We run DCUBSW and have a question about the Nasty Split (we have yet to use it this year). Is there a rule or defensive tell as to when to use a Nasty Split? Or should we use when 16 Power is not getting decent yardage?

I do understand to use Nasty Tunnel when the Split end has no one in the gap and no one is on the tackle, but we have to get to nasty first!

Mostly used to move the DE out or put him in conflict.

When there is no defender on the outside shoulder of the PT or no DT stunting to that gap

You just widen the DE to give you a bigger hole before the play even starts

16 Power- if you aren't getting yardage- you have to understand why
Is the DE crashing hard? You run the sweep or of course you could nasty him wider if you feel compelled to run the 16

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.Winston Churchill

We did have many DEs crashing this year and adjusted to run sweep but did not have a lot of speed and couldn't beat the defenders to the edge. However, we did move our 2B to 1B for sweeps, which really helped as he did have speed and gained good yardage.

We have a team coming up that runs a 4-4 and I know we can run wedge and 14. They will adjust and give us 16 Power/18 Sweep.

Nasty 18 sweep is a good play if the DE slides under the nasty split
Can work, especially if you call it from the hash on the friendly sideline
We were able to run it ONCE in our league title game this year for a nice gain. Then the DE switched back to what he was supposed to be doing

Omaha, Nasty, etc. also has an advantage of looking different.  If the linebackers hesitate at all on power we have a good gain.

Our first playoff game was against a 4-4 team with crashing ends that beat us 6-0 in the regular season. When we ran 16 Power we used Nasty/Split/Omaha tags (all three). The DE didn't widen, so we pinned him but still ran 16 vs 18 sweep. The Split/Omaha combo put us in a twins right look that took the CB and OLB out of the play. We just ran outside the DE and inside the edge guys. We won 24-0.

Regardless of the offense, nasty has to be one of the most useful adjustments you can make. You would be surprised how many teams do not adjust to it, but if they do adjust they have just picked a different poison.

Funny you mention that. We will play a team that beat us 13-7 in the regular season and they run a 4-4.

The team we expected to play was upset. We faced a team that played some type of 4-3 but did not adjust to our unbalanced line. We ran 14 Blast all the way down the field then hit them with 43 Reverse for a TD. We stuck with 14 Blast and Wedges most of the game and a couple Powers/Sweeps. We won the championship 7-0.

Honestly we should have scored 14-21 points. Our boys were nervous and we had many muffed snaps and our QB under-threw a few passes but our defense played outstanding! It was great for the boys as we made it last year but lost to a powerhouse team 20-2 (although we held them to the lowest point score all year and were the only team to put up points against them).
