The Mailbag is now for subscribers only. That’s going to do a few things: it will keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on. And it will allow us to offer a free one-month Mini subscription for the best email or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.

You can email me anytime at with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.

Q: You (and Keith) have talked about how you can tell how good a team is by their reset system. What goes into an assessment of a team’s reset system? What positive elements do you look for? Negative ones? What are the biggest mistakes teams make regarding reset systems? Do certain things matter more in different offenses or divisions (club/college/women’s/mixed/men’s)? Which teams are the gold standard?
