Every now and then I get asked to promote products here on my site. I only do it with products that I would truly purchase myself, and products I believe in!! This book is just awesome! I’ve never seen anything like it, and highly suggest you get it now! The author is Alex Kirby, follow him on twitter.
This is a play-by-play breakdown of the National Championship Game that you won’t find anywhere else online.
Packed in this book are 250 pages of notes and diagrams of each play, information on the adjustments made in between drives, and explanations of not only what happened on the field, but why the coaches made the decisions they did.
Have you ever wondered what exactly coaches mean when they talk about halftime adjustments?
What kinds of things do offensive and defensive coaches look for during a game to get an idea of what the opponent is doing?
What is the strategy behind an offense’s opening drive, and where do you go from there?
Questions like these are why I put in the time to create this new book. What I wanted to do was give people a window into the thought processes of a coach on the sidelines and in the box over the course of a single football game, and I believe I’ve done that.
The book is written in chronological order, with each play diagrammed and a summary of the strategies used at the end of each drive. With almost 250 pages of diagrams and analysis of every play, this is a football fan’s dream come true, and you won’t find this level of detail anywhere else.
To give you an idea of what to expect, here are just a few of the topics covered in this book:
- How Urban Meyer structured his passing game to keep things simple for an inexperienced quarterback in Cardale Jones.
- How both defenses adjusted to offenses that were designed to create easy throws, especially to the short side of the field.
- Why Oregon struggled to run the ball consistently.
- Why the Oregon defensive line actually played a good game
- The progression of play calls and adjustments that led to Ohio State gashing Oregon with the counter play in the 2nd half.
