I agree with this. As great as Greg was, I don’t think teams were really scared of the deep threat when they played us. Teams were able to keep their safeties up and spying Greg. When Greg did throw it deep, he lofted it and gave DBs plenty of time to either catch up with a receiver or run under a ball. How many times did we see Greg heave it down field and Chance Allen would have to stop and come back to it. With Kyle, they will have to be wary of the deep threat because he can throw it on a rope way down the field and we have some guys who can get down the field. He has the ability to hit streaking receivers in stride like Case was so good at. A legitimate deep threat does wonders to open up the running game and intermediate routes over the middle of the field. This is precisely what makes Baylor’s offense so good (and by proxy Tulsa). SMU’s offense could be that good if they could find a good QB.
I’m getting really excited just thinking about the possibilities. The keys will be accuracy and health. Since the OL should be better this year, I really have my hopes up.
