Anybody see the clip with David Pollack and Bama LB's?

The LB's said they watched the linemen' hands to see if they were heavy or light on their hands, and also which way they leaned to determine what the play would be and which way they needed to move. I'm pretty sure our guys didn't do that last year. Lots of times they were looking at each other and waving their hands in puzzlement when the ball was snapped.

I didn't know they could do that. Is that common knowledge? If my memory is correct, when the linemen were heavy on their hands, then it was a RUN, otherwise a PASS. Also, when the guard reacted, they knew where they needed to run to. If he popped up, they knew it was a PASS and moved to the needed spot. Interesting. I guess I just enjoy the game and don't really understand the complexity of it.


That you Brad Scott?***

Yea, these things are common knowledge for any D1 coach

and I'm sure they teach this to their players.

I know in high school, we were always taught to watch the guards, because they would take you to the play.

see? I didn't know how they did that. I always like a great D, but can never really understand how it gets that way.

Our guys were trained to look over to the sidelines, if steele was jumping around waving his hands wildly, then they were about to snap the ball. If he was light on his hands, then they were having taco night and hurry up and finish the game.

Hopefully venables will get these things corrected.

In high school ball you can't read as much except run or

pass, but with D1 O-lineman they have specific steps to take on each play and I guess you could read a lean or a tightened split based on what you saw on film. Obviously you can't read hands off of film, but you can determine a general play type and direction, which would allow you to narrow that down more by the formation of the backfield and personnel.

That being said, you still have to play within the defensive call from the sidelines, but that might lead to a quicker audible if you can watch that instead of having to try and remember what you are supposed to do on the defensive play.

Obviously you can see why we don't see this at the high school level. If a LB did this in high school, people would call it "instincts."
