    Everybody always has an 'assignment' on defense against any offense - at least at the start of the play. But most times, once the play develops, everyone's assignment generally becomes "take a proper pursuit angle and tackle the guy with the ball".
    I think the emphasis on calling the defense of the TO 'assignment football' is based on coaching the defenders to stay with their initial assignment beyond the limits of football instinct -- even when it feels like that assignment is pulling them out of the play, and to trust the guys with the other assignments to make the play. If your assignment is the pitch man, it's counter intuitive to force yourself to run -- away in some cases, from the QB who's 6 feet away from you who actually has the ball. For a large part of the play, instead of "tackle the guy with the ball" it's "forget who has the ball and tackle your assignment". That's a hard adjustment to make. An analogue would be to require a cornerback to hold tight coverage 80+ yards downfield or to continue pass coverage once a QB has scrambled 10 yards downfield.

    I know you know all this, but I think that's why they beat that terminology to death.
    Sincerely,

    P.S.: Have a nice day!

    Right, but I don't know what about an option offense could cause a defender to go into "stop what you're doing and go after the guy with the ball" mode prematurely.

    **Looks directly at the camera like a deer in the headlights** "Certainly, you want to play your brand of football. You sit there and want to make them make mistakes, while playing mistake free ball. Certainly you want to be able to shut down the run and make them one dimensional in the throw game. Then you can be physical and have 11 men attacking the football. If we do that and score more points than them, we certainly have a chance to sit there and come out with a win at the end of the day."

That's what my notes say here . . .

    At any rate, I'm sure Georgia State would prefer to avoid either of those scenarios this afternoon. We'll see how that works out for the Golden Eagles at Paulson Field beginning in just a few moments.
    You’re absolutely right, GATAlac. It’s not a come-from-behind offense.
    Thanks, Rastabot!

    He didn’t mean that literally. Hopefully neither did you.

    If you had used the word box count I would probably have started shaking.

    ** Also, my wife and brother-in-law bought tickets + my Uncle (season ticket holder) is bringing his son who recently graduated from basic training from the Naval station at Great Lakes. Just to show how dedicated Eagle Nation is, my Uncle drove yesterday from Kingsland, GA to Charleston, SC to pick him up and will drive to Statesboro to bring him to the game and then drive back to Charleston after the game and then drive back to Kingsland tomorrow!

    I was looking at the thread Talon started on their board a few minutes ago. I hope we blow them out of the water. They might have the most arrogant fans in the conference.
