    Coach Bryant's 1975 Playbook

    The actual playbook in its entirety is pretty interesting. Coach Bryant's influence on the game is still strong.

    Bill Belichick’s father Steve Belichick is credited with being the first modern football “scout” and for creating and defining terminology that is still used to evaluate individual talent today.Bryant created terms and terminology to define techniques for entire schemes that are used at every level of football today.
    A good example is the “gap” system. The system used to number/letter the gaps between lineman and define techniques/alignments.

    When you hear an announcer say a lineman “plugged the A-gap” or that he’s lined up as a “three-technique” those are terms Bryant invented.
    Roll Tide Roll!!!

    I was entertained by the groin block in there. It’s amazing to me what has changed when compared to that era, but it is even more amazing what hasn’t changed much at all. Long live Coach Bryant.
