Sweet.

We’ve got a strong freshman recruiting class so far, which rocks. I hope you all stay and compete all year. Second, practice times are the same as before, but practice will be held at the football practice fields instead of the towers. Some weekends we will probably be playing at the upper fields, which is up the hill from the football practice fields.

A few posts ago (last year), I linked zips tips. Well, I’m going to link to them again,  especially for you freshman. You can look at one everyday before practice or just glance at them every once in a while.  Start at the bottom of the page,  and work your way up. They definitely help.

I was happy to see AJ rocking his Full Tilt hat today around campus, mostly bc he has so much hair it barely fit on top of his head.

See y’all at practice.

Fall season starts now.

August 25, 2009

Another summer has gone by and I haven’t been very good about updating the blog, but I really didn’t have much to say and the college blogosphere was fairly quiet as well.

First off, practice the first two weeks will be as follows:

  • Wednesday and Thursday at 4:15 in front of the towers (the huge dorms)
  • Sunday practice is at 2 p.m. also in front of the towers.
  • Bring a white shirt, a dark shirt,  water and cleats if you got ’em

That being said, the most important thing to bring to practice is a sense of focus.  Everyone needs to be dialed in and on the same page. Last spring started strong and then faded out to some really horrible results.  Some of that was the result of unfortunate circumstances, but we brought some of it on ourselves too. Don’t explicitly work on strengths, work on and identify weaknesses.

If you are new and haven’t played in high school, don’t shy away from practicing your flick because others are watching. We understand and don’t expect you to throw it right away.

Other than that, just come out and play hard.

Field spacing: new huddle issue

April 2, 2009

Hey guys,

I don’t know how many of you are regular readers of the huddle, but you should be. There is an article about field spacing on offense and not getting trapped on the sidelines right now that you all should read.

There is a permanent link to the huddle here on our site so it should be easy to get to.

Also, there is now a permanent link to a GREAT ultimate training website at the top of our page in the sidebar. Go there. Check it often.  Get better.

We have a tourney this weekend. I would write up a preview, but basically it can be summed up in this.  We are playing good teams and we have to bring it, especially with our small practices and number of legs we are brining to this tourney.  If you need a pick me up for motivation, follow a few of Zips tips, an old site from when Josh Zipperstein (he was a baller) won a college title with Brown.  I often read a few before tourneys and have for a few years.

Even if we don’t win any games at all this weekend, if everyone goes balls out and we have good offensive flow, we will have improved, which is what matters.

In short,  to steal a line from another ultimate blog out there,

“Haters gonna hate, ballers gonna ball”

Tally Classic Write-up

March 12, 2009

So Full Tilt went down to Tally Classic in Tallahassee, Florida. Our second car rolled in at three in the morning and most of our guys were running on two hours to one hour of sleep at best. Morning on Saturday found us driving around lost as hell on the campus of Florida State (Which is beautiful). After getting to the fields about half an hour late we found we had been moved to the B-pool due to our tardiness.

With our lack of sleep, this was actually a good thing and the first two games were  much closer than they should have been although we were never in danger. All the teams we played in the pool were spirited (thanks Notre Dame -B ). Also due to our tardiness we had 5 games in a row and no byes with most guys running on no food all day.

We won our first 4 games, but lost our 5th to Valdosta State on universe. Things got chippy a bit in the game and we were not very happy with some of the calls made. However, both teams were tired and I am sure that played a part in it. A lot of people I talked to said Valdosta is a pretty cool team.

Somehow we made it into the championship bracket and played Miami of Ohio. We moved on 13-10 after running a normal vert stack set, but using our handler breaks and never stopping flow and never having cutters  holding the disc for more than stall three once we got a break throw. The next game we were really gassed with only 8 healthy players and most of the healthy ones cramping. We played an LSU team that was faster and taller and we had no answer for their 5 and 6 man Ho-stack sets. They beat us pretty easily, but did so with a lot of sportsmanship. Our last game of the day would have us playing Auburn. Auburn runs a lot of vert stack themselves and it seemed tougher to get handler break throws and good flow. Tilt used a good clam defense to go up 10-8 when soft cap was called. Unfortunately fatigue and offensive turns led to Auburn running off four straight on us to claim the game.

Overall, Tally Classic was awesome. Sunny skies and temps around 82 were a perfect way to kick off our week. The tourney was well run and everyone seemed to be pretty friendly. Also, the pizza was pretty good too. Our team actually got like 4 or 5. The only gripe I have would be having to fill out an injury report to get ice. Many people that needed ice were actually denied because someone determined their injury was not serious. I understand ice is expensive, but if teams are paying $250 for a bid it shouldnt cut into the bottom line that much.

Hopefully this tourney expands. I know we will probably be back if it falls on our spring break again.

So you wanna be a handler eh?

We know Timmy P isn’t gonna be at sectionals at least on Saturday, and most likely Frenchy will be spectating with a clipboard and spectacles yelling obscenities about clearing out, cutting, and what not.

So, we’re gonna have to really step up at the handler positions. Work on your throws you don’t have, but when it comes to game time play inside yourself (what Frenchy was talking about at practice yesterday).

So read this POST on the net. I think it talks about the same thing with more clarity than Frenchy or I can probably provide.

On a side note, only half of the posts are usually mine. Frenchy just uses my account to post.

today at practice we had 15 people out there with help from some visitors… there was not one freshman out there! If new guys want a spot on the sectionals roster then they have to come to practice!
