Luck Favors the Prepared
There are lots of fun stories about drawing a play in the dirt in a last second drive to win a football game. There is a time and place for that and it tends to be on elementary school playgrounds at recess. Professionals do not draw plays in the dirt. When I coached football, we never put anything on the game field that wasn’t first practiced during the week leading up to the game. It took discipline to stick to the game plan. There is a time and place for innovation and game day is not it. If the team is relying on game day innovation, they did not do their job on the practice field.
