1. How Will The Offense Operate?
DO NOT say to Jim Mora’s face that the offense is now a pro-style. He will deny knowing what a pro-style is while looking directly into your soul.

Mora made it known early on in Spring Practice that there were not wholesale changes being made to the offense, but rather “tweaks”. The Bruins will be playing in more power-based formations, but he has also let it be known that they will continue to have four-wide sets.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to get a proper feel for how the offense will actually operate as the Spring Showcase will be more of a practice than a game.
Understandably, Mora wants to limit hits and focus more on teaching, so those in attendance will be treated to a showcase that will have many pauses for teachable moments.
What you will see, when the offense does perform is a Josh Rosen starting from shotgun and under center and still looking good. You will see an emerging group of receivers and a stout running game. You will also see an offensive line in progress.
