please turn on ESPN and note the "Line Splits' of the Texas Tech OL's and the natural running lanes that occur because of these splits.....also it makes the DL have to run further to get to the QB...your 'scrum' theory of OL play is "dead to me'

This was the genius of RR. He knew how to scheme up teams that were at a talent disadvantage. I understand why he took Arizona over us but it was a mistake. He's at his best when he has to use his imagination and scheme around weaknesses. I wish we would have hired him as a consultant or analyst this offseason and let him show them how to scheme around our OL issues.

We'll be fine, wide splits or not. 1998 was a special time, RR was creative in developing an offense that is still being run in some form by a majority of college & high school teams.
Does Rice have road pavers for o-lineman? Did they go 1-11 last year? They ran and passed the ball at will for the first three quarters against Houston (400 yds).
Mike Bloomgren & staff!
The RPO is in the same life phase as the wishbone & veer were in the late 70's & early 80's. There aren't any more rabbits that you can pull out of the RPO hat.
In the late 70's and early 80's University of Pittsburgh, Miami & Tulane were innovative in applying the Pro offense to the college game. For a very, very brief time, we had a little sunshine on our program. Until we hired a proven loser because it was a "safe hire" because he wouldn't leave which was true - he was fired!

Win wave-I donโ€™t think RR would want to have anything to do with us after we so intelligently corn holed him

He didn't for a long time but those fools are gone thank goodness. He still has a good relationship with several players from his time here that are close to the program.

Too bad for RR that his offensive scheme couldn't be protected by intellectual property rights. There are whole generations of highly paid coaches/ programs who succeeded far beyond their talent level. RR's great grandchildren would be all set for life.
