Gary Crowton using Video Game software to help him coach
LINK

quote:

In other, more physically tolling sports, video games are also evolving into a studying tool. The LSU football team adopted the use of this gaming technology midway through last season. XOS Technologies and EA Sports created the game the Tigers use. The software tracks a team's tendencies in different down and distance situations throughout a game and a season. From there, LSU can practice running plays (with their full playbook on the game) against a defense with the same tendencies of a Florida, Alabama or a Tennessee. "Gary Crowton uploaded our full playbook onto the game - every formation and every variation of every play," said LSU video coordinator Doug Aucoin. "Being able to present that onto the screen really helps us teach the offense to some of the younger guys in the program." And, of course, the plays a defense will run can be controlled, too, as LSU is able to upload what plays they want their opponents to run, as well.

Does Lee Corso's voice come in about halfway through the second quarter and yell at Crowton, "hey assclown, you have a substandard offensive line and QB with a slow release. Stop running 15 yard routes with no drop off patterns."

This is BS. The Tigers coaching staff needs to quit worrying about what the other team does and focus more on what they are going to do to other teams.

Here's the problem. During real games the other team won't run the defenses we want them to run. Damn cheaters.

The moron that was the coordinator for Archer...Zaunbrecher? Did a similar thing with a computer program. He called his plays based on the probability of success against the opponent's tendencies in a given down and distance. For those of you not old enough to remember those years....it didn't work out so well.

The other team has the same game and they will break tendencies...it all comes down to execution of the play called.

No, but there was a flaw in the game where if you threw screen to the running back and he was tackled in bounds late in the game, and timeouts remaining, the game would automatically give you the timeout and stop the clock.

See? That explains while Miles and Crowton didn't think they needed to actually signal it to the refs!

Look at the bright side, if the software allows the coaches to go in and add values to their players attributes (like speed, throwing accuracy, pocket presence), then Gary Crowton will finally be able to develop a Quarterback.

I'm guessing there isn't a "clock it" play on there.
