Film Study: Ole Miss Defensive Preview

Breaking Down the Art of Confusion

Ole Miss is ready to play.

In this video, I look at a few ways that Ole Miss’ defense tries to create confusion. I’ll look at some of their coverage rotations and at their blitz package, and I’ll emphasize the importance of Bowers being sharp in his toughest mental test to date. I also show how Beau Baldwin might try to attack their blitzes by using formations to thin out the reduced number of coverage defenders that are left when they bring pressure. In this way, he can create space for our receivers with the hope that they’ll be able to get big gains on short throws against the blitz.
