Is this one big setup?

We all know Kiffin is the most polarizing coach in major CFB, but is he also the smartest? Its been a fairly frustrating season but its impossible to ignore that some of this is intentional. The approach seems like it is to "do just enough" to to save his players, and avoid giving away the identity of this team. Until now. (Yes it bit us in the ass at Stanford)

We've seen games where screens and hitches dominated, one with a commitment to running the ball, the typical Barkley and co playbook, and even one where they let the defense win it. Like all of us, how can an opponent know what USC they are going to see that week? It's no secret what players deserve attention, and where the weak spots are (LT) but this erratic play calling may be much more a part of an approach to a season than to a game. A first half / second half mentality...and here we are.

It was hard to not feel like Colorado was a tune up for the real offense (no huddle) and if we got another shot at Stanford it'd be a completely different game. Arizona is a good team, but it'll be much more of a preparation game for the defense and what lies ahead (and goes Quack) than it will for the O. I wouldn't be surprised to see some trick play calling, conservative passing, and another run dominated game. And assuming it all goes well...open it all up Nov. 3rd.

And maybe, maybe this is all part of Kiffin's master plan and he's out smarted us all............or not.
