Everything in Spurrier's offense was about timing and throwing to spots. They had some special WRs but they weren't the big, strong, beat man coverage type of wideout. The Vols this year will do a lot of short stuff in the middle trying to get good matchups with speed and size and they will throw vertical. Tyler is going to throw it up and let receivers make plays. Spurrier never allowed his QBs to do that because their receivers weren't those type of receivers.
They had a show on ESPNU, I believe, about the 1992 SEC championship game and a simple route combo that Florida abused all game long. It was the smash or hi-lo concept, where two men were on the short side of the field, and the outside guy ran a stop/hitch and the inside guy ran a corner. Alabama's cornerback either had to guess and risk giving up a big play or split the difference and make both routes somewhat open. Florida ate Bama's lunch repeatedly on that simple combo until Antonio Langham finally decided to guess on the hitch and got a pick six that won the game. That easily could have been a big play for Florida instead, had Matthews read Langham better.
At any rate, I think that story exemplifies what Spurrier was all about-- simple routes, simple reads, and timing, all designed to force the defense into an extremely difficult field to cover. It didn't take a great QB or great WR, which was good for FL because they didn't always have either.
