It’s been over ten years since the Air Raid sirens sang in Commonwealth Stadium. But, with Neal Brown coming home to lead Kentucky’s offense, it’s time to dust them off once again. Since it’s been a while, you may need to refresh yourself on Hal Mumme’s old system. Wikipedia? Pfft, that’s child’s ish. Chris Brown of SmartFootball.com has written what may be the most thorough explanation of the Air Raid Offense in existence.
Brown charts the history and evolution of the Air Raid, going back to its origins at BYU, its maturation under Hal Mumme and Mike Leach, and the new generation of Air Raid coaches, including Neal Brown. If you’re a die-hard X’s and O’s person, you’ll love it, and even if you’re not, it’s a good glimpse at what we may see on the field next season.
