I recently noted that I expected Matt Rhule would probably employ a 3-2-6 dime package pretty extensively at Baylor next season. Then I noted on Inside Texas that Todd Orlando would likely do the same with the Texas Longhorns’ roster.

The dime package is the new nickel.
I’ve also got a piece up on the insanely talented Colorado Buffalo signal-caller Steven Montez, who was largely ignored by the entire Big 12 because no one does much scouting in El Paso. Check that out over at Football Study Hall.
If you enjoyed the first “expansion candidate” podcast with Coach Cody Alexander of matchquarters, and you should have, you’ll definitely enjoy the next episode featuring Coach Joe Willis. Coach used to go head to head with Chad Morris at Lake Travis (which he shares about) and that experience helped him fashion Cedar Park high school into a state power that appeared in the state title game twice over three years with a ring to show for it. Now he’s coaching in the Metroplex at Colleyville Heritage, which was the home to San Diego St QB Cam Roane last year and current UCLA commit, WR Kam Brown currently.
Willis and I talked about the current issues facing Texas high school recruiting, the misleading and unhelpful nature of 7 on 7 competitions, IMG academy, and the upcoming Big 12 season.
