Your best method of going over a playbook would be 5 on 0

Which is undoubtedly being done. But everyone looks good against zero defense. It is hard to pick up where youll have to improvise, especially in a system like MY where reading a screen or reading a secondary defender is key in making a play/action work.

Lets be honest, if they had more than 7 healthy players, none of the games would have been cancelled. So you have to think about what you can do with only small amounts, and that takes away most things that make your practices comptetitive and informative at the same time. 5 on 0 can be informative without being competitive. 2 on 2 can be competitive without being informative. So your practice are at best 50% as efficient as they were before, and most likely much less than that.

It is going to take a while for VT to get back up to full steam regardless of when the next game is
