General Offense Discussion / Re: "Stunt Proofing" the Beast
« Last post by gumby_in_co on Today at 04:41:43 PM »
Sorry guys, I don't get "not a worry".  Every year I have to put several linemen out on the field who may or may not even touch the guy they're blocking.  I have a hell of a time locking down the gap created by one G pulling, you're doing that size gap across the line.

So either your guys are a hell of a lot better than mine, or you're a hell of a lot better coach, or both...probably both...  :)

Neither.  Giant splits makes the o-line's job a lot easier.  A huge turning point this Spring was about half way through. We had been working a lot on asking for help  and when/how to give help. My Inside Tackle was struggling against a man-child of a DT, so I called "Ogre" to his outside buddy, which means "help him". My IT waved me off and changed tactics. Instead of trying to move him, he just let him run upfield and ran with him. DT was 4 yards deep in our backfield, but not in a position to make a play. 4 plays later, DT was exhausted, so my IT changed tactics again and started moving him. Perfect example of a lineman taking advantage of the system and taking what the defense was giving.

I've been giving the "stunt proofing" a lot of thought. We're going to have to bird dog Domino vs long stick stunts on a weekly basis. There's one thing that can stop our unstoppable offense. We'll just make sure we are good at countering that.

We play their HS team, Matt C played HS football for their coach when he was at Boone. I really don't know anyone over there who could help. I do know all Mid Florida games are on HUDL.

I believe you mean the Hagerty Huskies.

Yes I did, 2nd time I made this mistake today!

I did reach out through HUDL to request film, which may have irked him.  I just want to give the kid a fair shake as I have seen most of the kids he will be trying out with play on film or live.

6-3 Defense / Re: Traditional Cover 2 out of Nose alignment
« Last post by COCoachKC on Today at 03:07:20 PM »
Does anyone ever run a traditional Cover 2 look from the NT alignment? So instead of playing base inverted cover 2 with two Mikes (Mike and Mo), play them as traditional safeties playing deep and hard corners covering flat? Seems like mixing it up between inverted cover 2 and traditional cover 2 when in an odd front would keep other teams guessing, especially against teams that like to run outside. Any thoughts?

Why not just run Jack's PRESS?  That adjustment specifically addresses teams that gives you fits in the flats with run support without changing responsibilities.

Strength / Speed / Conditioning / Re: L. Simmons 40 yd dash podcast
« Last post by Seabass on Today at 02:44:40 PM »
Louie can be difficult to understand sometimes. Every once in a while he seems to contradict himself. Most of the time, I figure out that he didn't contradict himself, he just skipped something that gets cleared up later.

IMO his best interviews are when the interviewer asks really specific questions.

I don't know if you guys picked up on this but near the beginning,13:13 mark of the podcast, one of the interviewers made a comment about HS kids being weak in certain areas. Louie had just spent 10 minutes talking about how critical bar speed is but after the interviewer made his comment he said, "In the very beginning strength is more important than speed...concentrate more on strength, don't worry if it's a little slow".

Double Wing Football / Re: Double Wing at 5-6 years old
« Last post by spidermac on Today at 12:36:41 PM »
We ran a modified version of Jack's Buck Wedge Series with 5's and 6's, split flow so lots of misdirection, plus the boys only had to learn how to do a couple of things...

Most coaches dont understand because they themselves never experianced progress in strength or speed.

Louie is smart and revolutionised the strength coach world. However i understand how some just dont relate l, understand, or want to learn/read his ideas.

I spent a total of 6 months at wsb as an intern, the formula is less about knowing and more about learning.  Most coaches dont want to keep learning

Agreed.  Also, Louie's explanation of the Westside Barbell Method / conjugate system is about as clear as mud.  I remember in the mid-90's sitting down with a huge stack of powerlifting USA magazines, reading every damn article the guy had written to date, trying to make sense of what he was talking about.  It's actually pretty simple when you manage to wrap your head around it.
