Spread of spread offense keeping quarterbacks from learning position’s traditional fundamentals

The instructional video examines the minutiae of the quarterback/center exchange, droning endlessly about hand positioning and foot placement.
Starring Georgia coach Mark Richt — a former college quarterback at Miami who has been the Bulldogs’ boss since 2001 — the video explains every mundane nuance surrounding a simple snap in painstaking detail.
Why is it necessary for a college coach to devote so much attention to such a basic fundamental?
“The spread,” replied W.S. Neal coach Kevin Jordan while watching the video in his fieldhouse. “You’d be shocked at how many quarterbacks have never taken a snap from under center.”
