Game Charting

So are we going to attempt to do the Game Charting project again this year? We had a decent start to it last year and it kind of fizzled out. Chad took it over and did it on staff and made a weekly post out of it. If the staff isn't going to do it, I think we should try again. I can take a quarter here and there again this year as I had fun and learned a lot doing it last year.

What exactly is the project?  Charting every play of the game?  During or can it be after?

Volunteers DVR'd the game, divided up the quarters and offense and defense so 8 volunteers per game and took notes on every play: formation, down and distance to start, yardage, and graded every play, noted people who stood out for missed tackles/blocks/dropped balls/great catch/etc.

If you ever read MGoBlog, he does a Upon Further Review (UFR) and it's just like that basically.
