Monday Morning Tomahawks 04.13.09

I hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend.  We were working on a new strategy session piece but it's not finished and we didn't want to break it into two parts.

The baseball team took two of three games from the UNC Tarheels this weekend in very exciting fashion.  Here is the live blog from the first game.  Here's the second game.  And the third.  game.

Frank D has posted about the third game in the fanshot section. 

Andrew Carter has looks at the running backs, wide recievers, offensive line, and special teams.

Corey Surrency articles:  Bianchi, Chris at Smartfootball, Matt Hinton.

Daily quiz:  against 4 wide receivers, if the defense is accounting for all receivers, what is the maximum defenders the defense can deploy in the "box" while using 2 deep safeties?  One?  Zero?

Quote of the day from Homer Smith: The spread offense today features the running QB. Defensive problems come from not having a tackler ready for the QB at the line of scrimmage. . . . As long as running QBs keep winning the jobs, the spread will be the formation of choice. Someone has to tackle the QB. If that someone is looking for a post pass, the QB is going to have running room.

Quote #2:  I want guys who get operated on after the season.  I want guys who don't have any ego because nobody wanted them.  I can't have D***F****.  It's intelligence and intensity.  Guess who that's from?

Housekeeping update:  please download the Veoh web player from veoh.com.  I found a 4-hour tape that we will break down in segments in the coming months.  Hint:  only 153 people have this video, so get excited.
