You Can Do More: Jeff Floyd 12/16
By Jeff Floyd former Truman High School Head Coach
What does a well-coached team look like?
Doing all the “little things” needed to be successful.
You would assume that all SEC teams, especially two that were both ranked in the top 5 in the country would be equally “well-coached”.
Well not so fast.
Early in the college football season Alabama (1) played Texas A & M (5)… a game which featured these two top ranked teams… Alabama ended up cruising to a 33-14 victory.
It is my contention that while both teams’ rosters are filled with great athletes, only one of these teams was truly well-coached… only one of these teams did all the “little things” needed to be successful.
In a clip from the show SEC Film Room, Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson discusses how they picked up several “tells” from the A & M offensive line… specifically how their offensive tackle’s stance gave away if the play was a run or pass. (Thanks to Coach Cooper - @GorillaMyscles for helping me locate this clip)
This is basic stuff.
Maybe it is no wonder that A & M lost three straight games after this.
And guess what Alabama Coach Nick Saban said his team was going to focus on during the bye week following their defeat of Texas A & M?
Needless to say, Alabama is a well-coached football team.
