The final score was Meteor Storm 57 and Pink Panther's 54. Both teams rushed for over 600 yards (Meteor: 699; Panther's: 627) and the kick returners of the Meteor tilted the game in the Meteor favor. Meteor kick returner/wide receiver #5 had two kick returns for touchdowns and finished the game with 249 kick return yards and recovered the second Panther onside kick.


So, the Final Four are set. Before the Angels of Avalon, Baja Blast, Meteor Storm, and Welsh Dragons play there will be an interim game between the Angels of Avalon and the Welsh Dragons. Both teams are undefeated. Neither team has played in 4 weeks and I need to give my brain a refresher course before the Playoffs begin.

I always show the offensive highlights and today I thought I'd show a few defensive highlights. In Touch Tackling the defender touches the ball carrier and the play stops. Not so in Stop-Forward-Progress Tackling. Initial contact is just the beginning. I've named the different types of Stop-Forward-Progress tackles as the T-Bone, the Merry-Go-Round, the Broadside, the Friendly-Fire, the Front End Realignment, and the Clog-up-the-Drain tackle.


Regardless of the type of tackle there are always a gang of defenders around the ball carrier. Gang Tackling is the most important reason I use Two-Deep Stacking on defense. Open Field Tackles like the one in the final clip are way-cool but they rarely happen.

Enjoy the Journey.  T43.  🏈♾️

The eliminated 92 bases are watching from their couches at home. 🛋️ RIP

Thanks Coach Collins. It's a labor of love. Do you remember this NCAA commercial:

“Almost all of us will be going pro in something other than sports.”

The point of the commercial is to remind high-level student-athletes that everyone doesn’t make it. 98% of them won’t make it. Hence, they will graduate and be professionals in their respective lines of work.

The NCAA guesses that 1% of D1 athletes ever go pro.

D1 athletes play at the bigger schools. Schools like Notre Dame, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Alabama. These athletes were the best in the country.

I started with 184 players and when I'm done I'll know — with confidence — I have the top players in their positions.

It's all part of the hobby for me. What did Mick Jagger and the Stones sing, "I know, it's only Electric Football, but I like it."
