There is a grapevine in the ranks of all the services. The men make it their business to find out who their officers are. There is a special respect for those who would carry the ball on a football field, throw a wicked block, or make a dead-stop tackle.

“THE TRIPLE OPTION/VEER/WISHBONE IS A BALL CONTROL, GRIND IT OUT TYPE OF OFFENSE. IT RELIES ON TIME OF POSSESSION, SLOWLY WEARING DOWN ITS OPPONENT. IT LOOKS TO STAY CONSERVATIVE ON FIRST AND SECOND DOWN SO IT CAN STAY AHEAD OF DOWN AND DISTANCE. IT ALSO DEPENDS ON LUCK AND VISCIOUSLY GOING AFTER DEFENDERS’ KNEES.”
DJ – so who is the fool who made that quote. It could have been any announcer who did a Navy game in the last eight years – or any opposing coach for that matter. Let the world keep believing it. It helps Navy when they make up their defensive game plan.
DJ, you obviously know nothing about cut blocks. They are perfectly legal; they are used by every team and any player worth his salt knows how to defend against them. Can’t stand getting your clock cleaned, can you?
