Question for War Eagle Football fans about Auburns Offense

Can any football Savvy Fans here make a post or responds that can outline Auburn footballs offensive philosophy, with a major emphsis on explaining the passing game? This really question really speaks to those that may have insight on the football team and what concepts are taught in the passing game.

The root of me asking this question is to try and determine what the term "one read offence" means. This really seems to be a important distinction between the talking heads in the main stream media. Case in point Cameron Newton playing in a system that relies on him reading one reciever and then taking off and running. I found this to be a simple theory that didn't hold up against the stats. Considering that he only ran 43 times during designed pass plays...and only 15 times in the last 6 games from designed pass plays. It leads me to wonder how this is possible to excute a one read and run system and yet maintain such a high comp% and quarterback rating.

Also from a recruit stand point would it not deter some prospects from wanting to follow in Newtons foot steps if they will be framed as playing in a "one read system"? To me something just doesn't add up. I am a Michigan fan and i note this is the pattern with a Denard Robinson. Yet to a degree Newton ran the same offence ...how is Auburns one read passing system different that Michigans? Is it just skill level or is there more to it than one read and take off running?

Comments/ advice/ another detailed fan post please :)?

We're all just trying to have a good time here. Don't be a jerk, and we won't have a problem with you. War Eagle!
