No jettin'?....cuz Bill says so?

Dude yer no fun anymore.  :'(

This is what I dislike about zone and only zone. No misdirection. No meshing. No counters. No punking a defender.  Just pound and ground my dad can beat your dad.

Too NFL and Bama is one gigantic Yawn of a team !

Oh well....keep us posted and good hunting.

I'm going to do a zone based pistol with jet and misdirection or at least I am writing a playbook that does that. 

I don't know that I will be doing or calling the offense next year.  At some point I will be doing a pistol zone with jet and misdirection.  Probably, next year. 

You just have to have imagination (picture me making a rainbow with my hands).

M I must crawl before I can walk.Yes I could jet  but being first year at running this why complicate it.That is one of the reasons some fail.Take the DW,first year coach really don,t even understand the philosophy of the DW and someone has put in his head ,hey run the blast it,ll work or the belly counter.With so many moving parts and a diagram he,s failed before he hit the grass.JMO

Ouch,lol .Really if you have been searching ,studying and asking questions on a subject,and someone points you in the correct direction, it,s voluntary.Now hearing or reading 1 cool thing that you really like and the next day or 2 you crossed over that is converted.I didn,t drop everything at once,I came to this open-minded ,so it,s self conviction.Does that make sense?

That's pretty much the point.  You don't have conviction if someone makes you do it, or as much, sometimes, if you started out that way.

It's the voluntary conversion that's key.

I can help kids with enthusiasm and not believe in the way I am doing it.
Me I,ve never coached anything I didn't beleive in or understood. Disaster!
