I can only assume that when Daniel failed to connect on the crane kick in Karate Kid II that it wasn't done correctly, but Miyagi's words have come back to me since I guess it did work in the original Karate Kid. I have been a lifetime fan, but I wasn't really a player and I've never been a coach. That said, I've always been fascinated with the X's and O's of the game. Case in point, just yesterday I watched a 45 minute video titled "Complete ISO Series From The Spread" by an assistant coach of a D-III school. I found it, and most of those types of videos, fascinating. I really enjoy how there are differences in handling fronts or other ways of dealing with what the defense throws at you. As pretty as it looks drawn up and when you see it executed on film, there is still this whole "Jimmy's and Joe's" component that no matter how much you "do right" it can in fact be defensed. I was thinking maybe specifically of the 1988 and 1991 seasons and the Orange Bowls vs Miami where if you combined the two games we had 76 carries for 162 yards and three points. In those cases, were we not doing it right, or was it more the Jimmy's and Joe's? Were those Miami teams (8 to 15 spots in the poll difference) just that superior? Even beyond those drubbings, what are ways to tell if it's run correctly and it doesn't matter? Sorry for being scattered, it made more sense in my head going in...plus I thought I had a great title! Love to hear from the coaches or those way more in the know than me.
