Sunday Scheme — Looking at a very bad play on offense and a very good play on defense

NCAA Football: Baylor at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

A Very Bad Offensive Day

Considering the opponent, Baylor’s offensive performance against West Virginia was one of the worst offensive performances in recent memory. Baylor had 7 points with less than 2 minutes left. The only ones that come close were against TCU and then in the Big 12 championship game, both with very injured/limited Charlie Brewer.

Unfortunately, it looks like limited Brewer has continued into 2020. I take a look at an average offensive snap from yesterday and discuss how its emblematic of the struggles Baylor is having on offense right now.

But a Tremendous Defensive Performance

As bad as Baylor was offensively yesterday, they may have been equally as good on defense, especially when you consider how many guys from their two deep they were missing.

The basis of Aranda’s defenses are really flexible linebackers who make it really hard for opposing quarterbacks to know what’s coming before the snap. That was the proximate cause behind Terrel Bernard’s incredible interception yesterday.
