Triple Option vs. A Tough 3-Tech

Many coaches have asked what they can do if that very tough 3-tech DT is eating up their playside OG while running the triple option play?  I have two suggestions:

1) Simply have your QB audible to the midline option play.  This way, instead of having to “block” that 3-tech, your QB can read him.
2) Have your QB “flip” the play to the opposite side so that you are able to run the play away from that great 3-tech DT.

Hope that helps!
