LEARN YOURSELF SOMETHING: THE VIRGINIA TECH DEFENSE

New, 503 comments

The Index will be along in a moment, but as a part of a renewed emphasis on our community education component, we do what we can do to enhance your understanding of the beautiful and savage game of football. The only way we can do this, of course, is to pass along the raw info others actually use in making football what go boom, and there are few better places to start with this than the Blacksburg Boardmaster himself, Bud Foster. 

Foster''s playbook defense is summarized in this PDF, and while it isn't the whole thing you can get the basic concepts in a quick read and also learn the fun technique used on opposing offensive linemen by defensive linemen.

Target: V of offensive lineman's neck.

SOCK 'EM IN THE THROAT, TOMMY. When not crushing opposing offenses, Bud Foster does not sleep, and may be found constantly wakeboarding and looking awesome.
