Jr,thanks for the posting.I.am not arguring about the defense,I like it.Was only stating what we did against that formation.If teams are not going to teach the responsibilites of their players (not playing sound) we have to identify that and we as coaches have to take advantage of it( take what they give us  :)  )

No worries, I was just trying to answer your question.  For what it is worth, I think I like the counter and cross into the short side when the defense is over shifted.
"They call it coaching but it is teaching...You do not just tell them...you show them the reasons"

"You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important."

NORMALLY you will count the MIDDLE man on the O-line as MID-POINT whether he is a Center in a balanced line, or a Guard in an unbalanced line BUT we don't ALWAYS follow that rule.

In balancing out strengths & weaknesses numbers wise you must account for where BACKS are too.  SEE ATTACHMENT:  Sorry I cannot elaborate further because there are too many damned "what-if's", but feel free to PHONE me if you wish (804-716-7038)

Mike is responsible for recognizing unbalanced. By rule, tackles take their alignment on the #3 man on the LOS, #4 is the center whether he is snapping or not.  The only exception is if we get an over formation with a SE.

We always try to get the NUMBERS BALANCED.  For ONE example:  Some people (Coach Paul Sizemore @ Orange HS) we played would unbalance one way, & put ALL the backs the other way:  This gave them 7 1/2 men OPPOSITE the "mid-point" in the unbalanced line.  Simple unbalanced adjustments by the front people wouldn't (in & of themself) handle this:

Wide side of field to defense's RIGHT:

------------------------O
----------------------------O
------------------------O------O
--------------O-O-O-O-X-O-O
----------------------*


NOTE:  NORMALLY SPEAKING vs. an Unbalanced Line = Make slight adjustments.  If you move your defensive line over one whole man you may need to revolve the secondary to the other side!
