I just got done reading Brian's most recent breakdown of a possible 4-3 defense, and thought about players learning the new playbook, and wanting to have it as soon as possible. My question is this then, with the coaching transition and staff hire occuring just weeks ago (in the midst of last minute recruiting), when and how does the staff develop the playbook for both offense and defense and distribute them to the players.
Obviously the coaches want to do this as quickly as possible, but Mattison's most recent playbook is for the NFL, and I'm sure he wants to be on the same page as Hoke, who I'm guessing has a pretty big opinion on the matter. I'm guessing offense is a little easier, since they are transitioning from another college team, with the exception of having some talent that might not fit the system perfectly.
Anyways, anyone who is familiar with when players usually get playbooks, and maybe any inside info on our current situation would be much appriciated. Even educated guesses from coaches that I know frequent the board.
