So, coach, is your offense really 100% no-huddle?
Berry: "That's correct. We don't even know how to get in a huddle."
And what would you call your offense? Spread? West Coast? A hybrid?
Berry: "Certainly ours emanated from the spread since the early 2000's. That's where it started, from my copying some other people -- there weren't a lot of others in the spread at the time -- and adding some of our own wrinkles here and there.
"If you were trying to label us, you'd look out there and say we're a spread team. But the spread has gone off in so many directions. So I don't know that you could look at our spread and say it's the same as Oregon's or Texas Tech's. Our has its own different things that are unique to it."
Is there anybody's that you would compare it to?
Berry: "Probably not. There's a little bit of a lot of teams in us. There's a little bit of Oregon and a bit of Oklahoma State. A little bit of the old Texas Tech with Mike Leach. And there's an option component to it, a la West Virginia with Rich Rodriguez."
Does your spread operate at a fast tempo like Auburn's?
Berry: "Yeah, ours is pretty fast tempo. But some of it has to do with how much we want our defense on the field. Certainly you can put your defense in a bind by going too fast and maybe coming off the field too soon. With teams like Auburn and Oregon, you're talking about very elite, mature defenses. Because we were a young football team all the way across the board last year, we were aware of how much our defense was out there. So there were some games where we were very fast paced, and there were others where we had a slower tempo."
