    [Scheme Discussion] Pro Style

    If I had a bad to mediocre QB (or any scrambling QB) and a good/decent RB, I'd want to do a way more run-heavy scheme than Pro-Style. If you want to emphasize passing, I'd stick to Pro-Vert or Pro-Air Raid. Those still usually get you ~12-18 carries, which I personally wouldn't want to dip under, even with a meh RB. Titans used that in 2021 with Chris Bell. If I really had a bad RB or really wanted to emphasize passing, I'd probably flip it - Do Air Raid/Vertical - Pro Style. Second, in general I want a power RB in the NFLHC. But for Pro Style specifically in NFLHC, I definitely want power. If I had a speed back and wanted a similar balance, I'd go spread or pistol. You can run any secondary in Pro Style with a power back, but you're probably not gonna run Pro-Vert with a speed back. I wouldn't want that option taken off the table. I also think it depends on if you're lining up shotgun vs pistol or under center. But my gut feeling is I see pro style as a follow those blockers and pound the rock type offense, which I associate with power backs. I can't really speak to experience as comparing Bell to Dess isn't really fair.

    [Scheme Discussion] Pro Style

    Strengths: highly versatile - I mean that in two senses. First, think this is the one scheme anyone should be able to run regardless of personnel. Although I've never run it with a hybrid or scrambling QB, I can't imagine it would be a problem. Second, in NFLHC it gives you greatest latitude in changing your offense without a primary scheme change penalty (and no other primary scheme comes close). You can have a slightly pass heavy but balanced offense with pro-spread. You can go even more balanced with pro-pistol, including the option to have 2 RBs. Then you have multiple options to air it out, either vertically with Pro-Vert or more horizontally (in my understanding) with 4 WRs in Pro-Air Raid. Pro-Air Raid is especially great if you have 4 WRs you want to get touches without having to throw it 60+ times a game. I'll say the Titans have used Pro Style with all these secondaries as I've described to great success. In NFLHC, you don't have the more pass or more run slider, and this gameplan best approximates that, imo. Weaknesses: I think in the NFLHC you need the skill players for this to really shine. I believe I rode pro-style to a 1-15 record in 2019 with Kareem Taylor and Chris Bell, but a 10-4 record so far in 2022 with Wheeler and Dess. Its a system predicated on some balance, so you need at least an above-average passer and ideally an above average runner as well. If you want to use Air Raid or vertical, you better have a couple good WRs too. In college, I'd say the only weakness is you probably need a slightly better o-line that can run block and pass block than some of the other systems. To me, college is supposed to be about having fun with unique schemes, and pro style is very vanilla. That being said, people can and have won Nattys with it. I already addressed most important positions, but I do think the O-Line is pretty important. I'm not sure they are more important in this scheme than any other, but you do want more of a run/pass block balance. You want good tackles if you're throwing it around a bunch, and probably good interior lineman if you are trying to run it up the gut more. Ideally, you'd have strong side run-blockers and weak-side pass blockers. It doesn't always work out that way, and I don't think it matters tremendously. Personally, I just want one good run-blocking guard, maybe two. Defensively I would not be able to tell that sort of thing, but thats why we get offensive gameplan in the NFL right? I would not make those sort of adjustments based on primary scheme I think. But I still have far from figured out the defensive side of the ball.

    [2022] Week #15 - 1 PM

    Even though he had the low grade, I am cautiously optimistic with swinging Jeremy Summers out to right tackle. He's shown upside in past starts and iirc had a good rookie camp. Unfortunately it will be baptism by fire going against the Jag's d line. Seems like I've only had one season where the offense hasn't been completely decimated by injuries. At least the defense has strung together a series of good games. Unfortunately we'll now have to rely on them for any post season success.

    Class of 2022: Noteworthy QB/RB Final Commits

    I got the 5* in state relatively easily while I don't get any sort of advantage recruiting in Connecticut, unfortunately.

    Class of 2022: Noteworthy QB/RB Final Commits

    Beyond excited for Bowman to be Chris Bell 2.0, and glad he stayed at home. If I don't bring in a good QB for 2025 or 2024 pending early decs, he could be huge.

    @AzulCaballero let me know if you prefer Tulane over Toledo and I'll approve you.

    [2022] Week 13 Coaches Poll

    Yeah, thanks to the one person still voting for me but you should definitely give it to Tulsa or someone else.

    [2022] AAC Recruiting(west)

    I got the 4.0 DT with a scholly and visit. I got the 4.5 from D.C. with a scholly and starring him. Then I got the 4.5 from MD with a scholly, visit, and just 15 points. So aside from bonuses I only spent 15 points, pretty crazy. And SMU's only conference loss is to Tulsa, so Tulsa owns the tiebreaker. SMU needs them to lose again.

    [2022] AAC Recruiting(west)

    Great write up. Also Tulsa controls their own destiny, SMU does not. But yeah, I'm gonna have to switch base defenses, even though I have two good ILBs. There will be redshirts involved but I have too much DT talent to not use it. I really only planned to bring 1-2 DTs but no one else was recruiting them so I took 4.
  13. Midshipmen Head Coach TheTodd took the podium today to introduce Navy's 2022 recruiting class. With 20 members, this class is among Navy's biggest. And currently sitting just outside the top 10, it stands to be the best recruiting class in program history. "When I took over this program, our historical record was 8-28, and the recruiting record was not any better," Coach TheTodd said. "My first priority here was simple. Recruit the best students, athletes, and countrymen to make the great state of Maryland and the United States of America proud. And I believe we've done just that." Although Navy has experienced a few down recruiting periods, TheTodd has built momentum with his second top 25 class in the last four years. Coach Todd placed a strong emphasis on recruiting the area and bringing in home-grown talent. Of the 20 signees, 11 are from Maryland, three are from D.C., two are from New Jersey, and two are from Delaware. The Midshipmen look to add 1-2 more players via JUCO recruiting. Without further adieu, here are the stars of the class. 4.5 and 5 star players DT Charone Barfield 6-6 317 Fr St. Frances Academy (Baltimore MD) of [2-Gap] RB Deon Bowman 5-10 200 Fr St. Vincent Pallotti (Laurel MD) of [Speed] FS Andrew Spence 5-11 191 Fr Harrison (Harrison NJ) of [Zone Coverage] DT Kembrell Hall 6-7 321 Fr St. John's (Washington DC) of [2-Gap] OG Damian Meade 6-5 315 Fr Friends (Wilmington DE) 1.0 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] P Blaine Dwyer 6-2 184 Fr Suitland (District Heights MD) 2.5 of 4.5 [Accuracy] 4 star players WR Keandre Mack 6-2 162 Fr St. John's (Washington DC) of [Speed] CB Xavier Cronin 5-9 196 Fr Williamsport (Williamsport MD) of [Man Coverage] WR Ethan Hart 5-11 185 Fr John Carroll (Bel Air MD) of [Speed] WR Isaiah Thompson 6-4 198 Fr DePaul Catholic (Wayne NJ) of [Speed] DE Nick Waller 6-7 256 Fr North Harford (Pylesville MD) of [Contain] DT Marc Webb 6-5 284 Fr Good Counsel (Wheaton MD) of [1-Gap] 3.5 and 3 star players OG Eli Kramer 6-4 294 Fr Northwest (Germantown MD) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] QB Dylan Scales 6-4 216 Fr Northwest (Germantown MD) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pocket] RB Washington Gore 5-9 188 Fr Friends (Wilmington DE) 2.5 of 3.5 [Speed] OT Gregory Beach-Wagner 6-3 256 Fr Northwestern (Hyattsville MD) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] FB Owen Stapleton 5-11 215 Fr Immokalee (Immokalee FL) 1.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] DT Javon Buckner 6-3 317 Fr Good Counsel (Wheaton MD) 1.0 of 3.5 [1-Gap] C Mason Baez 6-1 290 Fr Dunbar (Washington DC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OLB Mohamed Greco 6-2 218 Fr Sinton (Sinton TX) 3.0 of 3.0 [Coverage]
