NCAA Football=57 Days — The Evolving Fullback

An excellent piece at SB Nation Football Study Hall, The run game renaissance and the return of the fullback.

In the midst of the spread-option revolution that’s currently taking place, the fullback is again finding a role as the tactics of spacing out defenders and then out-flanking them has begun to find uses for players that can function as powerful bludgeons.

Having watched football formations evolve for over fifty years now and memories of some true tough guys that played fullback, it always amazed me that too often that position was schematically abandoned or minimized. In fact, for the past several years the All-American voting hasn’t even included the fullback position. I’m glad the author of the piece has recognized the position and acknowledged how vital it is to an offense.

OU Coach Stoops has always had a fullback in his backfield from J.D. Runnels in the early 2000’s, to the three they have employed for the past few years…Bird, Ripkowski and of course current fan favorite Trey Millard.

Who knows, with all the “evolving” that takes place in football, we may yet return to leather helmets and Split T formations in our lifetimes.

Independence Day 2013

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.  full text

in-god-we-trustSometimes I wonder if we have reached a similar tipping point with regards to our own federal government.  I also wonder where we would find such men as the founders of this republic, to lead, to communicate, and to educate the many who could not care less.

Our great Republic is in trouble.  Are there enough good men left who will stand?  We know that the Power to change the country does not reside in Washington, D.C., but in the same Creator who has endowed each of us with those certain inalienable rights, so eloquently expressed 237 years ago this day.  Stated with equal certainty is the official motto of the country, “In God We Trust.”

In these words I find comfort.  In God, I have hope.

To my friends and to the readers of this blog, have a happy and safe Independence Day.

 

So Confused

Back in the good old days, when I was just a young ‘honkey’, everything seemed so clear.

Now? I don’t know if I am a ‘creepy-ass cracker’(racist pejorative) or a ‘creepy ass-cracker’(homosexual pejorative) or a ‘creepy ass cracker.’(term of endearment?)

This video doesn’t ameliorate my confusion.
