Spring Football Primer And Why The South Will Continue To Rise
Two interesting points here from Smart Football on Spring Football or as @TimBrando likes to call it "Spraaang Football".
1. The state of Ohio does not allow high schools to have Spring Football (and I would assume other northern states like Michigan don't either). Urban Meyer is not happy about this and based on his popularity in the state don't be surprised to see this changed during his tenure. I don't know how the Midwest plans to catch the South in football when they don't allow spring practices. You can see Meyer's speech to the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association below. I wonder if Brady Hoke was invited?
2. Changes in the amount of contact allowed during spring practice gave rise to the spread offense which you can practice year round in 7 on 7 drills.
Why Do We Have Spring Practice?
