Help me out

October 26, 2010

I honestly know very little about the following teams:

Machine, Madison Club, Madcow, Streetgang

If you have any info, insight, or commentary, please post here or email me at neeley87@gmail.com. Anything I can get will give me a better perspective as I attempt to cover them on Thursday, Friday, and beyond.

    I’ve played Streetgang twice. I don’t know their players by name, so I’m not much help with match-ups, but…

    They run a fair amount of spread offense. Two cutters on each sideline, one man goes across on sort of a diagonal, and once he’s clear you’ll see a similar diagonal starting from the other side. My team starting poaching this set-up in our 2nd game and they responded by mixing it up more with standard horizontal O.

    They don’t have a lot of height, but they are quite willing to huck it to their speedsters.

    They have a lefty handler who seems to be a big part of the offense when he’s on the field. Doesn’t seem to strike downfield much, but he did catch a huck against Condors at sectionals.

    Use several defensive looks. Against my team they mostly went with a box containment zone or person D. The box featured loose marks, with off-disc handler marks poaching the lanes some. Four defenders behind in a box formation, with the front two playing the passing lanes and two men deep. But not too deep. They play in enough to help up, and will encourage low-percentage huck attempts. One way to beat this is to send cutters out deeper than usual, to try to stretch the box out. We did a poor job of this at sectionals, better at regionals. Against Condors at sectionals I saw them effectively use the box and a 1-3-3 zone in relatively calm conditions. That game was not close. Unfortunately, I was playing while Condors beat SG in regionals pool play, and on my way out of Santa Barbara when they met again in the (fairly close) game to go, so I don’t know what adjustments Condors made against SG, and how SG responded.

    Hope this helps.

    Mike,

    Thanks a lot, this is really helpful… as a fan, I just want to know more about Streetgang before I watch them.

    I definitely get the picture: they like to huck. What I’m curious to see is whether or not they’re willing to attempt to work the disc point after point, gave after game. It sounds like they have the athleticism to hang with the field, but maybe their throws aren’t on par outside of their top handlers.

    One thing I heard about Streetgang is that they only had 15 guys at Emerald City. With that in mind, their close loss (13-15) to Ring is somewhat impressive. So is the 13-15 loss to Doublewide at Labor Day. Streetgang seems like they’re right on the cusp of being a top-10, and that they could make it happen under the right circumstances.

    Finally, one person commented to me that you don’t want to be tied at 11s with these guys, as they’re definitely capable of pulling down a few hucks in a row.
