I think you will get your wish.
Happy September everyone. Here's your daily dose of doom and gloom.
Paging any X's and O's types here on the boards...
So, I know only the basics of the zone read (I know that the QB is reading the backside DE - if he crashes, keep, if he sits, give), but I'd like to brush up a little bit so I can better understand it during this season.
So it seems like whenever I see the play run, the DE doesn't observe the tidy little dichotomy of crash vs. sit like he does so obediently in NCAA 11. That is, he never just stands straight up and waits to react to the QB, but instead he usually fires out of his stance in some direction. My question is: what exactly is the QB reading on the DE? Is he looking to see if his first step is downfield vs. lateral? That seems like a subtle, hardly perceptible thing to judge in a split second. Is there a more concrete threshold that our QBs are looking out for? Like, say, does the QB only consider it a crash if the DE winds up on the inside shoulder of where the backside OT was pre-snap?
Follow-up question: If the QB does keep the ball, he sometimes (always?) has a third option with the bubble screen on the backside. What should the QB be keying on in this situation? The backside safety? The corner over the bubbling WR?
Oh dear what have I done ... ok, here is the deal for UConn tickets ... (update: tickets given away)
Ok, tickets are gone! I replied to person via email.
Sorry for starting a new post, but I wanted to carve this single topic out for simplicity. I have received a bunch of emails that I am not sure I can manage responding to them all.
I want to give (yes for free) 2 tickets away for the UCONN game to UofM fans that really would not otherwise get to go, first timers, or other special situation ... and have them enjoy a great experience in the indoor stadium club. I really want to continue to do this type of thing so I don't want to get burned on my first try. Then I can handle other games as time goes on if I have tickets available.
I don't want anything in return, you don't have to get to know me or any other weird stuff. But I do want people to act accordingly as these are seats in my name and I do not want them to be sold for a profit or even for face value .. so I will probably pass the tickets in person at the club entrance.
If you want to compensate me for the gesture, you can make a donation to the stadium project. (I'll get you the contact info to do that if you like) .. or not.
So if a party of two would really appreciate these tickets please email me with UConn tickets in header. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry ... I don't want to embarrass people by having them post their reason for wanting tickets on this public board ... just email me ... sorry about that.
According to Sean Callahan who covers Nebraska football, they just may be.
RT @Sean_Callahan: Nebraska Assistant AD for football Jeff Jamrog just said he expects Big Ten Divisions to be announced tomorrow.
RT @Sean_Callahan: Jamrog told me he thinks Husker fans will like the set up and the crossover game.
They think they will have a cross over game with Penn State.
So I have 4 tickets in the new indoor stadium club. However, I was able to buy 4 MORE in the same indoor club area for 2010 (total impulse buy yesterday w/ no idea who to invite). We live here in Columbus and I really not sure how we are going to be able to use all the seats, especially for the lesser games (UMass/Bowling Green). I did not buy them with the intent to just turn around and sell them, but would like to invite people that might otherwise not be able to go ... or those that really considered club seating but need to see it b/f they buy (I want to support the stadium project) ... or just really nice UofM folk.
At the moment I have not been able to find people to fill all my UCONN seats and will likely have a lot of seats avail for UMass and BG ... rest of season might be easier to get them taken care of, but who knows.
Thoughts? email me at email@example.com.
