Too many coaches are “DRILL HAPPY”. Joe Bugel said that when he first coached the O-Line for Woody Hayes at Ohio State, he came to practice with a large stack of 5×8 index cards containing his O-Line drills.
Woody told him “you are not in the entertainment business – toss those damned cards away & just teach the O-lineman how to drive block, reach block, & down block”.
How do you do this? No “drills” are needed – you just line a defender up on the blocker & just DO IT!
PS: You don’t need a bunch of boards, sleds, dummies, ETC. Those things are NOT found on the field on game day!!!
