WR Freddy Canteen Newest Grad Addition


Recommended Posts

Come to think about it. We knew Al Borges was in South Bend visiting. I bet they talked about Canteen.

 

Now Canteen reminds me of getting Amir Carlisle from USC a few years back. Helps our depth at Slot. Finke and Canteen have a backup spot on the two deep to compete for it would seem. He's about Stepherson's size too so He could get to X receiver as well.

 

One thing I've noticed in Studying Memphis is they spread people out but also used "bunches" Bunches are receivers lined up close to each other.

 

Reason you do that is the DB can't line up directly across from a guy who is behind another receiver!

 

So say we detach a big Tight End and then "hide" a Sanders, Stepherson or Canteen behind that Tight end. If we want to get the ball to the small receiver with a blocker quick we can do that. If we want the Tight End To Go deep and the guy behind to stay short like a check down we do that. Also all the pick routes where A receiver gets in the way of the other guys defender are possible.

 

So I like having all types of receivers, Tall, Average, Shorter and skillsets that differ as well.

Yeah I agree that this feels similar to the Carlisle transfer a few years back. Gives us some depth and will compete for the 4th or 5th spot I think.

As long as it is not the same pick play we ran vs Florida St that the hometown refs called that cost us the win. LOL

 

 

Yeah we needed to run that better too. Its all the same play but our "pick" could have been done without extended arms and then run the route away from the guy you picked.

 

Clemson Guy did a cool acting job where he fell into the Bama player.

 

One of those plays where I wish the refs would go one way or the other, either call them all penalties or let them all go.

 

Othewise its who tricks the refs eyes the best who get away with it.
