Is this kind of thinking breaking through? Are we going to have a "revolution" in the way the game is played like we have in baseball?
For every one of those HS coaches, there are about 30 who still run a team like mine did, running the motherfucking Wing-T, feeding the fullback 30 times a game, and avoiding the throwing game like each pass was negative points. (despite my HS having a QB who had to be one of the most accurate in state history [29 TD, 0 int, 75% comp%]. They were still pretty successful thanks to some extremely skilled running backs and a big O-line, but we could have been so much better)
I think there might be a small amount of drift towards the use of these stats, but its not much. Nate Jackson wrote a fairly good piece about this the other day on deadspin: http://deadspin.com/...te-eric-mangini

Shit. I literally have the book laying by my bed but cannot for the life of me think of the name. It's basically freakonomics for sports. Anyhoo, there is a section about a HS coach that never punts and some other things he does that break "sacred football tradition".
Pete, you talking about the book "Scorecasting"? I'm reading it now; interesting read so far

Math hurts. But, yes, go for it every time.
Another take on the "go for it on 4th Down, dammit" hypothesis, this time with numbers and equations! http://bit.ly/qn10nR
Everytime that the Hawkeyes punted within the opponents 40-yard line this year I was about ready to drive to the game to hit Ferentz on the head with a big stick.
