Coach Harbaugh was spotted at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series FireKeepers 400 today. Check out the hat:
It's from the submarine USS Michigan. Here's a better look:
I play a little football for a league but I am very new to actually playing, I never played in highschool or college.
I primarily play DB and safety but a few times I walk up pretty close to the line for contain and goal line.
I have 3 major questions on coverage that are not covered well in rule books and just want to draw from all the experience of the coaches and ex players on the forum
1: Sometime my coverage is bad and I just stick with a reciver down the field facing them, I occasionally dont turn around for the ball but I watch the recievers eyes andhands and when he goes for the ball I just swat it out and he falls, Ill work on my covereage but is this pass interference? there is no contact until after the ball has touched his hands
2: A reciever playing tight to the tight end ran forward about 5-6 yards from LOS ( just for the example lets say is was 6-7 yards) and I also walked straight forward and hit him then he whined about it. Is this a penalty/pass interference? I think it was a run play but coulda been a pass that definitely went to the other side of the field if it was thrown
3. On the goal line, say on the 2 yard line I am lined up across from a reciever and play press do I get to press for the 2 yards to the goal line or 5 yards from the line of scrimmage (which would partially be in the end zone)
Thanks for the help, hard to find on the internet
What does he have against North Carolina?
In case you're bored, and didn't save this in your favorites like me.
An interesting article* on Iowa's attempt to build and propagate a winning culture and it sounds like they are on the right track.
Good for them, it would be nice for Iowa to step up in the B1G West. I for one have always appreciated their blue collar work ethic and wish then all the best this season (save the one/two game(s) that I shall be in attendace).
Pass the Ball
Sweep the Sheds
Keep a Blue Head
Be a Good Ancestor
* [Edit at 2:15pm: What makes it interesting is that it's based on a book that all of the players are required to read.
Though the 207-page book, authored by James Kerr, details years of principles instilled by the world’s most successful rugby team, the All Blacks of New Zealand, it speaks profoundly to the current state of Hawkeye football.]
