    If I was coaching Todd Blythe.

    First play of the game I would set him out wide right and put him in motion and move him to the slot. If the corner moves with him, they would be playing a man pass coverage. The second play I would line him up on the left side of the offense to see, if the same corner was going to follow him where ever he lined up. Overall I would use Todd to try to confuse the defense. I would put him in motion once in awhile to make the defense change their coverage. I would line him up on the outside, in the slot, and even in the backfield, where he could be put in motion to either side of the field. If the defense plays a man coverage and the corner covering him follows him everywhere, I would call some crossing patterns where Todd would run a crossing route with either the tight end or another wideout to try to pick Todd's coverage. At least once or twice a game, I would throw a deep ball to Todd, even if he was closely covered tolet him use his height to his advantage. What I would not do, is position Todd in the same position almost every play and let the defense dictate whether or not I was able to throw to Todd. Todd is a great weapon, he needs to be used.

    Re: If I was coaching Todd Blythe.

    If I was coaching Todd Blythe, I would just say, "Go up and get the ball, cause we're throwing to you all day." Sure we'll throw in a run, a pass to Barkema, a few over to Sumrall, let J.J. and Jason run the ball a bit, but mostly...we're throwin it to blythe.

    Re: If I was coaching Todd Blythe.

    Gentlemen,

    No NO NO NO NO NO. The other team knows that Todd is our main offensive weapon, they'll try to stop him. So our plan is to take him out of the offense, and run the QB draw.
    That's how we've gone to 5 bowls, and made the Iowa game a rivalry again.


    Sincerely,

    Dan McCarney

    ps Who is this Todd Blythe that you speak of??? Did he play for us???

    Re: If I was coaching Todd Blythe.

    Kent State has just a tremendous program. They're a great team and I expect them to give us a good battle. I have great respect for everything they do over there. We'll just have to be the most improved team in the nation next week...enter McCarney cliche A, B, C....
