Believe me - if LSU is running the triple option you can bet the house Mett won't be on the field. Only thing he might do (if he is on the field) is move from center to other side away from option. He is too slow for the college game to run. This could be LSU's way to the end zone more often in 2013. That would be nice.....

This. We have no business running the triple option. It's not something you just pick up on a whim, you have to be committed to it and have a QB who can make the right read. And obviously mobility helps. I can't see us using this, it makes no sense.

The only difference between the Triple option from under center and in the gun is who the QB reads. In the gun the read is the backside DE just like Zone read. The first read under center is the 1, 2 or 3 technique of the DT.
