Spencer Hall Goes Down The Rabbit Hole Of The Oregon Offense And Makes A Shocking Discovery.

It's not that danged unique. Spencer makes the excellent points that Oregon's attack is a) not "pistol" based, b) not a finesse game and c) (gasp!) not that complicated. Instead, Oregon's offense produces points by the bushel the same way Barry Switzer's and Fielding Yost's* did: by putting excellent football players in position to execute a sound system. All the misdirection and threats of misdirection hide Oregon's frighteningly consistent habit of firing out, putting helmets on helmets and thereby sending LaMichael James turbopropping into the secondary. Check it out over at SBNation.com.

*Ok, Yost's teams might have been helped along by playing a schedule that included Albion, Beloit, Buffalo (whom they defeated by a slim 128-0 margin) and Case Scientific. I say, did they ever put a coat of polish on the Britons that mere soap and water dare not  wash away!
