Agreed, it is much easier to adjust in 7 days than it is during the game. My high school always scripted our first 10 plays to see how the D was defending our base plays, then adjust the plan (if necessary) from that point on.
Regarding football smarts and Tom Herman. I wonder how he would do against the greatest coach in OSU history who constantly said that he wasn't the smartest guy around but he would never, ever be outworked.
2 things I really think Meyer is too enamored with. Assistant coaches who can recruit and team speed. Ironically, we have coaches who can get recruits in with "speed", but their coaching ability severely limits said players. Then as we saw with Von Bell last year, these coaches somehow mess up talent evaluation. What good does a 4.3 guy do if he is constantly out of position, or he is limited by bad play calling. Lose the flash and hype and get back to fundamental football. One example tackling; I saw at least 15 "hits" last Saturday without wrapping. This really gets to me because I watch my 1st grade son wrap all the time, anybody can do it. That's bad coaching.
Come on Silver Bullet, come clean.
He also had about 20 tackles in the navy game; of the running back who didn't have the ball. Doing his job week in, week out.
MAJOR kudos to Bengals. After watching a family member struggle with paying hospital bills while also dealing with cancer, it shows how understanding this organization truly is. Good to see this NFL team have a heart. Hope his daughter and he kick cancer in the ass.
Guess what MichiganBuckeye; little brother Sparty is all grown up and has been kicking his "big" brothers ass the last couple of years. And I mean whipping some ass with that D.
