From the Past:
NDSU Early 1970s Defensive Playbook

Part I: The 5-2 Defensive Line

Coaches Learning Network

 

In the 1960s North Dakota State University began a tradition that developed one of the most dominate college football programs in America. Beginning with Darrell Mudra (1963-65, 24-6, 1965 national champions) and Ron Erhardt (1966-1972, 61-7-1, two national champions), the Bison have won eight national championships since 1965 and compiled a 352-94-4 record over the last 40 years (1965-2005).

 

Among those who played key roles in building the Bison tradition were legendary line coach Carl “Buck” Nystrom, and defensive coaches Ardell Wiegandt, Ev Kjelbertson and Jim Driscoll. Now a CLN Consultant, Driscoll, a co-captain of the 1963 Bison and an NDSU coach from 1969-1976 under three outstanding coaches, Ron Erhardt, Kjelbertson and Jim Wacker, is sharing a Bison defensive playbook from the early 1970s. The playbook features the 5-2, 4-3, 6-5 Goal Line fronts and coverages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Part one of this seven-part series features an overview of Okie 5-2 defensive line assignments, techniques, adjustments, stunts and blitzes. It also features several original hand-drawn diagrams.

 

Editor’s note: The original text hasn’t been updated so several terms have defined within parenthesis for clarification. For example, seam = gap, Squeeze = A gap, Eagle = B gap, and Power = C gap.
