1) How did you come across The Dumcoach Forum?  Heard about it on the Delphi DW forum

2) What the reason you became a member (as opposed to remaining a guest)?  I tend not to really "do" guest - I've been an active message board user on a couple of forums since about 2000 so I feel like I have a decent handle on "newbie" etiquette (although I have had a couple of...bumps...on Huey's), and I was referred here by guys who were active here as well as on the DW forum, so I jumped right in.  Might have been mandatory, not sure, but I would have anyway.

3) How long did it take you to join after you first found the fourm?  Immediate

1) I was a student of everything wing t, and one of my coaching buddies showed me a copy of his DCWT manual back in 2006 or so, I think, and I went to the Dumcoach Classic site and lurked a bit, but kind of fell off. I was a bucksweep.com devotee back then. Returned sometime in 2008 and lurked some more, but by that time, I was coaching the DW and hanging out on DW for Dummies, and the War Room, as well as Coach Huey's.

2) Joined almost immediately, if I recall correctly, but never posted until 2010 when everything migrated to the new site. Just enjoyed reading and learning. First several years of coaching I spent a ton of time reading books, watching film/video, and going to clinics. Spent a small fortune, but my library is decent.

3) No time at all. I think I wanted to download the DCWT Manual, IIRC.

Coaches,

I have a few questions I would like to ask.

   1) How did you come across The Dumcoach Forum?
First year coaching youth ball, HC hands me an abridged copy of DC46 manual and says "run this defense".  On the back cover has Coach Wilkins' contact info and this forum.

   2) What the reason you became a member (as opposed to remaining a guest)?
To ask questions, learn, and be a better coach.

   3) How long did it take you to join after you first found the fourm?
Immediately

1)  I goggled information about how to deal with problem parents and it brought me here.

2) I wanted to participate in the discussions as a coach, not as a guest.

3) I think a day or two. 

With football season coming to an end, im surprised the forum isnt more active with discussions.  In any case, ive been here for about a month and this is my first time posting.  Ive been reading and learning a great deal from  all the coaches.   Thanks for all the info....

Surprisingly....in season is typically slower than the off season as far as discussions.

Trying to become a better coach for these kid.  I wanted to find a good system to promote within our youth program.  We've been a daddy-ball system and most of our coaches still are.  I've been researching specifically the Cisar single wing and 33 defenses.  This seemed like an excellent location to dig into both!

Congrats on the baby coach. Where are you coaching at? I saw you are learning Dave's offense. Tons of single wingers here.

Thanks - that is partly why I chose the single wing going forward... lots of seemingly knowledgeable folks running it and I really liked Cisar's owledge/dedication of/to the game.

I'm coaching in Mississippi, between Starkville and Tuscaloosa - SEC country. We (our program) has its share of complications, but we typically have good kids and committed coaches, just inexperienced all around. 

Personally I have used double wing that I learned watching another coach I had coached with, but have been unable to capitalize as we hadn't really devoted to the system.  Much of what worked only wored because of the amazing talent of our running back.  I'll have him one more season, and then I start from scratch at the 1st grade level.  The single wing appears to give me a good tool to use between our 1st grade through 6th grade groups - adding more Complexity if needed as they get older.  Our talent level can fluctuate significantly year to year due to tournament teams recruiting away from our base and military families moving in and out of the area.

This season will be my 4th as a head coach.. that needsaid to learn a lot more.  The 2nd I haven't coached any of my own children, and the first year I don't have a youth player of my own (maybe when my daughter is born and gets old enough her mom will let her play haha!)

The DW is a great offense but like any other system, if you don't know it inside and out it doesn't work as it should. Dave's sw is a pretty easy install for any age level and his other material about practice, evals, parents etc is probably the heart and soul of his system.

I have been coaching without a kid on the team for years now. I actually enjoy coaching more now.

to the single wing and DW posts below

I enjoyed both offenses in a hybrid direct snap double wing. TKO, blocking for powers, tko with the slip for traps, my counter was a bucksweep, pulling both guards, it was a lot of fun to install and run but for 1 coach it was a bit much. For the most part everything worked fine. We destroyed teams that were of equal size and talent but poorly coached. We drove the ball, moved the chains and scored against teams that were athletically equal with good coaches, winning 2 of 3 against equals, hung in against 2 superior teams and ultimately got destroyed against the #1 team. I think it was 248 pts we scored that year +/- a td.

I enjoyed the misdirection of the counter, the trap was awesome, wedge was always good but for the #1 team..who managed to stop o-ine cold even backwards a couple of plays ;)

point being is yu can have best of both worlds, SW and DW in a hybrid. Murphy from Clayton Valley does this and went to the CA state champ vs redlands east valley, lost but it was a good game.

Coach Cox's system imo is sort of of a hybrid dw/sw as is Jacks shotgun dw. We run both the sw and dw but I have been trying to get my header to switch to Coach Cox's as I see it as the best of both worlds. I am familiar with Murphs offense and have seen him at Glazier clinics a few times. Great offense as well. The beauty of Cisars's system is all the other stuff that he offers outside of his offense(the offense is pretty darn hard to stop as well).

Coaches,

I have a few questions I would like to ask.

   1) How did you come across The Dumcoach Forum?

Searching the net for football information.

   2) What the reason you became a member (as opposed to remaining a guest)?

To contact others on the forum

   3) How long did it take you to join after you first found the fourm?

Not long

This is IMHO has been the best source of true usable info.  The coaches on here are very knowledgeable and very helpful thanks coaches
