We have 9 games this season. I am looking forward to it and it is going to be a tough season but it looks like we will have a pretty decent team. Jamboree this weekend.

A tale of 2 Cities.

First Game.  20-20 Tied.  Lots of Positives and Negatives.  Had a chance to win in OT with extra point but got stopped short. Looked like we couldn't be stopped at times but failed to replicate for 4 quarters.  Flashes of absolute Brilliance defensively followed by a complete let down. Humidity was ungodly.  Sweat just breathing!  Dew point at game time 79 Temp 85.  Swampy so many kids rotating in and out at positions some were not drilled in during practice.  All on me.  Kids played hard and gutted it out.  With the swampy conditions came a lack of attention to detail.   They were absolutely Gassed.  Again, that's on me.

Work to do in Practice  this week.  Had 3 kids get hurt on the same play.  QB, Back Up QB, and Wing Back/Slot.  Direct Snap to RB for 3 plays until Punt.  Punted once for 35 yards (I was impressed).

Good luck to everyone NOT TOO

You almost always get that one wrong, 95% of the time

Too= Also

Two- number
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

We smashed the team we played in the Jamboree. They only got one long run on us against out 2nd team defense. They just didn't have the athletes to keep up. Next week is going to be a tough test though. We will have more team speed but they are always well coached. Going to be a good one.

Week 1 victory. 20-8. Their lone score came on a long pass. My CB played it exactly as he was taught. Their WR made a ridiculous circus catch and ran like hell to score. This was the first time our team had ever beat this team. Very proud of their effort. Starters gave up 0 first downs. 9 sacks for 50+ yards lost. 4 INTs, one returned 65 yards for a score. 2 fumbles caused, both recovered.

Our next opponent just had to forfeit. They just lost the majority of their team to some stupid act and now only have 7 players. No game for labor day weekend so 3 weeks to prepare for the next guys.

Sad state of affairs when kids cant play!  However, Nice job on the W.

Thanks. And yes. It sucks for the guys on their team who stayed out of trouble. And selfishly I'm not a fan of a 3 week break before our next game.

Week 1 opponent is refusing to play their schedule and insisting that they get moved down a division (has nothing to do with playing my team, nobody fears us....yet).  The league of course let them move down and gave them a brand new 8 game schedule.

Unfortunately, all of the teams that were originally scheduled to play them only get a 7 game regular season schedule now. We did the exact opposite and submitted repeated requests to move up a division as they originally had us in the bottom group.

My entire pre-season schedule up to now was based on a game 1 this Saturday.  Quite the letdown.

A Bracketing failure for sure.

Our league commish has ONE team in Division 1.  (Huh?)  So they are already the division champs without even having played a game.  That happened to me twice when I was a youth header.  Fortunately, we finished undefeated both times, so we weren't just "paper champions."  This year, when we got moved from Division 2 ("Why are we there?") to Division 3 (because of our numbers), our org's Commish asked that we not get moved "down."  Regardless, we still play the Division 1 team this year, so why not be in their division so that it will mean something?  We gotta play 'em anyway.  Might as well have it matter.

Week 1 was the most exciting game I have ever coached.

 We lost our starting MLB and strongest O-Lineman on the 1st offensive play. We lost our starting tailback and OLB on our 2nd possession. We spotted the other guys (2 classifications bigger school) a 14 point lead.

Then after 2 onside kick recoveries, a kickoff return TD, 3 lead changes in the last 1:34 and the most heart and determination I have seen in a long time, we win the game 42-36 on a TD pass with 11 seconds to go.
