    Cool playbook tool

    At NCAAUtopia awhile back I found a good tool for people who are hunting for just the right playbook.

    Hosted it on my own webspace. Since it's just a few guys I'm sharing this with I will just provide you with the direct link but I want to be clear, those guys put this together and did all the work.

    http://www.hellispace.com/Purdue/PlaybookSearch.exe

    Right click and "save as"

    Let me know if it doesn't work and I will go over there and get another link....

    But basically, this is an awesome tool. (that's what she said)

    It is searchable by formation sets, individual formations, and has pics of all the formations in case you're not sure exactly what something is called. You can, for instance, say I wanna have I-form tight and still have 5-wides, so go to the formations side and click I-form tight and all the 5-WR shotgun sets and it'll show you which playbook has the most of the checked formations.

    yeah i use this too...i really like how you can put in your personnel and it spits out the playbooks that fit you well. some years you dont have a very good TE, but have 4 solid WRs so want playbooks with more 4 wide plays. some years, 2 solid TEs but no FB, etc.

    well crap. that seems like a nice tool to use (that's what she said) for each season depending on where I have the most talent.

    Yeah I used the playbook tool that I referenced and that jfosh mentioned last year and believe me there's no comparison. Unless you literally don't have a job and have the time to pore over the playbooks visually. I imagine it sucks to use a mac on occasion because of things like this.
