Played a tough team with a ton of heart we won 7 - 0. My offense looked very sloppy 6 penalties. A week ago at jamboree only one mistake in 15 plays. Starting fullback and starting SE were unavailable today the timing of the offense suffered. We turned the ball over three times. We had a TD called back for holding, two plays later turned it over.  My pulling guard was awesome we moved the ball pretty well when there was not a penalty or turning it over. It was raining but was not a huge factor. I need to adjust two positions. If we would have played one of the leagues top teams they would have made us pay for fumbling a hand-off inside our 20. One of my QB's i noticed from film is afraid to hit the ground while being tackled. coughed up the ball two weeks straight. I thought it was from carrying the ball wrong (which we worked on quite a bit) he is fine until its time to hit the ground. I will address in practice Tuesday. It's just my 5th year in coaching 2nd as a head tons to learn still. I absolutely love this stuff. Defensively we have three studs and they bailed us out today. 1-0 still is a good feeling.

Won our jamboree 21-0. We kept pretty vanilla offensively. Our qb did audible for our last td which i didnt want to see yet(my fault though as i didnt communicate with him not to do it). Proud of them though....they handled a wet ball very well and executed so we were happy.

Won last night 25-0. We run out of the gun with multiple formations. When we would execute correctly, we'd have 3 play scoring drives but that was not the case for most the night. My FB must have thought he was in Madden 13 because he was having issues bouncing everything outside and trying to reverse field when it was not necessary. We got it straightened out in the 2nd half. We had 3 fumbles (lost 1) due to bad snaps or bad handoffs. Our defense was having trouble stopping the dives. ILB were not stepping up to fill properly. Also lost contain on a couple plays which let them get out side. On the bright side, we caused 2 fumbles and had about 4 sacks. Still plenty of work to do.

We won 24-0, to move to 2-0.

Our big TB took two long ones to the house early on, then we punched one in with our second team offense to make it 18-0 before halftime.  Second teamers scored another one in the second half to cap things off.

Defense was terrific.  We shut them down all night for the most part.  Once we allowed a long run into the red zone but we caused a fumble on the run and recovered it.  Towards the end of the game they were driving again and got near the 20 and on 4th down we got our sidelines and fans really into it and the defense came up with a stop to preserve the shutout.

Overall, we just had way more team speed than these guys.  They matched our physicality for the most part, but after we got up early, their level of hitting seemed to drop off some.

Played in tournament 4th grade bracket. We are 3rd graders and missed 2 key defensive players. We won first game 26-0 then lost second game 14-0. Qb seemed nervous in second game. To many mental errors.  Our season starts this weekend against the 3rd grade team of the team we lost to. Lots of work to do.

We won 39-6 against the other peewee team in our association. They are a very talented bunch of kids but don't have much of a coaching staff. It is a shame because that team is talented enough to make a good playoff run. Our powers and wedges worked well in both the sw and dw. Due to the talent level we were not able to bust out the 50yd runs we are used to so we had to work for it. We put together some real nice extended drives which included some nice passes. They scored on a sweep where our corner slipped and gave up contain with a real nice block on our lb and our de playing bad technique. The de is new at this position and has a bunch we still need to teach him. Our fault on that. The safety made the tackle at the goal line but the rb squeezed in for a td. Not a bad performance but we have some things to clean up. Solid opponent next weak but honestly I think we mercy them also. Good coaching staff with some nice athletes at the top end but a big drop off in talent from there. Week 4 should be our first test.

Us too.   Week 4 and 5 will be our toughest games.  We may even drop one of those games as those are talented teams.  Then the playoffs.   A lot of slaughter rule games before and after I think unfortunately.

We mercy at 24 pts.   Which kind of sucks when we are clicking like last weekend.   Because its 3 series and 3 2 pt. conversions and we are done offensively.    You have to sub out all skill players on offense and you cannot pass the ball.  This past weekend we were done with time left in 2nd quarter and time for another possession.   

Our offense is a spread so we are kind of screwed under those rules.   We may have find time to practice a 2nd garbage time O.   

Or we don't kick the 3rd extra point so we get another offensive series.   Not sure if that will be seen as running up the score though.

Game 3 we got a 20-0 win.

Not happy with the QB/Center exchange with my backup QB.  I am not sure if he is pulling out early or what but I am beyond frustrated with him.  We drive down the field and every time we are at the 10 or 20 yard line he fumbles.  EVERY TIME!  This time it was 3 plays right in a row.

We drove down literally 60 yards in 3 series with my 2nd stringers, everyone is blocking well, backs doing well, driving down the field taking time off the clock and the exchange kills us yet again.  I actually pulled a spurrier and slammed my clipboard down where it bounced up and sliced my finger during the game lol!  I never lose my cool either.  But it is getting frustrating.  In 3 games that is probably 7 drives where we were driving down the field and they fumble the snap within 20 of the goal line.

Anyway, defense looked great, got a lot of players rotated in and playing a lot.  On to next week against our rival.  Looking forward to it.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.

Game 2 got walloped 0 - 27. This is a personal one. My offense never got much in sync. Did not fumble snaps it was a +. Got killed with penalties. The team we played is the powerhouse they are always stacked. The had a 140lber who ran down my backs that was insane. I need to manage the game better. My play calling was decent, had 3 20+yrd runs a touchdown called back for a hold. Away from the ball with no bearing on the plays. The other issue i had was since they had a big and fast line i changed the snap counts. The opposing team DE moved everytime and my tackle would jump. We are 6-8 division remember and they stated they would go under HS rules as long as there was not contact. I seen a post about bad coaches complaining about officials and i won't harp on it but it was off to me. I will get back to studying we are still 1-1 with a long season to go. I will be picking your brains and my coaching staff and I will get the most out of the kids we have.

We were totally outmanned.   All we could do is wedge, we couldn't get wide on them or complete a pass, they just had ridiculous speed at every position, crowded the line with 9-10 guys, so we had problems getting them all blocked, and even when we did get wide, our RB just got caught from behind.
This was our game today. we lost 20-0. Kids played bad and were totally unorganized. Kept arguing in the huddle. We have 14 players and 3 get hurt. My RB has fumbleitis. I have another kid who can't ever remember where to line up. We got killed on sweep and bootlegs all day. I kept telling guys to stop following the play. They didn't stay outside. Wedge was the only play we made yardage on as well. We couldn't get sweep or power to go.

Because of deadman zone rules, I think that I'm going to try and put in Jack's 6-3 stuff and maybe even run a 6-2 monster off of that. Back to the drawing board.

If not for the score, I'd swear you were coaching my team.  We lost 14-0 against a team I feel we were pretty evenly matched with.  Our starting 1 back was out sick, and by the 3rd Q our 2 & 4 backs were out with "injuries".  Our backup 2 back actually told our OC in the huddle he didn't want to run the ball anymore...what do you do with that?

Despite this, our offense moved the ball decently, but we stalled out every time we threatened.  Defensively we stood around and arm tackled. 

On top of that, my Aggies pissed away a second half lead and lost to Florida in our home and SEC opener.  I'm ready to set the building on fire.

We won 40-0 in third quarter. We made alot of mistakes mentally. We were just more physical and athletic.

Week 3, win 12-6.  Now 3-0.

We knew this would be a tough opponent and they were.  We don't see many teams that try to throw more than 5 yards past the line of scrimmage and this team lined up with twins right or left half the game and threw it 20 yds down field. Their second play from scrimmage our corner didn't even attempt to get back into his deep zone and it was a pass all the way.  45 yds later our backside corner caught him at the two, and we held. A great goal line stand. Our biggest struggle was ourselves though.  Little things that we saw all week in a week of bad practices. Bad huddles on the defensive side, we break a long TD with our second offense and there is a block in the back 20 yds behind the ball carrier.  A 4th and 2, defense jumps offsides. The only td we gave up, my defense finally huddled, and they were 15 yds from the ball. The guy that gets the plays never watches the offense. They get to the line and are taking their time making sure they don't screw up because our defense still isn't even trying to get out of the huddle. We are screaming for them to get to the line and they finally do, the ball is snapped and they are still 4 yds off the ball. Still had a chance to make the tackle, but they broke that and scored. At the time it was 6-0, so our defense gave up the tying score....with a few minutes left in the game, the offense scored on a heroic run from 60 yds out. Or back breaking tackles and just dragging guys.  It seemed like slow motion.  He was right in front of our bench and when he finally broke free, it just seemed like he was running in a slower gear but he wasn't touched thanks to a couple offensive linemen that chased down and escorted him down the sideline.

I think this team understands what they are capable of if they really pull together and work the right way during the week.

Won 33-0 officially. We have a mercy rule that ends the game at half with a 32 point or more lead. We played 2nd half with running clock. 49-14 if you count the 2nd half. Thats another story for another time. We may have run 10 plays offensively with our first group. Had a defensive score. Probably the most talent i have had offensively in my time of coaching. I will say that if i was hc and not the oc the 1st team would not have tacked on 2 more tds. I actually told the header to call O for the rest of the game when he instructed me to put 1st team back in the game because i wouldnt do it. Guess i will need to work to slow our pace in the future. Lesson learned.
