It's not trickery, it's execution. You can seek the wisdom of college coaches more familiar with the system but it's pointless. You stop the system by simply out-performing the offense. This system isn't magic. It relies on players doing their jobs and making the right reads. I don't care if they go a whole season without running the option play. If the offense performs, the defense needs to step up and do the same.
