You may have noticed something slightly different with Shawn Watson’s offense during Louisville’s season opening win against Ohio on Sunday. While most of the cast from last season returned and picked up right where they left off in 2012, there were a few newcomers that shined in the blowout win.
Another notable change in the offense was quarterback Teddy Bridgewater given the freedom to call plays from the line of scrimmage.
“We’re very comfortable with him making those calls at the line because of his ability to read the defense and make decisions,” Charlie Strong said during his weekly press conference on Tuesday. Strong also said that one of the touchdown drives in the Ohio game were all calls from the Heisman candidate.
“Coach Borbs and Coach Watson they told me that I have the keys to the car,” Bridgewater said following Tuesday’s practice. “They let me drive the offense down the field at any moment of the game.”
I’m sure Watson will still take the majority of the play-calling...
