I wanted to take a minute and discuss some things as I've been getting several emails wondering where I've been. I'm currently the DC at a small school with very few coaches, so I wear more than just one hat. I also manage all the paper work, I'm the video coordinator (thank you Hudl), run three special teams, handle the managers/trainers and help coach the wide receivers too! Anyhow, I've been busy, damn busy. We are only a staff of five guys, so it makes it tough, but well worth it.
On to the topic at hand about the blog. I am by no means shutting down the blog, but the direction and content may take a bit different direction. I'm going to start mixing in some more stories of experience and things we are going through mixed in with the classical technical article. I'm not sure if I'll lump all that stuff on here, or put some of it over on The 12th Man or not. I may just do that so that this remains pretty much a football tech. site and The 12th Man is where we go to drink beer after the games! Anyhow, I did not want to leave my audience hanging on anymore as it had been a while since I've posted and I do apologize. During the season, postings will be low, of course, but after the season I plan on sharing things I did, things that worked, things that didn't work etc. I hope ya'll understand, and I really appreciate all of the emails I've been getting.
To get technical a bit here, just to wet your whistle, we are about 90% TCU defense (4-2-5...shocker, I know), and we run Nevada's offense with a bit more option thrown in than they do, but very similar nonetheless. I had never been around that offense very much, and to be honest it is very neat to see it come together. As for defense, the kids have picked up on things well, we have probably 80% of the playbook installed right now for where we want to be. We play this Friday night against a juggernaut of a team and it will be a good measuring stick for us to see where we are at, and where we need to be. Anyhow, like I said, just wanted to keep my readers informed on things and where things are headed so I didn't get burned at the stake!
Take care, and good luck this season coaches!!!!
