Longhorn Scott of Barking Carnival put together an excellent video about the basics of the inside zone. It's obviously Longhorn-centric but, as he mentions in the video, it's a concept that just about every team uses in modern college football.
Football Study Hall's Bill Connelly published earlier today stats-based breakdowns of the 2012 Vanderbilt and Kentucky football teams. Bill is a little more bullish on Vandy in 2012 than I am. I see games at Northwestern and Wake Forest as something closer to toss-ups, which leaves them fighting for a sixth win.
Gotta give the Senator a hat-tip for this one, and he's right - it's a beaut: "There are three Clemsons inside of Clemson, each battling the other for supremacy, and it’s become customary to see at least two of the three over the course of a single season ...". Why, oh why, Muse, can't I write like that?
Shaq saying all the right things. Reporter asks if he is getting separation and he rightly steers the conversation to technique and working on the details. Frequently mentions Ace Sanders as leader. Been working the x receiver with some time at slot. Next great Carolina WR. Welcome to USC Mr. Roland, glad to have ya.
Aschoff delivers his best/worse case scenario for USC with the premise that Shaw must be a pass first qb. Really, we run the zone read where the run sets up the pass. Shaw is a manager of the offense not a gunslinger, never has been never will be. Best case of course compete for a National Title, and now I have cursed the Cocks, but more realistically an SEC title game and a BCS bowl are well within range.
None-too-smart move by Tanner, who probably stood at least some chance of competing in fall practice for the back-up QB role. Hopefully he learns from it, takes his punishment like a man (two game suspension, perhaps?) and moves on.
