Gotta love the coaches the really understand the tradition of the game, and who pay homage to those innovators that came before. Much as I think Buddy Ryan was a complete douch, I'm starting to like his kids. Rob Ryan lines the Dallas D up on the first play yesterday in Landrys "Flex" formation, as a tribute to one of the truly forward thinking coaches of all time. Much like Leach lining the OU offense up in the wishbone his first play to honor that great tradition, it's a class act and a true celebration of what is best about the game. For those of us old enough to remember what Coach Landry did for the game, the nostalgia of that moment was rich. For those of us that had the privilege of watching a Leach offense fire on all cylinders, I wonder how long it will be before we can pay tribute to that innovative thing of beauty, and the Coach that brought it to Lubbock.
