+ 1 Right.....tOSU will always feature the best backs, but I personally think change is good, you have to evolve with the game...as we all know, the game is not static. I'd like to see an arsenal, one that keeps opponents from adequately preparing for the the Bucks Offense week in and week out. I love over-powering your opponent, but it's not reality in Top 20 Football to rely on it every week...there's just too many good athletes on defense.

scUM fans are going to pull their fur out when our version of the spread and assasin D does to them what RichRod was unable to do to us. We are changing it up but are still going to dominate them.

No im not making my hypothesis on RR and Michigan, where did you get that idea? You are failing to acknowledge the obvious correlation between top spread offenses and less than stellar defenses by saying Floridas was good while Meyer was there(seem to remember Michigan scoring at will) and then reference one season at Auburn when they did not really run a spread, they just had a running QB. Like everything there are probably an exception here or there but im speaking to the whole picture and spread offenses do not prepare defenses for smash mouth, physical football. The trade off is that when ran properly it can score enough points to outweigh the negatives. How about you research the top defensive units in college football and see how many run spread offenses. There will be some exceptions but its not the norm.
For the record I have no doubt Meyer will be successful at OSU. Its just not going to look like it did before as the defense is going to drop off relatively speaking to traditional OSU defenses. The offense once up and running should be formidable.

Change can, and in our case, should be good.
However, personally, I like nothing more than to see an Offense line up, tell the opponents that "we're going to run it down your throats", and then do just that.
Meanwhile, having (our) D kick them squarely in the ballz.
Other than that, change is good.

hmmm, "defense is going to drop off"
such a loaded comment......I'll just take it in stride.
The Defense will be just fine.. don't you know that the defense practices against the next opponents base formation in practice? And our Spread offense won't be a super heavy passing game like Texas Tech.. we will be running the ball a lot so weather won't be a huge factor. Why don't you just worry about your Cornhuskers and why they can't recruit anyone worth a damn.
