|(image) December 10, 2009 - University of Florida junior Maurkice Pouncey has been named the recipient of the 2009 Rimington Trophy. Last month Pouncey joined former Gator center Mike Degory in becoming only the second player from the school to be named a finalist for the Rimington Trophy. He now becomes the first player from the University of Florida to receive the award.
“It’s overwhelming. It’s a great honor to be the Rimington Trophy winner and to represent the University of Florida as its first winner. I’m extremely humbled,” said Pouncey.
The Lakeland, Florida native anchors an offensive line that has allowed No. 5 Florida to rush for an average of 225.2 yards per game, as well as throw for an average of 217.2 yards per contest. Having started 40 games for the Gators, 29 of them consecutively, Pouncey was instrumental in solidifying protection for his offense in the running and passing game. He was recently named a First Team All-Conference selection in the SEC.
Pouncey has graded out a champion at 90 percent or higher in all of Florida’s games in 2009, including 98 percent in the first two games of the season. He was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance against Tennessee, when he checked in at a team-high 93 percent.
“Maurkice has been fantastic this year for the University of Florida. We are extremely proud to name him the winner of the 2009 Rimington Trophy. Congratulations to Maurkice and all the watch list candidates and finalists,” said Dave Rimington.
The 2009 Rimington Trophy presentation banquet will be held January 16, 2010, at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Neb.

What a great game for the Huskers and the fans. I have a petty gripe that has nothing to do with play calling, players ability, etc. Will someone at the University please get rid of these awful goofy two-tone mouthpieces? I first noticed these things in the Eric Crouch era and I hated them then. Everytime I see these awful things it looks like a Nebraska is fielding a team of hillbillies with half their teeth missing. Why don't we just put a big red clown nose on our quarterback. Most people will think this is not important...but you want your team leaders to look like leaders and not a goofy cartoon character. But I guess being two-toned did make it easier to find when Zac Taylor was hit so hard that his mouthpiece went flying out of his mouth. All I can say is that kid is tough! STAY TUNED FOR MORE RIVETING COMMENTARY...LOL! GO BIG RED!

3.5 million New Yorkers Stranded by Transport Strike
This Message from The MTA Web Site
As of 3 a.m. on Tuesday, December 20, 2005, the Transport Workers Union (TWU) called an illegal strike on MTA NYCT buses & subways throughout all five boroughs as well as on most MTA Bus Company routes (click on MTA Bus Company below for routes that are running). This is in addition to a strike action called at 12:01 Monday, December 19, 2005 by the TWU against two private bus lines in Queens: Triboro Coach & Jamaica Buses.
As a result of this illegal action against the MTA, travel options for MTA subway and bus customers will be limited as noted in the links below.
However, customers are reminded that it will take 24 hours from the outset of the strike action for MTA commuter railroad contingency services as outlined on this site to be in place. That will be in time for the Wednesday morning rush. (This amount of time is needed to reposition and reconfigure train equipment to provide special service as noted on the links below.)
Check this site regularly for the most up-to-date information about the implementation of these plans, check www.nyc.gov, or keep abreast through TV, radio, and newspaper updates.
From the Transport Workers Union (TWU) Website
New York Supreme Court Enjoins TWU
New York State Supreme Court Justice Theodore T. Jones has issued two preliminary injunctions against the International Union and Local 100 to prevent the union from "conducting, engaging or participating in, through any manner of any means a strike, work stoppage, sick-out, slowdown, or any other concerted activity with the intent of interrupting the normal and regular operations of the New Your City Transit Authority and the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Operating Authority."

Wed, 17 Aug 2005 15:42:00 +0000Rimington Trophy Releases Fall 2005 Watch List DALLAS (August 15, 2005) --- The Dave Rimington Trophy today released their updated watch list of top collegiate centers for the 2005 season. The pre-season watch list was released in March prior to Spring football. The revised watch list will be updated throughout the season in the weekly Rimington Reports. Awarded annually to the best center in the country, the Dave Rimington Trophy enters the 2005 season with a strong field of potential stand-out centers. “We are looking forward to an exciting season of college football. Our watch list candidates represent some of the most storied college football programs in the country and this season features a number of great match-ups between watch list candidates. All the centers on the watch list are unique leaders on their respective teams and I want to wish each of them the best of luck. This is going to be a very busy year for the Rimington Trophy. We have a number of impressive announcements regarding our future in the weeks to come,? said Dave Rimington. The Rimington Trophy recipient is determined by a consensus of the four All-America teams: The Walter Camp Football Foundation, America Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, and “The Sporting News.? An associate member of the National College Football Awards Association, the six-year old trophy is presented by Canon USA, MidAmerican Energy Holdings, and Black & Decker. The award is hosted by the Boomer Esiason Foundation. Michigan’s David Baas (2004 co-winner), LSU’s Ben Wilkerson (2004 co-winner), Virginia Tech’s Jake Grove, Miami’s Brett Romberg, Ohio State's LeCharles Bentley, and Nebraska’s Dominic Raiola are past recipients. Since its inception the Rimington Trophy Award has raised over $450,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which to date has raised over $40,000,000 for CF Research. Esiason, created his foundation in 1993 to support research and treatment of cystic fibrosis. Esiason and Dave Rimington were teammates on the Cincinnati Bengals from 1984-87. Rimington, the award’s namesake, was a consensus first team All-America center at Nebraska in 1981 and ’82 – years in which he became the John Outland Trophy’s only double winner as the nation’s premiere college interior lineman. The Sports Group also developed and directs the Heisman Winners Association (HWA), a limited liability company, which focuses marketing attention and opportunities on the Heisman winners as a collective group. TSG also currently works with and has worked with the John Wooden Award, the Senior CLASS Award, and the Driver of the Year Award as well as a variety of other professional and amateur organizations and companies.

Blocking Wide Rusher
1. Identify 3-5-7 step drop
2. Identify Launch Point of QB
3. Objective 3 step drop is to get defenders hands down...inside target -attack and cut- change up with slip block -place hands on chest and slip them down to knees and cut.
4. On 5 and 7 step drop - The wider the defender ..the deeper your kick step...Remember the wider the defender, the farther he is from QB ...Don't Panic
5. When kicking have inside target and bury your chin into your inside pec . This prevents you from losing control as you kick to defender.
6. Keep your shoulders square as long as possible before you turn and run with defender
7. If he tries to run the hump to QB and uses rip technique/uppercut, with your outside hand on defenders chest...take inside hand and place on defenders hip and widen him
Thu, 07 Jul 2005 20:05:00 +0000Awoke this morning and checked email and was shocked to see what had occurred in London. My prayers to our friends in the UK. Terrorism has only caused misery for all the parties involved in this conflict. As someone who worked on the 101st floor of the World Trade Center, lost many friends and only survived because I was out of town, I have to admit my mind went back to the hell of September 11th again. When will these idiots learn that these cowardly acts lead only to contempt and more death and destruction for the very same people they say they represent. In the meantime everything the cowards thought they could disrupt goes on: the G-8 conference continues, Tony Blair's leadership and the UK/US bond will most likely get only stronger.

Teaching Your Child The 3 Point Stance in Football
Show Notes June 4, 2005
Teaching 3 Point Stance
Feet Shoulder width or less
If right handed right foot stagger, if left handed left foot stagger
Toe to instep stagger (4"-6" back)
Start off with forearms on thighs, knees bent
Bring dominant hand straight down
Step away from child and check that toes are pointed straight, knees are not buckled, back straight and neck bowed with head up
If you continue to have problems- Try this tip: start child in 4 point stance (not too much weight forward) he/she should be able to lift non dominant hand up without assistance and place forearm on thigh.
Test: Weight Distribution
Once child is in stance take your hand and move athletes hand if he rocks forward or falls he has too much weight forward on hand.
The purpose of this drill is to insure athlete can step, pull and pass protect from this stance
In Goal line and Short Yardage-Athlete can add more weight to hand to increase power.
If teaching center stance-feet are usually a little wider and there is no stagger with feet. First make sure snap to QB is secure and then start practicing stepping and snapping.
Never let your child drop his head, Head is always up to help prevent neck injuries.
Fri, 27 May 2005 05:48:55 +0000The No Huddle Offense I was fortunate to have had Sam Wyche as my Head Coach in Cincinnati, this guy had a very unique way of looking at problems and some very ingenious solutions to these problems. Sam to me was a mad scientist that was so far ahead of the curve on innovation in the game of football it was ridiculous. Where most people would see problems, Sam saw opportunity. As a player I really enjoyed playing for him, because I learned all the time. He is a teacher and does a wonderful job teaching the nuances of football. Now, don't get me wrong Sam was as nutty as anyone I ever been around. But I really enjoyed playing for him. Although, at the time I didn't realize it as much as I have should. I could tell Sam Wyche stories until I was blue in the face and still have much more to say. The only thing predictable about Sam was his unpredictability. As a player you spend a great deal of time trying to figure out your coaches, so you kind of know what to expect. With Sam you just didn't know...which was good and bad. Regardless of what the Buffalo Bills say...the Bengals were the first team in the NFL to put in the NO HUDDLE offense. And if it wasn't for Boomer Esiason calling his good friend Frank Reich and raving about the offense I doubt seriously that the Bills would have used it as much as they did or at least they would have been much slower in implementing it. Defenses began to use situational substitution quite a bit in the early 80's, what happened was the defense would bring in the big run stopping lineman and linebackers on first and second down and then bring in their pass rushers and small backers/nickel guys on third and long situations. You would see a hoard of guys run in the game and another hoard run off the field. The defense was just trying to get their best personnel into the game to deal with the expected type of play that they would face. Sam saw a weakness in this and began exploiting it, what he saw was 16 or more defensive guys on the field at one time and that as you know is against the rules. So Sam exploited that by coming up with a simple "SET ALERT" play, When Boomer saw a platoon of guys coming onto the field and another platoon running off ...he would scream set alert and we would rush to the line of scrimmage and run a QB Sneak on the first sound. After a few "too many players penalties" and easy five yard gains for us the opposing team had to make a decision....do we stick with the run stoppers or do we put in the nickel or come with a hybrid. The only time we would let them make substitutions wa[...]
Tue, 24 May 2005 21:01:03 +0000First Downs and Scoring Touchdowns You have seen it over and over in pro football, a team is moving up and down the field with ease until they get into a situation that they need to get the final yard to score or get a first down. Why do great offenses stall in these situations. I have theory that I would like to share with you. First off I have to make a disclaimer...I haven't seen any statistics to back up my assertions that teams are having more problems in Goal line and short yardage situations. It is just anecdotal evidence witnessed on my part. My Theory: Over the past 20 years game of pro football has become more of game of horizontal movement on the offensive line. Instead of displacing players vertically, plays and players are taught to get movement horizontally. Simply put, players are not knocking back players they are moving opponents side to side. When the inside zone became a big part of most of most pro teams offenses in the mid eighties, lead stepping offensive lineman went out the way of dinosaurs. Now, it became drop and crossover steps that were being taught to pro offensive linemen. The inside zone play is a play that counts on 2 big guys getting a push at the point of attack and then one man coming off late for a LBer who most of the time will flow over the top of the rolling double team. The lineman who releases then simply screens LBer as he tries to come back on the cutback. The running back starts as if he is going to hit the tackle area and then if he sees flow over the top he will cut it back behind the two behemoth linemen. If he sees a hole in the tackle area he simply takes to the hole and takes what he can get. But why was the drop cross over steps taught in the first place. I think there were a couple obvious reason. First players were having a hard time moving defensive players vertically. It take a physical mismatch for a offensive lineman to move somebody back. The day of the 6'6 275lb NG was over. Now there were NG's and T's who were short and stout, in the 6'2 320lbs. range. These guys are built to stand their ground, it takes a hell of a man to push these guys around. Reason number two when you take a drop and crossover it reduces the chance of defensive lineman skimming the combo block when 2 guys are working together. When you lead step into a combo block there is a small area known as no man's land where because you are firing out and stepping forward and the player you are working with is taking a short lateral step, if the defensive line plays th[...]

Apology-No Bar Podcast
Sun, 15 May 2005 17:48:48 +0000My attempt to podcast at the bars last night was feeble...I guess I'm not ready to bring out the gear and use it openly. My good friends just laughed when I asked them and asked if I had lost my mind. So I put it all away and saved what ever dignity I had left..LOL Their reaction to my podcasting was reminiscent to the dog in the old RCA Victor logo...their heads were cocked to the side and they looked bewildered. I am sure when I left they had a good laugh. Has Ole Dave lost his mind? These guys never heard of podcasting and didn't share my enthusiasm for it. But they could recite the slogan on the front of a Budweiser bottle without looking at the bottle. Which is a good accomplishment LOL We went to Barry O's and tipped a few back and then went out to eat at Old Chicago Pizza. I had a great time...but until I find a way to do this without looking like a dork...I will be podcasting in the sanctuary of my home/hotel room.
Fri, 13 May 2005 06:48:22 +0000Hello everyone I will be doing the show in Omaha, NE until Weds. Just hanging in my hotel room tonight.
Mon, 09 May 2005 06:51:29 +0000As you can imagine, game day in the NFL is a special time for players. I thought I would give the listeners/readers a taste of what it was like. I guess the logical place to start this adventure is the night before the game. We would all meet at an area hotel about 5:30-6 pm the night before the game we then would check in and relax for about 1 hour or so. Then we would have a team dinner...this is when the boys would load up on a grand assortment of food. When I first came into the league steaks (yes plural) seem to be the food of choice. As time went on guys seemed to eating less steak and more pasta (Damn Nutritionists!). This was no place for the timid, regardless of what was the emphasis, there were massive amounts of food being consumed. All this was followed by the ice cream dessert station...Banana Split heaven. After the gluttony we then went into meetings and tried not to fall a sleep. In the beginning of my career this was pretty simple stuff...coaches would just give a speech to the team and then we would break off into groups by position...the offensive line would take a meeting room, the defensive line would take another and so on. As the years passed this simple meeting turned into a mini film festival, complete with highlight films with all the bells and whistles. Didn't have to worry about falling a sleep during this iMax presentation...LOL Then it was off to our rooms usually about 10 pm with bed check at 11pm we would try and get phone calls and the ticket situation all figured out. If the NFL wanted to increase productivity a simple way would be to have one guy in charge of acquiring and distributing tickets for the players. It is not the players can't handle it...it is the timing. The whole ticket situation comes to a head right before the game, when the players should be concentrating 100% on the opponent, many would be on the phone trying to dig up tickets for their guests or making phone calls from the locker room making sure their guests were squared away. It seemed that it was the skilled players (anyone that can score a TD) that had the most demand from friends and family for tickets... so I guess what I am saying it didn't affect me personally that much... Bed check-Not much to report here---Coach knocks on door, whoever is closest to the door answers, coach peeks in room and checks around, coach says good night and leaves. Most of the time they didn't even bother ent[...]

Tue, 03 May 2005 15:58:47 +00002005 NFL DraftThe Player Haters Another NFL Draft has come and gone. I always found it funny that as soon as a team makes a pick an ESPN talking head puts his 2 cents in about the quality of the pick. I realize that if you put the draft on TV you need someone to tell the listeners what's going on, but the whole concept of rating a teams draft at this point is just a load of crap. Most of these guys are rolled out once a year propped in front of a camera and then locked up in their homes digging up BS stats. No wonder they sound so disgruntled. Who the hell are these guys, if they are so damn smart why aren't NFL front offices beating down their doors trying to acquire these geniuses. I'll tell you why, this is all smoke and mirrors. From the Wizard of Oz: "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!!" It doesn't help that ESPN has about 8 hours of draft coverage, you can only say that player x has good speed and player y good strength so many times before that gets old. A solution would be to either break it off after 2-3 hours or get some new guys in the booth. Instead you are forced to embellish and make sure everyone knows you had breakfast with coach Z and that he said player x has a few problems, they never say what the problem is, unless it is already public. He doesn't say Bubba is a serious rinser/booze pig or just a drunk. Instead he says that Player x has had some personal problems. That is when that little voice in your head Mr. Subliminal starts whispering...oohh is he a coke head or roid guy or steals cookies from the Girls Scouts. He is now labeled and that is just the tip of the iceberg. What about medical privacy..The NFL is probably the only place I can think of that people are dissected in ways that would be illegal in most work places. Medical privacy HIPPA laws are thrown out the window. Not only are they not honored but are thrown out completely....(a rant for another day). On draft weekend and the days leading up to it, not only are the 255 players that are drafted publicly scrutinized...but all the players who are supposed to get drafted but don't are also included in this mix. Now think hard, when is the last time you watched the NBA or MLB draft and they said half of the crap they say about these college football kids. It is not right and should be stopped. Most of the[...]
