Stats, numbers, data, have always intrigued me. I try to use this type of information to better understand what we are doing well, and what needs to be an area of emphasis. Last night I took a look at the stats for this blog.
By far and away, the most popular topic (by number of views) has been the series on Defensive Game Planning. That is in part due to a number of online football outlets posting links to the series – most notably:
- Coach and Coordinator – Coach Keith Grabowski ‘s blog
- PrepsKC.com – home of Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association
- Kansasprepsfootball.com – Kansas Prep Football site
- American Football Monthly – The Magazine for Football Coaches
- Coachhuey.com – The X’s and O’s of Football
Thanks to all of these coaches and sites for sharing this information with their readers. These are all great sites, ones that I would recommend bookmarking.
The stats ….
So far there have been nearly 5,000 views on the defensive game planning posts, with the most popular two being Defensive Game Planning – The Call Sheet, and Defensive Game Planning – The Play Grid. There has been almost 2,000 downloads of the various game planning tools that I shared in these posts, with the most downloaded being the Play Grid with over 200 downloads, followed closely by the blank Call Sheet with about 180 downloads.
Thanks to all who have read and shared. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or comment. I will respond. If you have enjoyed these posts, please share with a colleague.
I hit a minor snag with my iBook on Defensive Game planning…. A couple of the images were too small to read so the iTunes store rejected it until I correct those issues. Hopefully I will have that (free) for all that would like to download it by the end of this month. Until that time you can get find all of the posts at these links:
