A few weeks ago ESPN ran a piece on offensive coaches collaboration, this is a great read on defense.
 
 


Michigan coach Brady Hoke witnessed the zone blitz as an innovation in the 1990s. These days, more teams are using man-free coverage (man-to-man with the free safety deep) and disguises in the secondary.
 
"The game keeps evolving from an X's-and-O's standpoint," Hoke said. "It's always that cat-and-mouse, who's going to be ahead of the curve?"

MSU is certainly the exception not the rule. Kind of like Baylor (not for long with their recruiting) on offense. For the most part though, the teams at the top of the rankings are the ones with the top players.

Michigan State sets the standard for defense in the Big Ten these days. The Spartans are the first team since since at least 1985 to lead the Big Ten in both total defense and rushing defense for three consecutive seasons.

"I don't think there's a team in the country that does what we do," Narduzzi said. "We're more cutting edge [with] zone pressure. We're cutting edge with how we play our quarters [Cover 4] coverage. It's adapted to if you play Stanford, a two-back, two-tight end team, or an empty team. We do a lot of things people don't do and to be honest, people are trying to copycat it all over the country."


Mattison should have this posted up in his office and read it every day he walks in…

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.
