Tech task: stopping ‘The Pistol’
Honed by head coach Chris Ault — he’s considered the “guru” of the system — the formation mixes up draw plays, misdirection and options. When the team elects to pass, it is invariably distinguished by well-disguised play-action and quick-timing routes.
“They do a great job with that offense and it’s something that we definitely are going to have to stop,” said head coach Derek Dooley of the Bulldogs. “They’ve definitely got the guys to run that offense.”
Two of those guys are freshman quarterback Colin Kaepernick and junior running back Luke Lippincott.
