Re: Why do so many of you guys hate the Spread?

Be a little more precise. What have I written that is incorrect?

Actually I know what I am talking about. The question is do you guys?

Re: Why do so many of you guys hate the Spread?

This occurred to me when I was reading the thread about why everyone was worried about next year.

Part of that was a post by Cover Two about next year's position groups, like quarterback.

Why do so many of you guys hate the Spread?

Or more precisely hate quarterbacks running as part of the scheme.

Okay, this inaugural playoff has Ohio State, Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State.

Two of those are clearly "spread" teams, a...

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

Let me put you in a situation.

Re: Wilds & Carson Back for Senior Year

It's been said before. This season even.

Pretty hard to run play action in the shotgun though. Only spread formation I've seen that seems to run it well is the pistol.

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

My answer is a couple of things.

1) If they are standing on the sidelines not doing much or saying anything as the play goes in, that is a pretty good sign they are not calling plays.

2) You...

I'm not sure what I think about Muschamp. I know we need to make changes on defense, it's not all talent as an issue there.

But here is my thinking about Muschamp.

Re: 2015 - Ulric Jones

I wonder why the guy couldn't play defensive end if he really runs a 4.8.

He probably doesn't, but if he does that is probably in the range that most strongside defensive ends run.

But they are...

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

Maybe so. But we do pretty good at whose going to win and whose going to lose as all these betting spreads show.

There any more to it than that?

I'm perfectly happy to criticize Spurrier for a lot of things. But this Muschamp stuff is a step further than I'd like to go. None of us can possibly know what the details are on this, because the...

Something also seems a little odd about Lawing coming back. Whether McIlwain wanted to keep him or not, he has a decent rep. You'd figure he'd wind up at an NC State or North Carolina or something...

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

And it baffles me how you can have pretty much the same coaching staff, some key losses on offense, a few additions, and a much tougher schedule, and not expect a worse record next year.

I think you are an optimist. I really think there is a good chance Spurrier hangs it up after the bowl. A lot of reasons for that, like going forward would require too many changes for what is...

Re: 2015 - Mark Fields

There is another possibility. That Spurrier resigns after the bowl game. I haven't really thought this through, but it seems to fit the facts we have seen so far.

And something is really fishy...

They joined the ACC in 78 or something. They left the SEC in the 60's.
