My Latest- Meet the New Boss; Just Like the Old Boss? The Return of Fort Schembechler Sunday, April 22, 2012 9:41 PM (permalink)

But after an improbable 11-2 season, capped off by a BCS Sugar Bowl win, one thing is clear- the fort is back.
 
The steel curtain has fallen, the blockade is in place, choose your metaphor but fresh information is a highly restricted commodity as we enter season 2 of the Hoke era.

Good, I love it. No need to give future opponents anything.

As long as his offense doesn't turn into another predictable machine I'm fine with him keeping information inside. There was very little to hide under Bo and Carr.

That was always the hilarious thing. We were hiding things like passing the ball on the early downs, throwing down field, end arounds, etc. The kind of things most offenses considered SOP. We hid slants and double moves......... just silly.
 
Coaching paranoia is predictable but largely unnecessary. If your playbook is diverse and/or changes with the opponent there's no real need to hide anything (doesn't stop most from doing it anyway).

Regardless, all Bo did was win.
Don't argue with me. I am the windshield and you are the bug.

It's not schemes and strategies they want to keep secret from opponents; very little of that matters in today's world. It's people like us and the media they want to keep out of their business because some things are left for just the lockerroom and not meant for anywhere else. If you have been inside a lockerroom with teammates, you know what I'm talking about.

Go Blue!!

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

Greg Williams found that out the hard way.
