Here's a third:

Shotgun formation on 4th and one. Drives me nuts. Wilder said the QB can see the field better to make a decision on where to go with the ball, I say you've just put yourself in a 4th and 5.

JMHO

Short yardage conversions around the county have been higher in shotgun than under the center.

I don't have a problem with that. Not much different than handing off to a running back after taking the snap from under center.
Let's put it this way, if there's a push by the o-line, it shouldn't matter.
But whoever runs the ball, has to make a quick decision and hit the line hard.

I wonder if running a wildcat with Lawry or Cox would have led to a higher percentage on 4th. Maybe with an option for a Tebow-esque jump pass to keep the defense honest?

May well be, but nationwide stats are irrelevant when you're talking about the characteristics of one team. If ODU can't get a yard in a shot gun, then ODU is an outlier and needs to do something different.

We have been very good on fourth down, historically.
