The triple option is a great equalizer. And yes it is assignment football, which would be easy if the assignments stayed the same. But Navy will run it out of so many looks and run so many variations (different read guys almost every play, frequently went to unbalanced looks) that the assignments are rarely the same from one play to the next. Really the only way so stop it is to get it off schedule. If you can get them in a second or third and 12 type of play they don't have much they can run. But as long as it stays on schedule it's really tough to stop. Plus it's not like they ran the triple every play.

As a C's fan, Sully is one of the few bright spots on the team. He would have bigger numbers if we weren't tanking because we were afraid having him start would win us too many games.

Honestly I have a couple choices that were both pretty special to me. This year our second to last dual meet was against Belmont Hill. We were ranked #1 in New England at the time and they were #2. There were a ton of close matches. Mine was in the middle of the dual. I got taken down to even the score at 4-4 with about a minute to go. I was able to scramble out of bounds and get a restart with about 30 seconds left. I tried a standup right off the whistle but I couldn't get my hips out and got returned, but I landed in my base and got up again and hip pressured until I broke the grip with about 15 seconds left to seal a 5-4 win. The dual ended up coming down to the 106s, who were, ironically, by far the worst wrestlers on both teams. They got into a scramble and their 106 locked up a crossface cradle but ours held onto the other guys leg until he lost the cradle then hit a sag headlock for the fall. It was a ridiculous way to end a great dual but nobody cared because we won.

My second option would be my last year of middle school football against Danvers. We were 5-2 at the time and we needed one more win to qualify us for the playoffs. We'd gotten crushed by them earlier in the year, but I had the best game of my football career so far and ended up with 6 total TDs in I think 12 minute quarters and we won 44-40 (I know we won by 4 and I think that was it). I've never felt that way in any game ever again. I felt like I was perfect, like I couldn't miss. Even though I can't remember all the details anymore I'll remember that feeling forever.

Yep. I'm always in favor of starting the veteran. Most people that never played don't understand the sheer brainpower and understanding of the system it takes to play the game, and I'm glad you're not one of them.

Wow. We got the W but that was painful to watch. I was really impressed with Heflin once he started attacking though. I'm fine with him wrestling super defensive in matches against tough kids like the one he had today, because that's obviously the style he feels most comfortable wrestling. But when he has a chance to get bonus points I would like to see more of what we saw in the second period.

It is very, very rare to see man coverage across the board in this day and age unless it is accompanied by a heavy blitz. Cover 2 would be a good scheme for us if our safeties improve a lot.

Ok, I'm sorry. You want to play press man with our current personnel? You realize that that involves putting Pitt Brown on a island with a slot guy? And if you want to bring RDS you will need to leave Grant on a back?


Edit: you will also rarely see press man without safety help anymore unless accompanied by a 6-7 man blitz.
