Pitt: Over the weekend, Pitt offensive coordinator Matt Canada called a screen pass to the left tackle. Offensive line coach John Peterson's tackle hauled in the pass and took it down the sideline, behind a beautiful convoy of his fellow bigs, for 6 points. This is majestic.
Orlando Predators (Arena): The Orlando Predators, who won two ArenaBowl titles in their 25 seasons of existence, have announced that they are suspending operations "due to the reduced number of teams remaining in the Arena Football League as well as pending disagreements with the League," the Orlando Sentinel points out.
Malzahn's Sugar: Ironically, many no huddle coaches have found advantages in the form of using a "sugar" huddle in order to infuse panic at defenses. The huddle itself is a quick gathering of offensive personnel at or around the line of scrimmage with the intention of keeping the defense off guard. Tommy Shoemaker, the head coach at Central Arkansas Christian School (AR), studied the same four concepts Gus Malzahn was using in his sugar huddle system and has implemented them into his own tempo package, which he details in this exclusive clinic report on XandOLabs.com.
