Why Mike Bobo's decision to call from the press box is AWESOME!!!

When Mike Bobo made the decision to call the offense from the press box he made more than one decision. Another decision he made was that he felt that Aaron Murray has complete control over his offense and he trusts he can make the reads he needs to be successful. This frees up Coach Bobo's ability to play chess with Chris Peterson and the Boise defense.

If all goes well the Bulldogs may see huge benefits from this decision.
