the zone read is designed to read the DE

Thats why he's left unblocked.
Bowers was RIGHTLY instructed to take the BACK, but no LB could be found at times because the Guards usually get to the 2nd level on a zone read and they get themselves blocked out. TCU ran a basic zone read and killed us with it, then we adjusted and they changed to a called lead-blocker keeper play with the Guard pulling, but this particular play only burned us once.
And at least twice we had McDaniel and Hall in a position to attack and make a tackle and they did not on that very play.
