Remember my post about how much I like Mike Martz' mad scientist style of football? Bob Stoops at Oklahoma is kind of like that. He airs it out. He calls trick plays. They don't always work, but they often do, and it makes things exciting. I think it energizes players, too, to practice such plays and then have them called. It's one thing to practice a play for desperation. It's another thing to practice a play that you know has been called in cool situations.

(By the way, Matt McCoy, who threw the lateral mentioned in the article, goes to our church. It's a fun connection. Matt had an interception a couple of weeks ago, too.)
