Playbook Question/Why don't we run this?

So I've thought about this before, but watching the Louisville Ole miss game tonight kind of brought it up again. 

 

Ole miss ran some plays out of a T formation with two running backs, one to each side of the QB out of shotgun. 

 

Do we not have this in our playbook? If we switch between Ervin and Stepp (even throw yant or Rahmir in there instead if you want) so much and they're all good enough to get playing time, why don't we run more out of a 2 back system? 

 

Our running plays are so slow and predictable. Wouldn't a two back system make it at least a little trickier to defend if we're gonna run predictable running plays? They at least then have to account for one extra person who may get the ball.

 

We could even throw some option rollout into the mix similar to what we ran against Fordham with toure. Especially since both backs are supposedly good at catching the ball, we could run not only running plays but passing plays out of this too. I think it would be a harder offense to defend, and we have the guys to do it. So why don't we run it? Anyone know? Is this not in frosts playbook at all, does he not trust our guys to do it?

I like it! I'd heard that we were going to run two back sets and I've yet to see it. Step or Yanti with one of the others.
