D, R and C are generally our 5 best players.  D's are FB types.  C's are our best mobile tacklers.  So yeah, D and C unblocked vs. ball should be fine.  If not, doesn't really matter what you put up there, we lose.

And it just so happens that S on that side is our back up CB, he's pretty fast/solid as well.

So are you putting it in for this Sunday?

Just put your Mike Alsott Jr at inside sniffer and have your fastest RB follow him.

I'd pay to see that !

Don't really know.  Glad I don't see it.

And this my friend, is EXACTLY why we're running it. I looked at it, drew a bunch of fronts against it, & hated all of em.

No idea how we'd defend em.

Mike Alsott

Loved watching him play!  Joliet (IL) Catholic High School, Purdue, and Tampa Bay.

A runaway Freight Train, throttle stuck Wide Open!    8)  I constantly remind my backs. "You have to Run Angry!"     

Czonka, Riggins, Alstott.

Welp, the team we thought was gonna scout us wasn't there. So we went ahead an ran Stupid. 1st time, terrible snap, went over our backs head. 2nd time, good snap, 60 yard TD. I'll post it when we get the film uploaded.

Alright, here it is. We spent about 10 minutes practice time on it. There's 6 MPP's on for us. We did a pretty crappy job blocking. But, housed it.

Team tried to run Beast on us yesterday.  I set up a defensive adjustment for it to match numbers, which my D promptly forgot.  Didn't matter, I don't think they gained a yard.  Mostly because it was really really poorly run.

They had to be down kids or something.  I talked to a coach that beat them 14-13 last week, and he was talking up their "moose" formation (beast), and how they threw out of it and got him, and how they had all these fast O/L's.  Yeah, not seeing it.  Maybe match up, or they were down a couple of key kids.  Don't know.  Don't care, it's a W.

Lol. Right? Tho tbf to them, we lined up really fast & snapped the ball on 1st sound.

Our guys are getting really good at lining up & snapping before the D has tine to adjust.

How would you align against the formation I posted above?

Spit balling -


                         Q
                            X X X
       X X X X X X C
D        T    N    T      M         D
          S          S

                         R

   C                               C



That is basically how I told them to align for Beast, I just had R more centered because they were balanced and C/Q was in the middle.
