New Research: Developing an All-Inclusive Defensive ID System – With the multiple looks that Dakota State University (SD) offensive line coach Sam Gooding received from defenses each week, it was clear that the classic “covered/uncovered” principles in his zone schemes could not always account for every player in the box. So he and his staff had to scrap his former and devise an entirely new system, which is divided into three categories: the base “Front” (Under, Okie, etc.), the “Box” (number of players at LB depth in the box), and “Tags” (different descriptors for small adjustments). In X&O Labs clinic report, Coach Gooding details how this naming system allowed his players to quickly analyze a defense pre-snap and adjust their blocking rules accordingly.
