Wide Line Splits: Math Meets Physics

I have always been intrigued with Coach Woody Hayes. Although he is most remembered by an incident in a game, everyone said he was a tremendous teacher. I read once that he did a study on the geometry of the force created by the down block, in order to prove his logic. He took the math and applied it to football to make his teams much greater than his opponents. He solved for the "why", or in mathematical terms, the hidden variable "Y." Taking a page from option teams of the past, wide line splits are nothing new to football.

SPEED: Why It Is Irreplaceable, and You Better Have Some

The NFL combine 40 yard dash has always been the hot topic. Seeing the best athletes in the world run at blazing speeds has a certain wow factor. But what is speed to the game of football? Coaches will talk about sprinter speed vs. football speed, and debate the ability of both.

Tempo, Balance, Number of Plays

Tempo, Balance, Number of Plays, and any other aspect we spend too much time talking about Search the internet and social media and you will see any subject that peeks your interest. I have to say I have taken quite a break from trolling social media  this off season. While I think that social media is a great tool and has propelled coaching further than anything in the past 10 years, I do believe it takes as much time away from it to process what you have taken from it. How much film have you watched this off season, of last season.

Increase the Potency of Your No-Huddle – Get in a Huddle

If there any coaches that know me reading this, they are probably confused by the title of this article. I have made it no secret that I think we should go as fast as humanly possible when we are running our offense. So why would I tell you to get into a huddle? Because it works, it gives you an advantage, and it can slow the defense down.

Double Post Concept

My favorite pass concept of the past five years has to be the Double Post concept. A well run post is one of the most difficult routes to cover, so my thought is why not run 2!? The Double Post concept is something that has been around the NFL and College for a long time. In the West Coast, it is run as a Dino Double Post and a wrinkle on it was made famous by Steve Spurrier and the Florida Gators.

RPO’s and Packaged Plays – Playing in the Sandbox

We have been running some form of packaged plays since 2013 when I saw a clinic talk by Mike Emendorfer from UW-Platteville. Back then it was on the cutting edge of what teams were doing, but not it has become very advanced and teams at every level are running packaged plays, and RPO’s are all over as well. Our use of RPO’s and Packaged Plays has evolved tremendously from our meager beginnings in 2013, but there are some aspects that have never changed because they work so well for teaching and understanding the concepts involved.
