What is says in the title. Many people here are beyond "101", but this is a nice supplement to the explanations we get from the front page, Space Coyote, Magnus, etc.
Seeing as Power is our base play, here's a good read.
While many think the term “power football” describes an attitude or perhaps even a formation, coaches actually use it to refer to something more technical: the Power-O and Counter Trey1 run plays, which most coaches simply call Power and Counter, and which are foundational running plays in the NFL and college football. Power and Counter are so effective because their very designs are forged from aggression. They’re deliberate melees built on double-team blocks, kick-out blocks, lead blocks, and down blocks, and preferably finished off by a running back who drops his shoulder and levels a defender or two before going down.
After scoring 18 goals and 11 assists in 51 games for AHL Portland this season, Chris Brown has been called up by the Coyotes. Look for Chris to make his NHL Debut Monday night when Phoenix hosts the Anaheim Ducks.
The article says 'recalled' because Chris has been called up in the past but never made his debut on the ice.
On the topic of his new book. Great read, can't wait for part II.
If you're much of a Michigan hockey fan, you know Chris Brown. He hits hard, takes penalties galore and sometimes makes the CCHA Play of the Year by undressing the Miami (NTM) captain.
The Daily deployed its Massive Profile Machine on Brown today, and it's a good one:
The click of cowboy boots follows Chris Brown everywhere. Find him in any sort of weather — rain, snow, sun — and he’s wearing those boots, trudging through the long Michigan winters wearing something that was intended for a climate more than a thousand miles south.
Around Ann Arbor, he drives a massive black pick-up truck with Texas license plates slapped on it, a not-so-subtle reminder of the Division-I hockey player’s transplanted background.
And there is the music he listens to before games, so different than the hip-hop and electronic beats that usually flow in the locker rooms of Yost Ice Arena. Chris prefers country artists like Kenny Chesney and The Casey Donahue Band, whose most popular song is called “White Trash Story.”
Sadly, no video of Hoke dancing/double pointing yet.
Nice flag. Please upgrade your phone cameras (and point them at Hoke dancing next time):
A light hearted article by Chris Brown on the NYTimes hockey blog about the upcoming Frozen Diamond game against Ohio.
Not as much hype surrounding this as the Big Chill but this game probably means more to the season overall as a win (hopefully a sweep) on their turf would be nice to avenge the earlier sweep by tOSU at Yost!
