Top Seven Maxims of Football

Postby Alvin York » Mon May 06, 2013 11:59 pm

1. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win.

2. Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way - SCORE.

3. If at first the game - or the breaks - go against you, don't let up... put on more steam.

4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game.

5. Ball, oskie, cover, block, cut and slice, pursue and gang tackle... for this is the WINNING EDGE.

6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made.

7. Carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for 60 minutes.

General Robert Reese Neyland

There's actually 38. You are 31 short there Yorkie.

Neyland's 38 Team Maxims

By Cameron Harris on March 28, 2012 1:01 PM



Almost every true Tennessee fan can recite General Neyland's Seven Game Maxims by heart, but did you know that his original list had 38 maxims in total?

Inspired by, and in some cases borrowed from the 1921 book published by his coach at West Point, Charles D. Daly, entitled American Football, How To Play It, Neyland collected a list of 38 maxims that he felt best described how to achieve success in the game of football.

Below is the complete list of Neyland's 38 Team Maxims, as compiled in Andy Kozar's book, Football as a War Game -- The Annotated Journals of General R.R. Neyland.

1. Thou shalt charge a block.
2. Thou shalt charge a fight.
3. A good interferer never looks back.
4. One good interferer is worth 3 ball carrying stars.
5. A team that won't be beat can't be beat.
6. The team that makes the fewest mistakes win.
7. Never stop till the referee's whistle blows.
8. Press the kicking game.
9. Make and play for the breaks. One comes your way, score.
10. If the game or a break goes against you, don't lie down, put on more steam.
11. Don't save yourself. Go the limit. There are good men on the sidelines when you are exhausted.
12. Football is a battle. Go out to fight and keep it up all afternoon.
13. A man's value to his team varies inversely as his distance from the ball.
14. If the line goes forward, the team wins; if it comes backward, the team loses.
15. Never lose the ball on downs.
16. You can't fight like a man with less than 100% loyalty and college spirit.
17. You can't do yourself justice without getting and staying in condition.
18. At least 3 men make every tackle, "Gang Tacklers."
19. Let none escape!
20. 1st rush equals 6 yds.
21. Eleven men in every play.
22. Use your head. 75 percent of football is above the neck.
23. One increasing purpose.
24. A quitter never wins & a winner never quits.
25. Keep everlastingly on the job.
26. Be the first to line up.
27. Never stop fighting.
28. No good blocker and tackler was ever kept off a football team.
29. Use your eyes, your hands, your legs, and your head.
30. Be aggressive, you can't win the game on your side of the scrimmage line.
31. If the game is going against you, keep your head up, set your jaw, and dig in. This is what tests the stuff you are made of.
32. Hate & abhor the scrimmage line; it is a restraining mark.
33. "Turf" their defense! Get them down!
34. A winning team quickens its play as it nears the goal line!
35. Get the jump on your teammates on the charge.
36. Follow the ball!
37. Play your own position well first.
38. Line -- charge with the ball!



And by the way, that background landscape on that signature picture entitled "Florida's Version of Prohibition" that you keep posting looks more like the hills of Tennessee than anything I have ever seen in Florida.

8) Keep these on you at all times, refer to them all times .... have'em
tattooed on your forearm in Chinese characters so opponents can't
steal them.

9) Only this way will UT outsmart all other teams... forever.

Here are 19 rules to live by:

STANDING ORDERS, ROGERS' RANGERS
MAJOR ROBERT ROGERS, 1759
1. Don't forget nothing.
2. Have your musket clean as a whistle, hatchet scoured, sixty rounds powder and ball, and be ready to march at a minute's warning.
3. When you're on the march, act the way you would if you was sneaking up on a deer. See the enemy first.
4. Tell the truth about what you see and what you do. There is an army depending on us for correct information. You can lie all you please when you tell other folks about the Rangers, but don't never lie to a Ranger or officer.
5. Don't never take a chance you don't have to.
6. When we're on the march we march single file, far enough apart so one shot can't go through two men.
7. If we strike swamps, or soft ground, we spread out abreast, so it's hard to track us.
8. When we march, we keep moving till dark, so as to give the enemy the least possible chance at us.
9. When we camp, half the party stays awake while the other half sleeps.
10. If we take prisoners, we keep' em separate till we have had time to examine them, so they can't cook up a story between' em.
11. Don't ever march home the same way. Take a different route so you won't be ambushed.
12. No matter whether we travel in big parties or little ones, each party has to keep a scout 20 yards ahead, 20 yards on each flank, and 20 yards in the rear so the main body can't be surprised and wiped out.
13. Every night you'll be told where to meet if surrounded by a superior force.
14. Don't sit down to eat without posting sentries.
15. Don't sleep beyond dawn. Dawn's when the French and Indians attack.
16. Don't cross a river by a regular ford.
17. If somebody's trailing you, make a circle, come back onto your own tracks, and ambush the folks that aim to ambush you.
18. Don't stand up when the enemy's coming against you. Kneel down, lie down, hide behind a tree.
19. Let the enemy come till he's almost close enough to touch, then let him have it and jump out and finish him up with your hatchet.

You could call Roger's Rangers the prototype for the Navy SEALS.

Still love that old movie, "Northwest Passage" starring Spencer Tracy and Robert Young.

In the eyes of the Colonials Robert Rogers went from hero to zero when he threw in his lot with the British including assisting in the capture of American Revolutionary hero, Nathan Hale. Rogers could never achieve any military success during the war and ended his days as an alcoholic living in obscurity and debt.

Still preaching that same old sermon, Rev. Fallwell? Jesus, maybe you should join an old lady's sewing circle where there is no ball breaking and everyone is of one accord.

What really burns your ass Is I'm still on the GSMB pitching while your mentor and butt buddy, Sid, is home alone pouting with his little feelings hurt because he can't come out and play with the kids in his gator neighborhood.

Now go home and get your Marion Berry shine box.
