He knows. Seth has been mistakenly spelling his name “Niko” in the last couple front page posts.

For your health!

Not OP but Washington. Chris Petersen is famous for his lack of offensive identity. While 99% of coaches run a “system” with base plays and constraints, Petersen runs a collection of plays that work against the defense they are facing.

VERY nice accuracy and good mechanics, especially when throwing across his body. Good find.

They scored 2 touchdowns vs. Missouri running zone reads. It's not the flexbone triple, but it's still option.

I agree about the RB screens, but wasn't one of the first plays of the game a swing to Isaac that went for no yards?

Hire. Gregg. Daniels. In-state talent, wants the job, and would put an end to this nonsense. You could easily put Brandy and Dierdorf on color and radio broadcasts would be a million times better.

09/07/2017 - 2:49pm I am reasonably convinced

I am reasonably convinced Isaac's 36 yard run in the first quarter was a read, not just straight power O. I think Speight has the option to pull there (not that he should/would in this situation).

08/18/2017 - 1:14pm The fundamentals of the game

The fundamentals of the game are very important, and super athletes simply aren't well-rounded enough to immediately play. I coach HS rugby and I convinced a few of my school's college bound football players to come out to practice (DI, DII, JUCO). While their athleticism was impressive, their tackling technique was horrific and they couldn't pass very well at all. There's a lot more to the game than being fast.

08/10/2017 - 12:12pm Wow. I just moved to Houston

Wow. I just moved to Houston last summer and it sounds like a paradise compared to Dallas. It may be an ugly swamp, but at least it has some character (and great food). I'll still be going to Dallas for the game, but you don't make it sound too appealing!

Not off a tee. He used a stand. It is very impressive that he kicked that off the ground. With that said, that trajectory of a kick would get blocked 100% of the time.

Flyhalf here...I had it good. I'd just pass or kick it before contact, and other fly halves would do the same. Still had a nasty head-to-head hit once though when I tried to run a guy over. It didn't work and I don't remember playing the second half of that match.

Gregg Daniels (Free Beer for GR people) has expressed tons of interest in the job...I wish they would give him a shot. He calls the biggest national games for Compass Media Networks (including Michigan) and does an amazing job with the PBP side of things. Gregg and Brandy are the way to go.

Hahah agreed!
I remember the Jets would bring in Brad Smith and put him in completely normal under-center formations. The commentators would lose it about the "Wildcat QB" coming in, simply because a fast black backup QB would enter the game.

10/09/2016 - 12:31pm It kind of bugs me that

It kind of bugs me that people keep calling Peppers a "wildcat QB." Having a fast guy at QB =\= wildcat. Wildcat used to mean lining up in the Single Wing with the unbalanced line and all, and running plays with jet action.

10/05/2016 - 4:59pm The clap is the signal to the

The clap is the signal to the center that the QB is ready. The center then delays as long as he wants before yelling "go" and snapping. At least that's how OSU did it a couple years back.

12/23/2015 - 11:41am "Spread" is just using 3+

"Spread" is just using 3+ wide receivers...it is not a single offense, nor does it mean anything regarding to tempo. Execution and talent dictate how good an offense is, not scheme (although it can definitely help).

For some examples of variation:

Oregon runs a lot of inside zone, outside zone, power, and counter option plays, and does so at a fast pace.

Ohio State runs a lot of power concepts at an average pace.

Arizona runs a lot of zone and some trap concepts.

Auburn basically adapted the Wing-T to the shotgun.

Washington State often throws 50+ times a game.

The idea of there being one spread offense is a bit of a misnomer. Using offense that utilize space and speed are sometimes more likely for small schools to have success, but not always.
