Middle Tennessee DC Nix’s Comments on Navy’s Offense

Now we are into bowl season,and the challenges this offense poses to defenses are still the same. We’ve seen similar comments already this season made by SyracuseMiamiDuke, Alabama A&MToledoClemson, and Florida. I’m sure the list could be considerably, longer, if I would have collected the articles from the entire season, or previous seasons. Consider all the teams over the past few years that have played this offense at the college level. You will see the same types of comments made again and againGive your team the same advantage.

MTSU defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix’s mantra that mixes yard work and football will find a suitable situation in the postseason.

“Coach Nix tells us, ‘Rake your own leaves,’” defensive end Steven Rhodes said. “It just means to take care of your own responsibilities, and don’t worry about everyone else’s job.”

Those instructions should ring true in the Dec. 30 Armed Forces Bowl when the Blue Raiders’ discipline will be tested by Navy’s precisely-run triple-option offense.

“Navy really competes and they are very discipline,” Nix said. “Every defense has its responsibilities. But the thing about option football is that it’s a one-on-one game. Each individual has to be perfect in their assignment or you have the chance at an explosive play on any snap.”

…………….“The No. 1 thing in that offense is discipline, and we have to be that way every play,” Byard said. “They will keep running the option and force the defense to play their keys very well.

……………..The assignments seem simple enough, but Navy has still gashed opponents for 322 rushing yards per game — second only to Auburn in FBS. Quarterback Keenan Reynolds, a former Goodpasture standout, has an FBS single-season record 29 rushing TDs this year.
