Thus far the install is only with my assistants but they are excited. Our combine is tomorrow. I won't have a roster for another week or so. I definitely pan on keeping everyone up to date throughout the process.

Haha... me too. I'm jumping up an age division to 5th and 6th graders along with moving to this offense so it'll be a fun season one way or another. I'm excited.

Id like to be there the first game, to see the looks on the opposing coaches when your boys lined up with those splits.

They had never seen the Beast before last year and you should've seen the jaws dropping and screaming at there players to adjust. It took until game 4 repaying the team from week 1 before we saw an adjustment. So we started throwing weird things for fun. Beast Right guard special left was hilarious I wish I had footage of it. I'm confident that I can teach the QB and I picked up a good assistant in the off season that has studied the line play and drills. I taught my daughter the QB reads and she has been able to grasp it enough to tell her brother which player to throw to when he plays Madden with success.  It seems so complex as a whole but the individual jobs and responsibilities are so easy that only a coach who isn't willing to put the time in can screw it up.

First time we came out in the UBSW I heard a HC yell "What the hell is that?" then called timeout the first play of the game, it was awesome, what was more awesome is that our first 3 plays all went for td's that day. Each over 60 yards.

Funny story, the team we hurt the most with the Beast was our org champs. They were just ridiculously talented and had the best sized team. In the championship game they hit us with the stupid swinging gate and I was so pissed at myself for not talking to my kids about adjusting to the incredibly weird. My whole d stood up and looked right at me trying to figure out what to do. I had to be the idiot that wasted a timeout and broke out the dry erase board. I just couldn't justify wasting valuable practice time for that even though I suspected that the very egotistical coach of the other team was capable of doing it.
