This was designed by the “Bear” to create a 3-on-3 versus the Triple Option.

If the Center and the Guard Ace the 0-Technique, the Tackle can’t get to the scraping linebacker, and there’s three defenders to defend the Dive, Quarterback, and the Pitch.

Obviously, if the defense does this, you run Zone Dive; however, a dead play is a dead play.  This is why Scooping the 0-Technique with the Backside Guard is so vital on Triple Option.
