It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. AUSTIN, Texas -- Sterlin Gilbert comes off as a genuinely folksy West Texas man of few words, but he can get downright philosophical when discussing his objective as the new offensive coordinator at Texas.Its the act of knowing without knowing, Gilbert said.The high-speed offense hes building -- like so many others in the Big 12 -- doesnt achieve success simply by being taught and learned. Gilbert is trying to train what he calls basic mind-muscle memory. If a player can unconsciously perform his task, hell do so optimally. The more you do it, the more automatic it becomes.Its all built on high reps, Gilbert said. When you get it right, were gonna do it again. When you get it right again, were gonna do it again.And when it works, it looks incredibly easy. But theres nothing easy about condensing it into only 15 practices in the spring and 29 in the preseason.The Longhorns are trying to achieve the same feat that made TCU co-Big 12 champions in 2014 and sent Oklahoma to the College Football Playoff in 2015. The masterminds behind the offensive renovations at these three programs come from different backgrounds and systems, but with some things in common -- a new quarterback, a new scheme and defenses that can hold their own.And the mission is universal. Score more points. Win more games.But first it requires a successful install.TCU co-offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie can look back on their first offseason in Fort Worth -- and their 23-3 record since -- and chuckle about the less-than-inspiring early results.We got shut out in the spring game, so that didnt go too well, Cumbie said.No points, four turnovers. The staff brought in a new quarterback, Texas A&M grad transfer Matt Joeckel, to challenge Trevone Boykin. The offense was still a work in progress in early August. The Horned Frogs didnt truly know what they had -- with their offense or with Boykin -- until their scrimmages in fall camp.When it all came together, TCU exploded: 46.5 points per game, 12 wins, a New Years Six bowl victory, a Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year at QB and an utterly stunning turnaround.Why did it all work so well? Meacham acknowledges there was some element of surprise. People didnt know exactly what TCU was planning offensively. Nor did most people see the potential of Boykin and his buddies.We just so happened to have some really good players. That helped. And it just so happened what we were doing offensively kind of fit their skill set, Meacham said. Then we tweaked a little bit here and there and fit what they were with what we were going to do.Keep in mind, Meacham and Cumbie were working with the same players who scored 8.8 first-half points per game in 2013. TCUs new offensive vision successfully unleashed those players. Six of them are in NFL training camps today. They pulled it all off in Year 1 because, ultimately, the plan wasnt complex.Its a real super ultra-simple system, Meacham said. After a year or two of being in the system, youll remember it the rest of your life.A little like that intuition idea Gilbert has. When you stay simple, Meacham says, youre letting your kids play full speed.If youre out there trying to figure out what to do, youre not very good, Meacham said. Youre not very fast and youre not very confident. If youre doing it full speed, you win more than you lose, Ill tell you that.Boykin, Josh Doctson and several more key veterans are gone, but TCUs offense has something vital now: two years of reps. For coaches, the system becomes more efficient. They know what does and doesnt work. For players, the system becomes more effortless.Its all about muscle memory and its all about repetition, and they hadnt gotten a lot of that, Cumbie said. Hopefully, you get to a point where it can run itself and guys know where to go and hhow to react. Steve McNair Jersey.
