The clip The Veer from We Are Marshall (2006)
I have learned in the last two weeks that it is not working.
So as of right now, the Power I goes in the trash...
...along with every flea-flicker, double reverse...
...and every other trick play that you may have in your playbook.
Get rid of it. Men, it is time to simplify. Ball.
So put our heads together here.
What is the simplest offense...
...that you have ever run and actually won a football game?
Any idea's a good idea. No right or wrong in here today, men, let's talk it out.
Well, there's always the Veer.
The Veer. That's interesting. Talk that out, Red.
Well, the Veer's an option offense. Spreads things out.
Takes the focus off any one man.
It's designed for teams that don't have a strong offensive line.
Now, that is us in a nutshell. Well, who runs it that we can talk to?
Bill Yeoman came up with it at Houston...
...but other than West Virginia, no one really runs it outside of Texas.
West Virginia runs the Veer?
Jack, that's crazy. We're rivals.
You think they'll invite us to lunch and hand over their playbook?
They don't have to take us out to lunch.
We'll pick some up on the way.
Morgantown. The Veer. I like it.
