    Default Game Planning

    What types of things do you look for when developing an offensive game plan? What is more important: personnel or x's and o's? Do you take things that other teams were successful doing and adapt to your system? Anything else? Any info is greatly appreciated. Any resources would be great as well.

    The first thing I look for is alignment. My old coach at lasalle was excellent at this. (So with any luck I learned something.) once I get that, I look at personnel. We played a team that aligned a130 lb linebacker on the weakside and their stud to the TE... needless to say, I ran belly until my fb was exhausted. Then I ran it with the back up. Other things I did included running Trey 100 and right 100. It's amazing how the defense spends just a little too much time determining if the TE is eligible or not. I look for ways to get the defense thinking... Once they're thinking they are no longer reacting.
    Follow some basic priciples too ... Establish the run to set up playaction ... Have a plan for after halftime (it always sucks when you game planned really well, but they adjust after the half). One coach on this board had mention he aligns in a crazy formation just before halftime so that the defensive coaches spend most of their time defending crazy bs planning for wha is really kicking their butt. Scout yourself and try to unpredictable.
    Good luck,

    One thing we look for at the start is the number of two way players, and that will help us decide on the offensive tempo we want to use.

    Coach Metz,
    What kind of things do you use for the second half? Do you hold a play or two, different formations? I like the idea about the crazy formation right before the half.

    We use the information gathered from this film study to develop our practice plans for the OL that week and also to give them idea of what to expect during the game. Like I said too much to list on post, but this should get you thinking in the right direction.
    Good Luck

    Default Game Plan

    Coach Williams: Not that my ideas are the "cutting edge" of planning but if you would like some ideas, I can recommend that you consider purchasing my book 101 Little Things That Can Make a BIG Difference I did a whole section on Game Planning. Go to my website, www.coachlewj.com, if you want to see more about the book.

    The coach who just presented his material on preparing his O line did an excellent job! But, boy, did he make me tired just thinking about all of that film breakdown! "Good for you Coach!" My approach was not as in-depth for each position. I look more for the over-all "feel" of what a defense is doing. Many times, unless a team has played you or another Wing T team, you are not going to see the defense that you see on the film. I want to know what their basic front is; what coverage(s) they use and when they like to blitz.
    I find that success comes in games by evaluating what they are doing and responding to that more than an in-depth analysis of prior games.

    But... just one way to do it! You have to find what works for you, Coach!

    In Christ,
    Lew

    Coach, Tra 100 is a TE/Wing Trips formation. SE left, TE/Wing and flanker Right. There's an article from the AFCA where Tubby discusses it a little. That's where I got it.
