"The Essential Smart Football" features analysis of football's top strategists and their schemes, including: Urban Meyer's spread offense Tom Brady's no-huddle attack Bill Belichick's hybrid defense Gus Malzahn's up-tempo offense Charlie Strong's defensive evolution Mike Leach's pass-happy "Air Raid" The most popular scheme for running the ball in the NFL Nick Saban's school of defense.
