What I got from last night

Where I was I could not get much of a view of the game, but I followed through information in the web.


1. Cannot deal with an eight man coverage.

First of all when there are eight men covering a field, you know you have a few options in throwing, deep or to the linemen. Another option is to run. We stayed with the four vert option with a quarterback who is new to the concept of time. Limited to that play has its upsides and downsides. Upside is spreading out defense, the down side is you cannot make great fake plays to send defense to the wrong direction like the US Naval Academy with the option.

2. Jeff Tuel and his plays seem to keep him behind lines most of the time

Jeff is not a throw only type. He runs as well as throws under the Wulff era. Limiting him to throws most likely take away some ability that keeps the defense scrambling. He needs to work on his throws and his game clock when finding players on the field.

3. Catches

Really important

4. Foul trouble

This hurts the most last year and this year. The team had so many yards, but fail to gain much out of them due to many penalties.


1. Balace

Blitzing is one important factor but Covering is another. You need to practice more on Covering to help offense deal with it and give some flexibility to defense. You will play passing teams. If you cannot get to the QB at least make it harder to pass the ball to players. It increases chances of interception when more players are assigned to places.

2. Mono y Mono defense

When covering, it does not help when you cannot prevent a pass with one player against the receiver. It hurts when you are penalized interference. The most damage is when they can get a touchdown after the catch.

3. Agression

Really important for both sides, but in a defense made for blitzing, aggression needs to be high.

4. Foul Trouble

Stay out of it.

Special teams

1. Punt

If you cannot kick a soccer ball half way down the field, why punt?

2. Kick

Furny is our savoir. Without him we would of had a shutout.

3. Receive Team

As like the offensive line, you need to guide your blocks to where you want your opponents to be. Touch backs and let the ball go is another factor.

All these and more are factors of last night. Just to be clear with CougCenter, I am not a football coach, but I rather have speak my mind then bottle up and get frustrated.
