Another good one via Coach Bill Mountjoy:
Schemes and plays don’t win games. Execution wins games. You want a game plan that confuses your opponent, but if it also confuses your own players, you will lose.
Cleverness is enemy of execution. Thinking is way too slow to work at the highest levels of performance. Players need to stop thinking and react, using finely honed instincts developed through experience.
Never deal with hypotheticals. You’ll kill yourself. I could have nine million different scenarios today. I don’t deal with all that. I just deal with what reality is.
Chip Kelly at the 2009 Coach of the Year talk: “With our inside zone play. We get so much practice time and so many reps that we can handle all the scenarios that come about. Instead of trying to “out-scheme” your opponent, put your players in an environment where they can be successful because they understand exactly what to do”.
