Why is there this epidemic of coaches trying to run the West Coast Offense with teams that are better suited to an running, option and play-action-passing-with-one-or-two-receivers-going-deep offense?

Because "kids" want to play in the NFL, and passing is what sells tickets, big highlights,


It's simple. It's the corruption of oldschool football.


Now, what is really interesting.........
for the first time in several years, Nebraska had a 1000+ running back in Cory Ross last year.

Also, the WCO produced a huge year for Ahman Green (lo and behold, a Nebraska graduate) a year or so ago, for the Green Bay Packers. So the WCO doesn't neccesarily mean passing all the time.


But I wish we could go back to the days of the Power I and wishbones and Power T and such...... I've never really seen those days...

But hell......... that's not football, not anymore.
Don't get me wrong, modern football is still respectable.....

But I think that all those nice, southern bowl games - all the players and coaches should get a nice flower because they get "desireable weather"

They should all get a pansy.




The BCS should rotate the stadiums, at least.




--------------

Lastly, speedracer specifically with your post...

All football is sadly becoming homogenized. That's why I liked college so much, esp nebraska, since they were old school. And look what happens the first year I follow them - they go 9-3, fire Frank Solich, win their bowl, and then get Bill Calahan the next year. I guess I'll always have stories to tell about what it was like when I first began to follow Nebraska more seriously.'

But anyway......

People are unoriginal and uncourageous, for the most part. No one is much unique anymore, and that's unfortunate. But no matter what, I guess you have to stay on the cutting edge. It seems like NU always is behind Oklahoma in that regard, and it's slightly annoying. Both because NU is behind, be also because they seem to copycat them sometimes.



Anyhow.........


ah, I can't write anythign more.
I'm too irratated by there not being major bowls in the northeast, and people not wanting to play football in the snow.

and it's 2am, and Im tired, and gotta wake up in a lbit.........




at least football season is here, and my beloved snow will soon be on the way

Our offensive line couldn't block me and any 3 of you.
Young QB's, drops, devastating turnovers. Flat team, flat crowd.
For a while I thought it was 1996.

Oh well, we'll still beat Texas.

hopefully.

Sure, RBs in WCOs can rack up yards. But I think the big thing is that in the WCO, the pass sets up the run. Make a few good passing plays, the defense starts loosening up, and then you pound the ball inside.

Now if you have a good running game but either don't have 4 good receivers or don't have a QB who can consistently hit the third or fourth option, it makes more sense to use the run to set up the pass. Run the ball, then run some good play-action passes where the QB only has to look at one or two options because the linebackers are out of position.

And the option attack is just plain cool. NFL teams don't use it because otherwise their QBs are going to get annihilated, but it works great in college and more teams should try it because nobody ever seems to be able to defend it.

They should get destroyed by my Hawks.

Hopefully the Hawks can put it all together this year. Looks like they have the depth that other powerhouses usually have.

The cyclones on the other hand just break my heart. I used to have high hopes with them, but they always find some way to fudge up. And I still can't believe they haven't found a kid that can kick the ball through the uprights. just horrible.

Hey, you don't have to convince me about the option.........

That used to be the only play I ran whenever I played NCAA Football videogames.... As Nebraska, I actually ran only option plays the entire game. WHich is quite feasible, on paper, since there are so many ......... options......


power option
trip
trip reverse
counter
fb option
double rb option
speed option
option pass
triple option pass
triple option counter pass

and probably a handful of other derivations
*sigh*

I wish people would go back to oldschool football on some level. Or at least incorperate the option anymore. I wonder why the NFL doesn't use it anymore, really...


"no fun league"

lol

Michigan could lose to Iowa but I dont think anyone is going to "destroy" them including Iowa. The offense is just to good. They will score alot of points. Michigan's problem is they cant stop anyone either. Most Michigan games are going to be shootouts this year.

The only game on Michigan's schedule that has the potential to get ugly for them I'm sorry to say is the Buckeyes. They have potentially the only defense Michigan is going to face that could consistantly stop their offense. The only good thing is that its at Michigan this year. If it was at OSU I dont think Michigan would have a prayer.

I hope Michigan's defense can improve, wouldnt take much. If they dont they will lose probably around 3 games this year. But I dont think they will get "destroyed" in any of them. Michigan's offense is as good as anyone in the country this year (yes Mr. BAW that includes USC ). There is not a weak position on the entire offense and they are 2 and 3 deep with quality at most positions. If Michigan had just an average defense this year they would be legitimate national title contenders. Unfortunately they dont, and I think they are over ranked at #3. They should be about 12th the way their defense plays at this stage.

Saturday's tilt vs. The Notre Dame Fighting Weises should be an entetaining affair, for those who care to wager, the over looks solid.

Hook em Horns!

Would like to see the Buckeyes lose, but I dont care for Texas either and if they Buckeyes do win it makes the Big 10 look better. So either way I wont mind. Just hoping its a good game. Should be.
