Need six to eight receivers to run whole-game no-huddle

In the 1/8/01 Sports Illustrated, Florida State’s offensive coordinator Mark Richt said they did not run as much no-huddle in the Oklahoma game as they wanted because “you’ve got to have six receivers and you’re better off with eight.” Two FSU receivers were out of the game—one for academic problems, the other with a sore hamstring. In the whole-game hurry-up chapter of Football Clock Management, I said you needed to become expert in fatigue management to run it. This is an example of the kind of knowledge you need to run prolonged no-huddle offenses.
