Notre Dame: Head coach Marcus Freeman has set the record straight on his comments about his alma mater Ohio State.

Structuring Non-Pressure Side Run Fits in a Multiple Fire Zone Pressures: As an 83% blitz team vs 21 and 22 personnel groupings in run heavy situations, the staff at South River High School (MD) has to be very conscious of where it is setting the pressure side vs non-pressure force elements. So, when teams utilize 20 or 11 personnel groupings on early downs, how force is handled to the weakside of the formation (particularly the B gap in Odd Front Spacing) is critical to getting stops and forcing a longer 2nd or 3rd down situation. Head Coach Steve Erxleben created a communication system for force, alley and crease defenders to the non-pressure side, which created multiple ways to force the ball and rely on alley fits and pursuit to “cage the run.” See it here.
