Growing up, I've always been fascinated with how things actually work, not just from a broad perspective, but the intimate details. When it comes to my passions, I've always been a bit more ambitious and intense than sometimes is really called for. That ambition struck a nerve when it came to football, and that's part of the motivation for this site.

I started coaching high school football back in 2006. Since then, I've been regularly doing things to help expand my knowledge on football, from attending camps and clinics, to watching more and more film. I've had great opportunities and learned many things from many, many great coaches, including numerous ones currently on Big Ten staffs. I've coached or assisted in every position group. Defensively, I've been a part of teams that have run 4-3 over and a 4-2-5. On offense, it's been anything from a single-wing to a pistol oriented spread attack, and a lot of things in between

Inside the Playbook: OSU's Two-Back Offense

+

Last week at Maize n Brew, we previewed OSU. I took a look at an offensive set that I expect to be a bit more common this year (though it was fairly common last year as well), with the Buckeyes utilizing two backs in the backfield (motioning the H next to Miller). I looked at the run plays and the sail concept that will often come from that. You can find more info on B1G schools, including OSU, at my blog http://breakdownsports.blogspot.com/
