I find this post very interesting.  Something I read sparked a memory of a recent Radio conversation about the Draft. More specifically the  Plus-Minus of various college players by position.

Many of the Minuses outside the physical aspects were related to the plethora of "The Spread" offenses.  Ironically the OL and QB's bore the brunt of the disdain.     

Poor Run Blocking skills
No Pocket Passing Ability

Funny how the more things change the more they desire to retain a Balance.  I think the one glaring detriment to the Spread for most teams is the inability to Run the ball to sustain drives, keep your defense fresh, and keep the ball out of your opponents hands.  Im just not as excited about watching 2 teams put up 80 points when 90% of the time the game is all about who has the ball last.    How many times have you seen a Spread team lose because they cant control the ball with 4:00 left on the clock?

i agree.

i guess the casual fan loves a baylor/osu game where the final score is 63-55.  but i don't enjoy it at all.  i spend the whole game trying to figure out how it could be stopped.

i watched mich/wisc last year, and although i'm not a fan of either team i thought it was a fantastic game.  not too many points scored, but lots of good football played.

maybe i'm just old, i don't know.  but spread games with basketball scores don't do much for me.

I am at the point where the logo no longer really matters. It really is who the coach is, and the style being played.
