    We all know that to be West division champion that we probably need to go undefeated in division games. Since itís inception, the winner of the West has been undefeated with exception of Bucky who lost a game to a 4-7 NW. Otherwise the West division champions have been 29 -1 in the division. Who cares about crossover games? I donít.

    Tell that to:
    Memphis, Clemson, and Oklahoma who are all top 15 in total rush yards and top 3 in yards per rush last year.


    All out of the spread


    Other teams in the top 30 of both rush yards and yards per attempt who run the spread:
    Illinois
    UCF
    App State
    Maryland
    Mississippi state
    Nebraska
    Texas A&M
    Toledo
    Penn State
    FAU
    Cincinnati
    Houston
    Florida


    I am not sure about Louisiana and UNLV because I don’t think I’ve watched them play in the past year.



    For your own personal information...in 2018-19 college football. 24 teams were top 30 in both rush yards and in yards per carry. At least 16 of those 24 are spread teams.

    It really depends on how you are trying to run. Spread offenses do it by opening up the middle of the field to give their running backs free lanes to run downhill. Under center is usually more of a power scheme, where you force holes open for a running back coming downfield. Both can be very effective, but you need to match the scheme to your personnel.

    I think it's likely we run a combination of under center and spread formations as we have players who can take advantage of both.

    Some of the best power run games in the country are spread teams.
    Auburn, Florida, Mississippi state
    Even Alabama has gone towards spread

    I wasn't saying that spread has to be a spacing run formation, just that it is commonly done that way. You can technically run any run blocking scheme in any formation if you want, you just need to have the players to execute it.

    Hey thanks for agreeing with my argument that non spread systems are not necessary better for running the football than spread systems

    Some guy wants us to be Illinois. Got it

    Spread is such a slam dunk scheme, thatís why all the NFL teams run a spread. Got it

    I think the spread is pretty much the direction the NFL is headed which is why the last two #1 overall picks came from a spread offense. Really canít say I care what we run as long as we win games.

    Lol

    I think what we are doing is okay.
    I’d rather be Oklahoma, Clemson, Texas A&M than Illinois.


    I don’t really care what system we run as long as it allows us to run and pass the ball effectively. I would be totally against a triple option system because it wouldn’t allow us to do both things in most cases. But between a pro style and spread, I am fine with either because you can use either to run or pass the ball successfully.
