This. and if hes running this scheme in the NFL it will fail miserably. He's going to run an uptempo offense but the scheme will be different as the one at Oregon relies too much on talent and confusion.. not blocking up field. NFL linebackers would have a field day if Kelly runs the same scheme and he's smart enough to know this.
