    1. Hey Alexa, how do I report animal abuse
    2. This is a pet peeve of mine too. I understand finding the best for your current situation, but I was always a big big pusher of "build to a specific play style". With Caesari and Tazer they knew I wanted to go Raid, although I didn't intend for it to happen immediately like it did. If I built a gameplan from scratch, here is how I think the weekly stuff would look. Primary Offensive Personnel: [11, 21] Primary Offensive Concepts: [Spread, Wing-T] Secondary Offensive Personnel: [00, 10, 20, 01, 22] Secondary Offensive Concepts: [Read Option, Triple Option, Air Raid] Primary Defensive Personnel: [4-2-5, 3-4] Primary Defensive Concepts: [Cover 1 Man, Cover 2 Press Man] Secondary Defensive Personnel: [3-3-5, 4-3 Nickle, 4-3 Dime] Secondary Defensive Concepts: [Cover 2 Man, Cover 2 Man, Cover 6 Press, Cover 0] Offensive Playcalling: Aggressive Offensive Play Sequencing: Run to Pass Offensive Tempo: Hurry up after 1st Down/10+ gain Defensive Playcalling: Aggressive Physicality: Neutral QB Depth: Shotgun Offensive Line Blocking: Zone Receiver Routes: Group Assign Route Timing: Predetermined Location Running Back Lanes: [Inside, Outside] ##RB1 is option 1, RB2 is 2, etc. Running Back Timing: [Follow Lead Blocker, Wait for Hole] Blitz Timing: Any time (vs only passing downs vs only run downs, the run blitz is a thing) Blitzers: [Outside Linebackers, Mike Linebacker, Bandit Lineback, Slot Corner] Coverage Rotation: Follow (adjusts who gets what area in zone; compare to stay which adjusts who gets who in man) QB Spy: No Option Defense: Focus pitch man I'm sure I'm missing a lot, but this is what jumped to mind working a few hours this morning
    3. Definitely. I think you should get a big bonus to one scheme as your training camp focus. Then it becomes a zero sum game: if you focus on one scheme it gets better faster. If you focus on two, they improve slowly. Three keeps them from regressing. Learning 1 regresses the rest slower, learning two faster, and learning 3 even faster. Memory and attention is a finite resource. And they shouldn't be good at everything, no. A team who runs only pro style should be great at pro style and make few if any scheme mistakes. But jack of all trades, chaotic/protean/amoeba teams are my bread and butter. We need hybrid, balanced players and really rely on knowing what weaknesses to attack, so the floor and ceiling are way farther for the gameplan than just one scheme.
    4. While I'm around, I'll drop another post of theory/concept: Playbook/Gameplan complexity. As many can probably guess, my personality is quite chaotic and my football game playbooks are similar. I can best summarize it as Multiple taken to it's logical extremes. Offensively I utilize everything from 00 to 32 in small batches, and defensively I'll run 3-4 4-3 4-2-5 3-3-5 5-2 and 4-4 fronts depending on what my opponent is feeding me. Now, these sorts of playbooks would be a complete nightmare to feed new players. So what I'm proposing is some sort of system that allows players to retain scheme/gameplan bonuses a bit so that teams can build more complex gameplans. Instead of primary/secondary schemes, teams can have multiple different schemes, but the more, the harder it is to run properly. An example: Week 1, I run Pro Style. This is my base. Week 3, I add Air Raid to attack a poor secondary. Now my players are learning both Pro and Raid, so they retain slower. Week 7, I pull Pro Style and add Spread. This allows the team to learn spread faster. Week 9, I add Pro Style back. Week 12, I add Spread Option. By the end of the year, I have a team that can run Pro Style well, Air Raid well, some Spread, and a hint of Spread Option. I have no idea how much work this would be or if scheme change just does this. But I've been thinking about it for weeks, so I wanted to share.
    5. Good for the Bulldogs. I don't think I got a single W against Storm Whittaker. It came down to a 3-way tie between Aubie, Bama, and Mississippi State thanks to Auburn's Iron Bowl W. Mississippi State owned the W over both, so in they go! If MSST wins, I unironically think MSST, UF, UGA, and AUB all deserve playoff spots.
    6. Look at all those losers trying to steal a croot from Auburn's home state
    7. There's no chance @cmcgillor @TazerManHcould take him from me.
    8. See, I got So, uh, is your QB single? Edit: Marcus Black, Dominick Sherman, and Brett Champion Jr. for your consideration
    9. I'll keep this short. I was already planning on leaving during the offseason, but I have been pushed to move on. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
    10. Damn, so close. GG @jared2001usa @Dr_Novella
    11. There it is. @Jumbo I would like to put all my credits on Auburn winning the national title this year. Edit: Here's Storm Whittaker's first W over Auburn, back in 2022.
