    Oth, getting the Navy DC (formerly the DC at Kennesaw State under Bohannon) is a very good idea. The transformation in Navy's D was the main reason they won 11 games this year. Let's hope somebody listened to him.

    They are there to learn, not give expertise.

    What I like to see is us trying different things. What we have been doing will not work in today's college football. We need to be innovative and fluid. This is a good step in that direction.

    A bit of exaggeration calling it a problem and not sure I agree with the article. As a WLB, i loved this bc I’m the uncovered/ free player on runs to if my DT is doing his job getting that double teams. Runs away, i get to roam make plays . Ima give some do’s and don’t

    On runs to the “bubble of the defense” this is what the offense wants to do E6497B27-6CCA-4F3E-9437-525BDFBAFEDD.jpeg

    A decent DT and ok LB can mitigate this

    Run to the bubble:

    [​IMG]

    The DT took on the double team and the Guard couldn’t climb to the 2nd level. At that point, it’s 1 on 1 with the RB and the poor little LB made the play

    Run away:

    Again, it’s starts up front, being disciplined playing your assignment in the 2nd level. DRich destroys the guard a forces the RB track to change.
    The free LB shuffles over and makes the play for a TFL

    BAD:

    Ohio St was one of the best zone running teams but the defense made it easy for them. The DT doesn’t get a double team, gets sealed and the MLB does not get over the top. Instead, he plays the cut back which is the Safety responsibility

    [​IMG]

    Run away don’t:

    This sad to watch 4 guys blocking 2 and i have no idea what our LB is doing. Not sure why BJS is stepping left or into the LOS when the RB is going to his right

    Oh look, our incompetent OC was threatening the defense “bubble” as the article discussed. I guess he knows a little bit about attacking a defense

    Love
    Just want to say thanks for the analysis! I don't always reply, but stuff like this is what makes the board so interesting to me.

    In your experience, how valuable are these types of summits? Is it a glorified networking event for coaches or do you think these are the types of events where coaches are truly out to learn and grow? Guess what I'm getting to is curiosity around how much impact these types of things can have on a team and coaching staff.

    It’s no different than a regular job networking event. Getting like minded people to go over there process and how they handle certain situations. Doesn’t hurt to rub elbows with others in the industry that could potentially become your next colleague/boss

    Thanks for sharing ibee, always good to hear from someone who's played the game at that level. I agree with you on the running portion, but the RPO slant seems to be the bigger issue conflicting the WLB. Would the WLB be better off just picking his poison and attack or just trying to muddy the read? I assume mixing it up is best to cause the QB some trouble. My favorite was against UGA in 2014, I believe Anthony Harrell was WLB on play, committing to-the run and causing Hutson Mason to pull and then jumping in the throwing alley helping seal the game on the Int.

    So easy a 2* LB can make that play

    RPOs usually on the backside of the play, so that wouldn’t put the LB they are discussing in conflict

    Our B-gap problem issue is also magnified by light weight WLB and WDE and not having a dominating NT. Without much bigger players we probably need to keep changing up our alignments to move those light weights around.
