Well, some things I thought while watching the game last night: Playoff is badly needed now more than ever: Thank goodness it is coming. Texas A&M can make a case they deserved a shot. Possibly Oregon too. Florida could have before their bowl game. Georgia not so much. Pro style still Works Best: There is always a lot of hype around these spread and air raid offenses. ND has a spread as good as any and better than most. It was useless against the 'Bama D. Spread works great for teams that cannot get pro style RB, QB and OL but the pro style still works the best over the long haul. Alamaba has won 3 of the last 4 BCS title games with pro-style. The only teams to win with a spread were Auburn (With semi-pro Scam Newton at QB) and Florida twice. Manti Te'o was over hyped: Too many missed tackles. Not to say he should be given up on. But he is probably not going to be a top 5 pick at this point. Chip Kelly made a good decision to stay at Oregon: Spread is not going to work well in the NFl if used exclusively. It can be part of the offense but not the whole thing. The national title game gave us a good look at what the Chip Kelly offense would look like against many NFL defences. Charlie Casserly gave a good explanaition of why the spread would not work as an exclusive offence on on the NFL network this past weekend.
