Coach Brian Kelly has a said again and again that the emphasis is on defense. But his offensive style is just as important as well. He has a versatile spread offense that is very complicated. So this year, expect it to be more understood and better executed by the players, especially quarterback Dayne Crist.
Here’s what Brian Kelly said in a press conference Tuesday.
“I think it’s knowledge of what you’re capable of doing more so than having more plays available to you. Knowing that these are plays that Dayne has executed very well over the past year, we can go back and look at the successes that he’s had in reading out a particular play or getting us in the right play.” via Associated Press
Dayne Crist is a smart quarterback. But it takes time for him to adjust to a different offense then what he’s used to. He is learning the best he can and will display his knowledge on Saturday. I can;t wait to see how he fares against a very strong South Florida defense.
What do you think? Is Dayne Crist ready or has Brian Kelly failed to do his job as a coach? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
