Manny Diaz Fire Zones, Two-a-Days, and other Shizz...


Fire Zones Bitches!!!
Well, I've had my nose to the grindstone working on the book, so no posts here lately.  I have an opinion post I'm yet to unleash, as it was emotionally written, and I want to be careful not to have too many of those on here.  Anyway, some latest stuff I've been looking at are:



Work it baby!

Coach Hoover has once again done a great job, with Manny Diaz's Fire Zones.  You've got to read this article if you are FZ guy.  I wish when I was doing all those FZ's some years back I could have read this, a very helpful and useful guide.

Hit em' Hard has a great little post on Two-a-Days and some things you should look into when you start fall camp.  Fall camp is right around the corner so this is some good reading for those fixing to hit the gridiron.



2-a-days, right around the corner!

Coaches by the Numbers has some good analysis for all you Colorado fans out there on Dan Hawkins...ouch!  I will say this, there's more to a good head football coach than just the man himself.  Look what Urban Meyer was without both Dan Mullin and Charlie Strong!  Maybe Urban's not as good as we thought either!  Or maybe it takes more than just one man to be run a successful football program.  I think the latter is the one I'm going with.  Anyhow, CBTN is a great analytical tool you need to check out!



Damn!  Why did you leave me????

Ride and Decide has a good article on midline and all the tags you can add to the play.  You can also go here and read my midline article to gain some insight as well.  Great articles on one of the greatest plays in all of football!

Also, from Ride and Decide I found Gridnotes!  Gridnotes is a good place to keep up with what's going on in all of the football blogs.  A great idea, and a must see site.  Keep up the good work of keeping us informed.

I also recently found Becoming a Man For All Seasons.  This is an informative and well-written blog that has good information both schematically and philosophically.  Check it out, it's worth the read!

So, basically that's it, just wanted to check in and let you know what's going on out there.  Like I said, I'm working on the book, so postings will be few and far between, but hey, football season is upon us, and you should have done all your reading by now!  Soon the click clack of cleats will be heard in the hallways, and the smell of sweat mixed with fresh cut grass and August's heat will fill the air!  IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON BABY!!!  Time to get after it!



Good luck coaches! 

Also on a side note the contact email has changed to footballislifeblog@yahoo.com.  Give me a shout anytime, I check it daily.

Later,
