these are my boys from last year:

Awesome stuff coach! I love the smash mouth run mentality out of your spread! That is very close to how I called it but with less depth of my backfield.

nt has to shade if qb is 7 yards deep...worked in favor for us SAB blocking...the head ref of my league told me this in week one...my center was facing a beast of NT and was stalemating  but on occasion made our center snaps inconsistent...he told me back your qb up 2 yards and ill have to call a refs time out to tell the coach what the NT must do...low and behold the game was over after that bc we scored 3 times in less then 4 minutes

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

Our HC is a D guy.  We've discussed pro's and con's of SW (balanced and UB) and DW but he's the boss right now.  As long as we are in every game, the kids are being coached well and loving the game I'm good.  Besides I'm pretty intrigued by this as well.  Maybe it's a mistake but I'm gonna be as prepared as possible to give it a go.

BC,

The refs in my league are clueless about this rule.  They apply it to any shotgun situation, so if the QB is only 3 yds back they don't allow you to cover the C.  I plan on brining it up at the league meeting with the refs at beginning of August.  I tried to tell a ref last year that the NFHS rules say 7 yards back, but of course that converation went nowhere.

Had my 1st practice today.  We start in full pads, which i know may not be the best thing in the world, but I can't change it.  As I said when starting this thread I thought we wouldn't have any speed but low and behold of our 9 new players 3 are absolute burners and 3 are well above average speed.  Sometimes you just get lucky.

Thanks to BC's suggestion I found my center for the shotgun snap today (last year's FB) and 3 athletic lineman to be pulling tackles.  My QB decision is down to 2 players that are not my son 😉 and I believe I have my FB and slot receivers.  Overall I think a productive day of work for the boys and coaches.  Running the spread is new to all of us and we still have hurdles to overcome.  We have our 1st scrimmage in 2 weeks against a team that hasn't lost a game in 2 years so we'll definitely know where we stand going into our 1st game.  Tomorrow we should be able to begin to install our FB Trap.

Does anyone know how good the YouthFootballGuru DVD'S are?  I was looking into getting some DVD'S but wanted to know if the DVD'S were worth the money or worth getting them? Any opinions?

I have heard they are very good. The only negative I have read about is that his teams are select so more talented than the average youth team.

Coach Mike

What is beautiful, lives forever.

I have the DVD's and IMO they are worth it if you are serious about running the spread.  What strikes me about them is they are geared to beat what youth defenses are likely to do.  We are currently in our 2nd day of trying to install this for my team of 10-11's.  It's not something that you can just throw together and takes some work.  A lot of the work involves convincing folks it can be done.  The blocking schemes are simple and there is a base of about 6 plays that can be run from different formations with motion to disguise and create confusion in the defense.

Hey fellas.. Im looking to install Big Coconut's spread system into our offense. Anyone who just started using the system or who are currently using it, have any advice for me. We are a D2 team with pretty good players.

The Wishbone craze didnt... so I'd have to say no. Things change progress recycle I suppose.

I saw Joe Paterno on Charlie Rose a few years back. He credits Mac Brown for saving his career right after UT won the National Title with V Young.

Penn State had fallen into mediocrity so Coach Brown being an old time friend realized the Joe Pa must go whispers had become pretty loud. So he invited the entire Penn Sate staff to Austin and opened everything up to them.

The next season Penn State had a top 5 finish in the Nation.

Coach Mike

Depends on what he means by "lasts" football trends come and go, but they really dont dissappear, they just go on in smaller pockets of the country.  Though we're starting to see more and more teams go to ao pro-style offense in college, I dont think we'll see the end of the spread anytime soon. 

Or we will see an evolution of it

Coach,

How did it go this year? Did you stick with the system? If so any lessons learned or advice you would like to share. I just picked up the DVD set myself in preparations for next year.
