11/20/2018 - 12:58am OK, here is where I provide…

OK, here is where I provide the definitive clarification regarding the Harvard-Yale Rivalry and the term "The Game".  Bona fides:  I got my undergraduate degree from Harvard and my Law Degree in Ann Arbor.  I am a huge fan of both schools' football programs, their histories and their respective rivalries.  

The two rivalry games have similar names, but they are, in usage, very different.

In most of the sporting world, the Ohio State-Michigan game is known as "THE Game".  The key word is "THE".  It is used, and has been used for many decades, to emphasize that THE Game is more important than any other football game.  Sure, there are plenty of other great contests in collegiate football, but this one is THE Game.

At Harvard and Yale, the rivalry is known as "the GAME".  The phrase is used to differentiate the event from all of the other Harvard-Yale events that are going on that weekend, or from anything else that might be going on in the life of the speaker.  Beginning the last Friday before Thanksgiving, every applicable student organization on campus picks up and gets ready to visit its counterpart on the other campus.  The following would be a plausible utterance for someone planning his or her agenda for Harvard-Yale weekend:  "Friday night, I'm going to the Joint Orchestra concert, then I'm meeting up with my roommate after he finishes with the chess match; on Saturday morning, I'm heading over to the fields to watch the field hockey game; and then I'm going to The GAME before the joint a cappella concert."  Another plausible utterance:  "I can't go back for The Game this year, because my grand daughter is getting married".  Whether or not there are other football contests in existence is irrelevant to this world-view.

Michigan has had great success this year futzing with the opposing Linebackers’ keys, and making them wrong. What will happen if the Opposing Linebackers don’t know how to read the keys in the first place‽

Every time we score, line up for the extra point, but deliberately jump before the snap.  Do this two or three times, so that the extra point gets backed up into mid-range field-goal territory.  Let Nordin practice those in game-conditions.

On that RPO to Gentry: is Patterson reading the outside linebacker assigned to Gentry, or is he reading the inside linebacker who is supposed to help on the inside?  I thought it was the latter, but RPO is not my strong suit.

This presents a series of intriguing roster decisions. 


Simpson at QB is obvious. On D, he’s a safety.

There are plenty of good WR choices. 

Poole has viper qualities. And on O he’s running the ball.  Remember how he avoided being tackled during the Poole Party?

11/02/2018 - 3:55pm Six-Degrees-of-Fullback:



In the article, Mason says he models his game after Kyle Juszczyk, currently with the 49ers, who value fullbacks, because Harbaugh. 

Juszczyk started his NFL Career playing fullback for the Ravens -- under John Harbaugh.

Before that, Juszczyk played at Harvard under Tim Murphy.  Murphy was previously the head coach at Cincinnati, where he mentored assistant, John Harbaugh.

At Harvard, Juszczyk was in the same blocky-catchy position group as Michael Hirsch -- a/k/a fullback "The Wolverine of Wallstreet".

Here is where I disclose that my position in high school was fullback and I wore number 42. 


Here is where I also confess that I am now my second favorite fullback wearing number 42.

Hopefully Patterson won’t ever have to yell “kill, kill!” at the line of scrimmage against this team.

Yes, I think Pizza House is what you are looking for.  Family friendly; lots of TV with a wide array of games shown; they don't tend to chase people off for occupying tables for a long period.  Getting one of those tables in the first place might be challenging.  But once you've got one, I think you'll be happy with the choice.

They're both square -- in a manner of speaking.

The carioca step is designed to keep the pulling lineman square to the line of scrimmage, and more importantly, square to the linebacker.

The drop-step pull is designed to get the pulling lineman heading east-west, and therefore square and ready for a kickout.  Aside from the difference in footwork, a part of the technique is for the lineman to drive his playside elbow backward and up.  The force of this elbow pull is designed to get the lineman quickly out of his three-point stance and immediately facing east-west.  

Here's Wariner describing the pull, and you'll hear him a few seconds into the drill mention the driving elbow as one of the key ingredients to this technique; then he repeats "drive the right elbow back" when they switch the direction of the drill.
