Inside the Gameplan: The Duve in the slot

One of the big storylines out of fall camp so far is the move of senior wideout Devin Duvernay from the outside “Z” receiver position to the slot “H” spot that was left vacant when Lil’Jordan Humphrey decided to leave school early for the NFL. Over the last few years, vacancies at the H spot have almost served as a reward position for whichever receiver has the best offseason. Other than the X receiver, who also enjoys closer proximity to the QB, the H is the next closest skill player to the QB and also tends to be matched up on nickels, safeties, and linebackers with divided attention.

What can be gleaned from the ISU win?

If you kept your eye on the battle in the trenches that took place in Austin Saturday night, the game’s outcome probably never seemed to be in serious doubt. Texas dominated the Iowa State offensive line, particularly with its pass-rush, while the Cyclone DL was not up to the challenge of standing up to D’Onta Foreman and the UT OL.
