fair point that
I have a question about how plays are relayed from the OC to the offense and the differences between no huddle and conventional styles. As I understand it, Al calls the play, it gets relayed to Devin by someone on the sideline with a headset via hand signals. Devin then reads the play off of his arm band to the rest of the team, they break the huddle and line up. Correct?
How much different is no huddle mode? Would the entire offense have to memorize the plays and hand signals so that everyone just gets the call directly from the sideline? Is this something that's feasible to implement mid season? Brian has talked at length about the advantages no huddle gives to the QB in terms of time to change the play after seeing the defense (or for the OC to call in another play). What got me thinking is with the talk of a new center (and the young interior line in general), would getting to the line more quickly and seeing defensive alignment also help the center make the blocking assignment calls and for the OL to ID their targets?
The first two games of the season I noticed backgrounds being submitted under Diary column. I haven’t seen once since. I love setting them on my computer at work in Cincinnati Ohio. It makes for some good talks when people come in and out of the office all day. Does anyone have the new Minnesota’s one for this week’s matchup?
The post isn't very specific but apparently changes have been made to personnel and blocking schemes as well. That's it. Let the discussion commence.
Edit: There are no other details to post. This is literally everything that Rivals posted.
Per national analyst Ryan Bartow's free "Insider Notes" piece from today:
"3- Kevin Dillman, 5-star QB, La Mirada (Calif.)
Michigan and Nebraska are his Top 2. If Michigan offers, the Wolverines could likely land a commitment this winter or spring"
“I grew up watching Tom Brady. If there was one offer I could wish for it would be Michigan. I really like their coaching staff,” - 5-star QB Kevin Dillman, La Mirada
All free info here, by the way. This sounds really good
I have been trying to put together a Michigan fan group in central Virginia this fall. I have a group which pretty consistently gets 7-10 Michigan fans together at the Livery Stable in Charlottesville, VA.
I know there is a permanent thread for Michigan friendly bars, and I will put this there as well, but I was just hoping to get a little bit of front page time.
I've created a facebook group called "watch Michigan Football in Charlottesville." The group is open so feel free to join to get updates on where we will meet, etc. For now, the meeting will be at the Livery Stable which is on the downtown mall. Their website says they are not open until 5, but don't believe it! They've said they will open just for us for kickoff.
Hell, allow Hayden to do whatever he wants until the end of the season. Allow Fresno to finish the year with their head man, but securing him now would be a major get for this program. JMO, but the guy knows California, has obviously recruited well there, and unlike Lane Kiffin, has also coached well there. Let's not forget how he also turned every defense around that he's been associated with. In the h.s. football mecca that is S. CA., he just seems to be the perfect fit. ^By now, eveyone knows I can't get a paragraph here, no matter how many times I hit the enter button, but is it as obvious to everyone else as it is to me how much Kelly hurts ND by not utilizing his rushing attack enough. He has recruited some tremendous OLmen and some of the nation's top rbs. I'm not saying it is, but maybe a young man named Cierre Woods noticed the same damn thing.
