  • Even if you don't play exclusion, don't bid blackwood with a void
    on Oct 26, 2011

  • The Familiarity Factor in Georgia Tech's Triple Option and Asbury-Gannon Swedish Canape
    on Sep 26, 2011
    Every time I watch a Georgia Tech football game on TV, the announcers talk about how the Georgia Tech wishbone, triple option offense is so difficult to defend. Part of it is because they are good but they do have an inherent advantage of unfamiliari...
  • Is it a slam try is a search for the best game?
    on Sep 15, 2011
