Here's a football one... ZBS- zone blocking scheme. Packers, Falcons, Broncos all use it. Plus some college teams. Leads to decent running games with unspectacular backs and lots of pressure on the QB to get the ball out quick. (too bad for Jake Plummer).
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!
