Historical Football Pieces

I’ve been re-watching old classic games on YouTube and decided to invest time in some historical football pieces.

The first is on the top 10 traditional (under center) option quarterbacks – Click below or here to read This includes Keenan Reynolds, Kordell Stewart, Donovan McNabb, and Tommie Frazier as a few of the big names in option football from the 80’s, 90’s and today.

The second historical piece covers the 5 QB’s the ‘Canes defenses of the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s gave nightmares to. The list includes Peter Gardere (Texas), David Klingler (Houston), Chris Rix (FSU), Keithan McCant (Nebraska), and even Troy Aikman (Oklahoma). There are guest features from Marvin Graves (Syracause) and Todd Ellis (South Carolina) as well. Click here or the image below to read

Why more “bad” NCAA Football programs should employ the Flexbone offense

(Updated 5/10/2018)

Since 2003, the Navy Midshipmen have won at least 8 games in all but one season, a woeful 5-7 in 2011. While that 2011 record gives cause for pause regarding Navy circa 2016, it would have been tied for the Middie’s best season from 1998-2003 when the program had win totals of 3, 1, 2, 5, and 0. What are the keys to Navy’s success? Program discipline, leadership, scheduling, technology, and the flexbone triple option.

Film Room: Army vs North Texas Re-Match in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl

Army and North Texas are aligned for a rematch in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl on 12/27 at 9am (noon eastern). North Texas won round 1 35-18. On the S&P+ Army is ranked 81 while North Texas is ranked 111. Regarding turnover margin (my favorite stat after S&P+) North Texas is ranked 52nd, Army was ranked 92nd in that stat. I can see Army beating North Texas, even after losing in the regular season, because Bradshaw the Army QB has gotten into a better groove (see: Army/Navy) and won’t throw 4 interceptions this time around, and Army hopefully won’t lose 3 fumbles.
