So fellas what would you do here if this was your schedule.....we are a program in the middle of a major rebuild/rebrand.....
Game #1 at 0-10 team (we beat them 56-6 last year) Game #2 vs. 1-9 team (only team they beat was the 0-10 team from Game 1) Game #3 vs. 6-4 team (NEW COACH just hired) Game #4 vs. 1-9 team (NEW COACH not yet hired) Game #5 vs. 4-6 team (NEW COACH not yet hired) BYE WEEK
All familiar opponents but much more beefed up competition.
We lost to teams 3-5 last year, but 3 and 4 graduated a lot and lost their coaches.....so how do we prepare at this point? I am assuming with the 0-10 and 1-9 teams to say they would stick in what we have them on film doing last year is well a stretch. then 3 new coaches.......so any thoughts on that one?
I’d get some film just Incase there is something there that is totally different than what you see. In the regular season this year it’s possible we see very little 10 personnel. If we knew we had a team that was predominantly in 10 we’d work it in for the offseason/preseason in scout. I don’t think the first time you see something should be the week you see it. We play one DW team but we will work on it in July.
Maybe that’s the wrong way to do it but I know we’ve handled contrarian offenses for our area better because of doing it like that than we used to. I would say we may defend the contrarian teams in our area as well as most anyone that doesn’t simply out talent them.
If you don’t see something that requires some attention, I wouldn’t worry about it. You could spend time working for a coach who you think will rum triple and he ends up running the air raid.
Long story short we try to prepare for what we may see but we’re not in detail until we play them as far as really trying to scout that team.

I wouldn't be concerned about the last three weeks as you'll have plenty of film to pick through.
I would be worried about the first two weeks and the kids staying focused knowing they're playing two chitbird teams straight off of the bat. I'd like to say that we'd prepare for those two teams like any other but, in all reality, we'd be putting the screws to the kids before those games. We'd go overboard on the film with the kids, hammer them hard on all of the little things during practice and do everything we could to keep them focused. It'll be easy for some of the kids to walk into two-a-days with a laid back attitude with two weak teams straight off of the bat.
