in the GDT at the time and I still believe, that from the press box and the video feed it was easy enough to see what they were going to do. One QB (Kolton Browning) was left-handed and could throw running to his left. The other (Cody Wells) was right-handed and could throw running to his right. Putting both in the backfield at the same time gave an entirely new wrinkle to the traditional play action for which our defense couldn't account. And I can't blame them at all for that because nobody had ever seen it from ULM before. I said after the game that I was utterly petrified that they would go back to running it late in the game, and to be completely honest, I have no idea why they didn't.

Jason Kirk from the mothership seems to agree about the uniqueness of the package in an update about it this morning complete with a video of the 2 QB sequence. Chip Brown (who we talked about the other day with respect to the 3-3-5 defense) says it's not the first time he's seen it because Purdue used to do something similar. You'll have to forgive me for not watching more Purdue football in the past. Watch the video from SB Nation below the jump and tell me what you think. How could we have done a better job against that look?

Also, do you think we could pull something like that with Florence and Petty? Both run pretty well...
