    Gadget Plays

    Do the fake punts, reverse pass, flea flicker, etc. come from CPR or do you think those were Herman...basically I'd hate to have those go with Herman.

    Re: Gadget Plays

    Generally I think things like that are called by the head coach. The plays themselves are likely drawn up by the coordinator (or special teams coach for fake punts and fieldgoals). But I think Rhoads is the one that says "Run that one play where the guy does the thing with the ball."


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I hope we keep that throw-back wheel route in the book. I only saw it once this whole season, but in seasons past we used it. It seems to be high percentage and usually lots yardage.

    While the video quality is lacking this is a fake punt Navy pulled off versus Air Force this season. This is one of the best I have seen.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Those are a part of practically every offense; other than Ken O'Keefe's offense.

    Re: Gadget Plays

    I'm pretty sure Haley gives the green light... especially if its 4th down. Flea flickers and WR/RB passes(have we done a RB pass?) would most likely be Herman. But I would assume our new OC would also throw in wrinkles like that.

    Re: Gadget Plays

    Gadget plays have become a part of our identity. Paul Rhoads' signature wins have all been littered with these sorts of things, both on offense and on special teams. In a league where games are won with lots of offense, we're going to have to keep these sorts of things in the books to keep pace with more talented programs.

    Doesn't CPR stay closely connected with the Special Teams? I'm thinking he may even be the Special Teams position coach. I don't think we have to worry about losing our gadget plays with TH leaving. CPR seems to have a great sense about them.

    This was an awesome play. If the guy with the ball had stayed down for another second or two, he could have run halfway down the field before anyone knew he had the ball. The one guy runs right in front of him before he takes off.

    These guys really sold the fakes.
