Coach speak

This is a fun half-minute.

Why do I get the feeling that Spurrier sounds like he doesn’t give a rat’s ass if the other side knows the call (“yeah, there’s a player lined up in the right slot and we’re gonna fake a draw here, pods… you still aren’t gonna stop it”)?

    After the montage of SEC coaches simulating the calling of a play the screen then changes to pictures of the SEC head coaches. Click on CMR’s picture and you get him answering questions at SEC Media Days. Worth a listen.

    No Richt. I guess ‘third and long, draw’ wasn’t sexy enough… (thanks a lot, Bobo)

    Butch Davis’ “UT Orange” look, FTW. It beat’s Dooley’s frat-pants any day of the week.


  4. Spurrier has the opposite philosophy of gratham. It reminds me of that coach that said what is the point of having 100 plays if we cannot execute one properly.

      Great news, there! Thanks Noonan.

      I met Trent last week in Albany…told him I hope he chooses the Dawgs. (I’m sure that had an adverse impact on his decision. ) The baby fat you see in his cheeks in his pictures is not in his body. The kid is fit! He and his mom were very polite and kindly tolerated me disrupting their shopping at Sam’s.


  5. Anybody remember the old Bill Cosby huddle up: ‘get off the bus two stops down, I’ll fake it to you,’

    Spurrier doesn’t care if the other coaches know what play is coming because if it doesn’t work, he’ll just blame it on the players. “Had the right play called. Just didn’t execute it.”

    On the other hand, if you don’t stop it then the OBC will run it again and again and again. Something I wish we would do a little more often.

    These days it almost doesn’t matter if they know or not what play it is from the playbook (I stress almost). There are so many options depending on how the defense looks and reacts as to what happens. You could have the same formation, and the same play called, but if the safety comes up level you do one thing…if he doesn’t, you do another. If the linebackers shift on the man in motion you do X, if they don’t you do Y.

    You used to call the play and run it. Now you call the play and run either option 1, 2 or 3 depending on what the safeties and linebackers do. All that without even having to audible to another play or call a hot route.


  10. help me out here…are these calls in the huddle or are they audibles. If that is an audible(which I doubt), the very first thing I do as a linebacker is assume is that is a lie and I go straight for the draw. uSC does still huddle up don’t they?
