Right out of the gate, listen to Smart explain yesterday’s exercise in practicing situations where the offense starts deep in its own territory: “… we try to explain to the kids that if the defense holds ’em and they gotta punt from their own end zone, it’s been an average of about four points per time you stop ’em…”
Schwiing! Give me that kind of attention to detail, even statistical detail, from a coach who’s got a grasp of what he wants to get out of his players and you’ll make a happy camper out of me.
By the way, dial up the clip to the 6:45 mark and listen to Smart respond to a question about satellite camps. Is that the ghost of a smile on his face as he talks about having a plan ready in response to what Harbaugh and Meyer are doing?
