Why is Kelly so opposed to a fullback halfback tandem in the backfield. The advantages of having a blocking back who doubles as a power fullback are obvious. Not to mention that it does keep the defense from keying on just one back. This coach makes me sick.
At least today.
6'4" 225 Boykin
6'5" 225 Claypool
6'5" 205 ESB
I can live with a trips like that.
Odd thing to pin on Kelly. They're an endangered species.
Oh and by the way, they used 2 back sets and TEs as fullbacks in the red zone today.
tackling... ohhhh boy.
make believe you are sleeping and then pop up when you hear the whistle. That's going to teach the defender how to seek out his opponent after being knocked on his ass. Is it starting to make sense...?
I was hoping one of our corners would be wise enough to say, "this is a trick drill. Once he's down with the ball he can't get back up."
I am guessing that we will set an NCAA record for yards gained after the play is over this year.
And from seeing how the defenders did in it, it's clear they need to keep doing it. I'm glad they are practicing tackling so that they might actually get better at it.
I've always been told that the WR dropping his head out of a break was a bad thing (ie its a "tell" to the DB that the WR is going to break off his route). Seems like the drill/bar encourages this behavior. Am I wrong on this teaching of route running?
