Saw reference to this link on TSL and found it too good to not post here. Of particular note is the 3rd paragraph:
"There are so many choices of philosophies in this game. You have to decide what it is you want to do, and then do it. Do not be the coach who runs a play offense. That coach constantly adds plays that he likes and sees on TV or at a pro football game. Before he knows it, his offense is a mile wide of nothing but plays. He has nothing in that mass of plays to hang his hat on. Your players cannot say, "This is what we are." I suggest you take a long look at your program and identify what you want to be."
(Thanks to BaltimoreHokie on TSL for finding this)
Great article. I liked this in particular:
"If you accept it, expect it. If you accept a player going eight yards when he is suppose to go 10, it will happen Friday night. If it is third-and-10 and you get eight, whose fault is that? Did you accept the fact that they went eight yards in practice instead of 10? Did you emphasize it in practice? If you are getting a huge amount of holding penalties in the game, you are allowing the players to hold in practice. If you allow the player to hold in practice and do not correct him, you should expect that on Friday night."
How they run the zone option play (with two balls) in practice is awesome. Just really creative and efficient way of using practice time.
ACC! ACC! ACC!
