    Saw this in today's paper....though it was interesting. A lot of truth to it.

    Could Lou Holtz be right? Is the "spread offense" the great equalizer? Just get an athletic spear chucker and 3 fast wideouts with good hands, 1 decent running back, and you can play with anyone?

    For now. Some defensive guru is going to figure out a way to shut it down, and it will disappear just like the wing T.

    The 2 top teams in the nation as far as offense goes are #1 Texas Tech and #2 Tulsa.

    The problem with Tech is that Mike Leach doesn't give a chit about the defensive side of the ball.

    Tulsa is just in a weaker conference and can't get the recruits that a major university can.

    Most of the time, a team with fast athletic players can defend the spread. There are a lot of various forms of it out there. Of course, sometimes, these teams will sneak up on you and bite you on the ass.

    Tulsa runs a version of the spread.
    Oregon runs a version of the spread.

    It also helps to be familiar with the offense. OU used to run the spread back in 99, and 2000.

    You guys have the talent on defense and the coaching staff to beat it 99% of the time. I'm not trying to take a shot at you guys either if that is what some one wants to come back at me with.
