Re:Defense Coaching

Post by ArmyBN82 » Fri Apr 05, 2019 11:30 am

Interesting interview with Captain Cole Christiansen where he comments on the change in Coaching from Coach Bateman to Coach Loos. Christiansen supports the impression I had from the Houston game and that under Coach Loose the defense this year will continue to build on what has been done in the past but be more aggressive.

“It’s so fun to play, especially for Coach Loose. I love Coach Bateman, but I think now the difference that with Coach Loose, everyone out here feels comfortable and not that we didn’t with Coach Bateman, but everyone is playing fast and not nervous when they are stepping which means that everyone is playing fast an aggressive.”

“I’m excited about it and our defense could be even better this year or that’s my hope at least that’s the plan. But we have to keep working the way we are working and try to get better every single day.”

It appears to me that Coach Monken system and development of Coaches as well as players provided
continuity in the system. Even after losing a tremendous Coach like Bateman and graduation of starters - interesting to again hear the confidence in the process and belief by Army players and fans that with hard work and some luck we could even be better this year.

Navy told to focus on Offensive Line

Post by ArmyBN82 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:34 am

Interesting perspective from Navy Football News - that I don't quite fully agree with citing the real problem is that their problems really stem from their offensive line being pushed around and pushes for reliable passing game to hit big plays.

"This program can’t expect to field Alabama-type athletes on defense and smother opponents with regularity. Navy has to be a high-scoring team to put itself in position to win most (not all, but most) of its games. The Mids ceased to be high-scoring last season. A 25-points-per-game average will, in this era of modern football and spread passing, always be a disaster for Navy.
The offensive line — against Army and Air Force and on too many other occasions — did not impose itself on the opposition."

This would be to leave turn a bit away from the run the clock down triple option that worked so well when Navy beat Notre Dame limiting them to a handful of possessions. As cited in other threads on this forum Navy Coaching is in fact retooling around Malcolm Perry and Coach Niumatalolo has mentioned bringing more run-and-shoot passing into Navy’s offense. Navy also has Coach Billy Ray Stutzmann from Hawaii to bring more of that philosophy to Navy. IMHO May be effective down the road but think it will take awhile to instill and if it doesn't work well or Perry gets hurt - they have to "retool" to another QB. Thoughts?

I would think that this analyst will just be an advisor to the staff based on his previous knowledge of the game during the week and not on game day, sort of like the old term of "skull sessions".

Offensive Line Team Work

Post by ArmyBN82 » Tue Apr 09, 2019 12:12 pm

Great article on OC Coach Davis and his development of a close cohesive and versatile offensive line. You really get a sense as to the master he Coach Davis is in developing the mind and person of the MOB - malicious offensive line brotherhood .

Despite the loss of Bryce Holland and Austin Schuffert and looking to both Herndon and Jack Sides switching positions the Army line should be even more productive than last year. Coach Davis gets them prepared for any eventuality. From making them do joint boating exercises (a mini boys in the boats :) to "The offensive line meetings each offseason are tailored to ready them for the game of musical chairs that takes place in filling open roles. Every lineman enters with a notebook, and most times, they leave with full pages." "We really take pride in our offensive line room to know every position no matter what,” Herndon said"

I agree with QB Kelvin Hopkins on his assessment "“When the fall comes around, they’re going to be the best unit on this team.” Would be interested to know if there is similar information on the work and cohesiveness on the Defensive line?

Navy New Defense

Post by ArmyBN82 » Wed Apr 10, 2019 11:09 am

During the spring scrimmages Navy has continued to role out its new Defense under new DC Coach Brian Newberry. The new defense has included a number of players being moved to new/old positions and a new defensive scheme.

"Newberry characterizes his defensive alignment as a 4-2-5 with 3-4 principles and it features a position known as “bandit.” Rising senior Elan Nash appears to be the top bandit after starting all 13 games at striker in 2018. Newberry described Nash as a “real reliable player” and said he’s been solid during spring camp."

As expected the defense is being asked to be more aggressive and to to learn the new system which will take some time. - "They are asking the Midshipmen to play fast and with great energy, even if they are still unsure of assignments."

Will be interesting to see more reporting on the progress of the Army Defense which there again is buzz about them being even better than last years despite another set of significant graduations.

ARMY Seeks Continued Excellence

Post by ArmyBN82 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 6:41 pm

As ARMY work continue their status and recognition as the nation’s best service academy football team eyes especially watch the defensive line and backup QB. We are however better than Navy and Air Force who are rotating QBs especially Navy who is going back to Malcolm Perry and redesigning their offense to his skills.

Meanwhile Coach Monken understands the challenges and takes a realistic perspective about the Spring Practices "Hopefully, we got some of those guys in place and they’ll be able to contribute and help us in the fall,” Monken said. “If that happens, then we probably accomplished what we hoped to this spring, but it’s hard to say how much we’ve accomplished.” Spring Scrimmage game about to kick off

Air Force Coaching Changes

Post by ArmyBN82 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 12:08 pm

An interesting note that Air Force lost it's fourth coach this season as one of the original members of Coach Troy Calhoun’s coaching staff at Air Force is departing for Vanderbilt.

"Outside linebackers coach Matt Weikert made the announcement on social media early Saturday morning, as he becomes the fourth Falcons assistant to leave during this offseason and third to head for a team in a Power Five conference."

While the timing is a bit off the Coaches leaving Air Force similar to the case of Army's Coaches who left- are going to bigger schools and opportunities. Unlike the case of Navy Coaching where they pretty much cleaned out all their defensive Coaching to revamp and also made significant changes to Offensive Coaching as they retool their offense to fit Perry and spread the ball more.

Coach Monken for Life

Post by ArmyBN82 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 12:05 pm

Interesting quick recognition and comment on -Coaches in the NCAA who merit contracts for life at their school programs. One of the few cited was our own Coach Monken - NCAA Coach of the Year and cited on Twitter in preparation for GOT - "Jeff of the House Monken, the First of His Name, King of the Black Flag, Lord of Michie, Breaker of Streaks, Sinker of Ships, Warrior on the Hudson, the Second Singer and Warden of the Brotherhood." :) Over reaction or under reaction? I know I think we are blessed to have the Warden of the Brotherhood!

"Jeff Monken, Army — This is not a one year overreaction. Monken has led Army to unprecedented new heights with 29 wins over the past three seasons, including three consecutive bowl victories for the first time in program history. Only three times since 1970 have the Black Knights posted three straight years above .500 and Monken will hit No. 4 in 2019 with returning star quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr".
