Gotta plug my friend Tim Layden’s new book “Blood, Sweat and Chalk.” What are blogs for if not to plug away?
His book was a three-year project and he talked to so many great coaches. The book reveals a lot of the secrets of the coaches whose innovations changed the game and includes Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier.
Layden told me on my radio show that all of these coaches borrowed from somebody and that he believes the next new, big thing will be on defense.
As someone who doodles ball plays all the time, this was a great read. I highly recommend “Blood, Sweat and Chalk.”
