I bought his book Installing Football's 4-3 Over Defensive Front and while it is pretty simplistic (only 76 pages) it has good information and definitely would be of value for coaches looking to go to the Over.

I have listened to a good amount of his stuff. I can say that he is knowledgeable and his entire career is talking / making football content. While I do not know about his paid football program, the guy does know his stuff.
I’m like others. Enjoy the podcast but haven’t done any of the paid stuff.
I do know on a podcast he had said if you purchase a system you can send him some film and he will give some feedback. It’s got to be a bonus that you are getting the opportunity to communicate with him where some systems it’s just information you are getting.
Being involved with football should never ruin someone’s day.

I love his stuff, I highly recommend anyone who coaches at 90% of high schools that aren’t in the upper echelon of TX/GA/CA/FL to at least make yourself familiar with it. He’s just a good dude who will never hesitate to help you even in Twitter DM’s or emails. I believe he’s even on here.
I’ve paid for his stuff, and i can tell anyone who’s on the fence about it that it’s worth every last cent. While you get plenty of good info from the podcast and his YouTube channel, his paid material is a simplified deep-dive into his system.
The funny thing is that his stuff, while detailed, is so simple that even if you don’t run it, you can pick up fantastic cues that you can put into your offense. In September of 2018, I remember hearing him say, “I just tell everyone on our gap schemes to block the backside number” and I immediately used this cue with our kids that midseason and our gap schemes took off from there.
I have not subscribed, but I have listened to a number of his podcasts. He is a high school coach talking to high school coaches. IMHO, his material/ideas can be used at the high school level.
Joe is a good friend and neighbor, and frequent guest in my home. 2 years ago he worked on a great staff, that is was my pleasure to help (offensively). He then became very successful as a Head Coach locally. HIGHLY recommend ALL his stuff!

It means if you're running the ball to the right and blocking a linebacker, block his jersey number on the left (the inside number). The idea that is with high school defenses they tend to either over run plays, or be heavy spill teams. Meaning if you can hit a little cutback seam because you block the backside number instead of the play side number, you get more yards. We tell the running backs the money's inside.
Also, thank you everyone. I didn't know what I was going to find when I opened this thread. Have not been on here in a while.
