General Defense Discussion / Re: 'slanted' NG

this covers a bit of how dungee used the tilted NG in combination with his well known 'tampa 2' defenses.

i hadn't realized he schooled under knoll/carson.  thus the similarities with the old steel curtain.

a few years ago i skipped the pre season meeting with my parents.  i was working full time, we had a new baby etc  etc.  huge mistake.

we lost our third game of the season 0-6.  there were a lot of factors.  we had to play two games in a day, it was 90 degrees, i wasn't able to properly scout the second team, and we stunk it up.  got it inside the 10 like 4 times and kept fumbling, etc etc. 

anyway, nobody liked the UBSW.  there was mumbling when we were winning, but it turned into a full scale insurrection as soon as we lost.  they literally were circulating a petition in the stands to have me removed. 

the following monday, i sent the boys and ACs to a corner of the field to practice special teams and addressed all parents present and told them i'd be happy to step down, but in the best interest of the boys i would not do so until they provided a replacement, either from the assistant coaches or if one of them would like to step up.  since they weren't all there, i followed it up with a mass email which was very brief and to the point.

guess how many people jumped up to do the job?

a few years ago, the head of our org had some music cut up, used it for pregame, TDs etc(i think he used mostly acdc for TDs)

anyway, he had that wierd pop song in there-i don't know the name of the song/band, but one of the lyrics was 'all the other kids with the pumped up kicks better run better run, run from my guns...'

i did a bit of research and it turns out it was about school shootings.

he took that one out.

We did the same thing at the Youth level. In the end players will respond to responsibility better if they own it. We had a Turkish player a few years back who named a pulling guard "Casper" as in Casper the friendly ghost. Here in America that cartoon hadn't been on for decades but in Turkey it was popular.

Giving players input has always been a successful, although not always appropriate, tool for us. We find it really cuts down on mistakes.

The "Tilted Nose" fell out of popularity when Zone became more & more common. Zone opposite the "Tilt" was difficult to defend. There was also a time playing a "Tilted End" was in vogue. It actually was very interesting to play. Against certain offenses we will still use a "Tilted Nose" if we have that type player.

DC Wing T Offense / Re: Defenseless defenders
« Last post by PSLCOACHROB on Today at 06:42:52 AM »
I don't know that any of us can say how the rule will be enforced until they start enforcing it. I also don't get how a hit by a stud player to a defenseless defender should be looked at any differently than a hit by a not so good player. The hit is either legal or it isn't. So different players play by different rules? I hope not. I have had some kids run a motion crack that went on to play D1 ball. Those blocks can really effect how that backer plays. That is the whole point really imo. I would rather teach a one block fits all for that than try and tell my stud player to take it easy and my not so physical guy to try to crush him.

"I told Lonzo, One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points"
... this is an actual quote from a grown man to his adult son after being eliminated by a top program with one of the greatest college basketball coaches in history (Calipari @ Kentucky)

You just got to sit back and laugh at the babble that goes on in the stands. "hit somebody"
"My kid is the greatest player on the planet why isn't he getting the ball every single play"
"This coach needs to *insert nonsensical football scheme comment here*"

I would love to hand these people a clipboard and meet them mid season.

Or at least sit the arm chair football scholars down and ask them to draw their complaint out on the white board.
