We call that the HIM blocking scheme. Lol. You block HIM, Joey's got HIM, and Jimmy's got HIM. That's just lazy coaching. Must not be the same staff from 2016 WBR then. They ran a nice tight DW.

I hate the point system. It's supposed to create more competitive brackets, I guess. I haven't seen it.

IF I were a betting man, I'd bet that you'd be playing SCL in SCL. I could be wrong tho.

Ya, I think the good coaches went to the JPW staff. Theyre undefeated & running the SW.

Btw, looks like EBE bailed on the DTDW at my level. Literally the only reason I was worried about em was cuz they were running DTDW.

Yeah, EBE is a VERY tough place to run DTDW. I know from experience.

If I ever move to the Town, were joining forces w/ some badass DWT + stuff. If we have to well start from the Power T so they think were running wishbone. lol

First off, NC barbeque is truly first rate. Whole Hog, pulled pork, ribs & chicken done the way food should be done. Perfect smoke rings, taste, never over sauced. Texas maybe the best for brisket, but for Pork NC rules them all.

Next, I have lived many different places & worked long term in many different states. No where was ever better than my 5 years in NC. The weather is simply perfect. Never harsh, yet a clear 4 seasons. The people are simply the best. I have been out of NC for 7 years, I still talk to my neighbors & friends from NC on a regular basis. I only know 3 of my  neighbors here in Florida.

C, do whatever you have to to move to NC. It would be great for you & even better for the children.

I've run both wishbone and I formations with a combination of WT and DW blocking rules. So yes, it works. We'll throw some SW stuff in there and they'll swear we're running the spread too. ;)

You're making this out to be much harder and more complicated than it really is.

a) Move to NC.
b) Bring your little nipper.
c) Bring the ex.

Coach on my staff.  Put your son on the middle school team.  Volunteer as an AC with the middle school.  Rent out a spare room to your ex.  Don't understand why guys don't see the forest for the trees.  ::)

I thought you were moving to Palm Springs though ?  ::)

That's the plan.  But that won't happen until we sell the properties we have in Illinois, and there's no timetable for that.  Until we can do that, we're in North Carolina.  Plus, we're rebuilding the house we have at the beach, which was dismantled by the hurricanes.  That's the first priority.  So while Palm Springs is the endgame, North Carolina is still the present.

California.  We have a place there now.  We'll be there for Christmas.

Another reminder of what can be accomplished w/ a good ball fake. BSDE comes thru unblocked, hems their best player. Has no idea where the ball is.

Do yourselves a favor and invest in faking!

Well, we squeaked out our 1st playoff game. 24-22. Ive definitely learned my lesson about evaluating Mity Mite film. I was not worried about these guys at all (even tho they were 7-0-1). I just didnt see it. But im starting to realize everyone kinda looks like crap at this age, & 1 or 2 star players can make anything a ball game.

We had major MPR issues. Turnovers, penalities. We lost the opening snap. The only 2 close games weve had this season we lost the opening snap. I think w/ 28 players, any little thing that throws us off schedule vs a decent opponent can lead to some MPR issues.

Our Defense just could not stop off tackle. I tried everything, & their backs just kept getting 3-46... LOOOONG drives which lead to our D being on the field a ton, which contributed to MPR issues.

Offensively it was all about trap today. They really sold out to stop our outside stuff. Thank God we kept investing w/ trap this year despite the fact most of our opponents didnt play agressively enough for it to be a big play. Today it went for huge gains.

We were down 22-16 w/ 4 minutes left. I knew now that our MPR was done we could score at anytime. We ran a couple plays for decent plays. Then went to what could best described as a counter trap. It goes for like 55 all the way down to the 1. Wedge ties the game at 22.

I had been thinking about what Id do for a long time if we were tied. Our kicker is an absolute machine. Id bet hes made 12 in a row. So, I send him in there to kick the PAT. I wont go into all the details, but the ref tried to enforce HS PAT rules for a MM game. After about a 15 minute stoppage where commissioners were brought  out & I really had to fight for my guys, our kicker was finally allowed to kick. And this 9 year old kid, whos has a terrible home life. Kid who everyone told me couldnt be counted on. Kid who ive really invested in. Steps up & DRILLS it right thru. Really was a special moment.

Not gonna lie. At some point I thought to mysef did I just send out a 9 year old kid to kick a game winning field goal? When we gave the best offense in the bay area? lol. If he misses that & we lose in OT, im probably kicking myslef for years.

After the PAT, our opponent had about 3 minutes left. Which just wasnt enough time for them. They needed a good 5-6 minutes to be able to score on us starting from the 35.

D1 title game next week.

You have 28 players? That is brutal in Pop Warner. Congratulations on the win though!

Its tough. Especially when the drop off from our studs to our subs is as big as it is. If it was just starters vs starters, this game is a blowout.

Our beat MPR unit literally couldnt even get a snap off. 4 straight false starts. Our 2nd offense, 1st play hold, 2nd play lost fumble.

Obviously its on us to get them up to par. But its def something our opponents dont have to worry about.

https://www.hudl.com/v/2AkaW3 This is the 2nd to last play of the game. You can see me on the sideline losing my shit trying to scream reverse to my defense (I knew it was coming based off the motion). Our Rover was all over it. You can see our FS communicating it too.

https://www.hudl.com/v/2AkU2R Heres the trap that put us ahead. For all the folks that say you cant trap at this age, here we are leaning on it at the most crucial point of our season.
