Before moving to Gainesville in 1992 I had been a football coach for 28 seasons, four seasons in high school, one season at a junior college, three seasons at William and Mary, with Marv Levy and Lou Holtz, and five seasons at Ohio State with Woody Hayes. While working for Woody, I was the national recruiter and watched film on high school players from all over the United States. From 1976-1991 we coached in the National Football League at Philadelphia, Atlanta and San Diego.
Watching a quarterback sack evolve is really a fascinating process, even though the guy on the receiving end of the hit would beg to differ with that assessment.
Change isn't easy. People tend to like things the way they are, or least prefer them to the great, wide unknown. With the familiar, at least one knows what to expect. And what's familiar is also sacred when you're talking about football.
