I had a good conversation with coach Correa today over the phone  about the ice pick method.  I'm really excited about using it, I did just remember one I forgot to ask ya.  When you engage with the block,  does the lineman have his elbows up right away before contact or do they bring them up after they have hit the defender?

When you engage in the block your hitting with shoulders 1st then controlling them with forearms and elbow's while your staying stuck to them for the 12 step cure.

You must've missed what I wrote slightly upthread.  If the elbows were up going into contact, it'd be illegal.  Bringing them up after you're in contact is legal.

To be fair, he might have skipped your post intentionally.

I didn't say you were.  I was writing about what you're hitting with, not what you're hitting on.  Regardless of the specific att'n to that illegal act, hitting anywhere else with a projecting elbow is still illegal too.  From Fed 2-3-3:9-4-3j says:The technique Coach Correa describes is legal because the elbow is not projected at the time of contact, but the technique you describe appears to be illegal.

Bob, I thought you were referring to what we were using to hit with, or where we were hitting our opponent.  No, we are not running around with our elbows in front of us.

oh I remember this thread, this is the one where B Goodman thought player was sticking hands in other players armpits, or was it his elbow to his own armpit, right elbow to his left arm pit..

You were confused too by the original description, as was Doug.  Putting the hands in the opponent's armpits, thumbs in front, is the way a lot of people do hands blocking, so it was easy enough to think he meant that.
