Seattle Seahawks and Auburn Tigers: Game recognize game

Last night the Seahawks ran a play that looked really similar to something we’ve seen. The Auburn Tigers posted this to remind everyone where the read option pass play came from.

Following the game, Pete Carroll acknowledged the origin of the play.

“We’ll go anywhere to find a play,” the Seattle coach said afterward. “And that one-uh, Muschamp at Florida, no … Auburn. They ran it. Give Gus Malzahn credit. That’s a great play. I kept telling them [the offensive staff and players] this summer, ‘It’ll work, it’ll work.’ But it didn’t work all summer.”

Great play. Surprised that it’s taken this long for teams to full embrace plays that succeed in the college game.
