I know everyone’s got their own opinions about Gary Danielson (mine being, he’s a great color analyst, but not so great when he wanders afield). One thing he’s among the best at is reading situations and formations to anticipate play calls. With that in mind, here’s a story he tells about one time he was too good, at least in Gus Malzahn’s mind, when it came to anticipation. Dial it up to about the 9:45 mark to hear about a jump pass play and Malzahn’s reaction when he heard about Gary’s call.
Personally, I don’t find that to be a big deal — I can’t imagine there are many defensive coordinators watching the SEC on CBS to get playcalling tips — but, then again, I’m not being paid $7 million a year to be paranoid about things like that.
