This option is an excellent goal-line and short-yardage triple-option play. Diagram 32 Page 50 Option #30: I-Bone Double Option One of the basic principles espoused by LSU head coach Gerry DiNardo is that if a handoff key is easy to read, he is hard to block; and if he is hard to read, he is easy to block. This tenet explains why double options are a staple of the I-Bone attack. For the offensive line, the assignments are exactly the same as in the wishbone rock option to the split end sidethe line just veer blocks (see Option #22).

The option also helped catapult coaches such as Paul "Bear" Bryant, Tom Osborne, and Barry Switzer into national prominence, as their teams became the best in the country. In recent years, however, college football has become saturated with high-powered passing attacks. Predictably, defenses have countered with in-your-face, man-to-man blitz packages as an antidote.

Lou Holtz and his staff developed this option while Holtz was the head coach was at the University of Arkansas (Diagram 12).
