If the Cowboys ran a similar 4-3 over/under base, I'm assuming the translation would be as follows...
"Leo" 9-tech - Chris Clemons - > Ware
1 tech - Brandon Mebane --> Ratliff
3 Tech - Alan Branch --> Hatcher
5 Tech - Red Bryant --> Crawford
Interesting. Can't really run a T2 variant with corners playing that off. It looks like that is just a sub package or something that Kiffin wouldn't run very often.
