Blocking Schemes when running the Triple Option

Many coaches when blocking the Triple Option use the veer block!  When I coached for Emory Bellard we used the best blocking scheme vs. the defense we were playing against!  The players recognized the defense and used the appropriate scheme for that particular defense.

When asked why he didn't veer block every defense?  His answer was, "wouldn't you want to use the best scheme vs. a particular defense".

All other supplimental/complimental plays were rule blocked!

How many of you use this concept of multiple blocking schemes when running the Triple Option?

I prefer McCreas wedge scheme. Simple...effective...and I can call him and meet him for lunch lol

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.
