Observer....agreed we actually have several friends who attended Clemson and we enjoy watching the Tigers. Unfortunately at Cornell we don't have their RB's with 4.3 speed, where they run that Run-Pass Option (RPO). Every time Cornell runs the ball out of that formation we get stuffed.

I have absolutely loved watching Clemson the past two years. And you're right, having running backs with 4.3 speed (you know, like Harvard does) helps, as does having a guy like the Tigers' quarterback -- what's his name again?

These things move in cycles. Cornell will improve someday but, from your perspective, I fear that it will require moving past Archer. Until that happens, hang in there.

I hate the spread all the time as its like watching Canadien Football. No pass action and it's like the same play over and over. Where in the NFL they play lots of formations and it's a much better game.

Woody Hayes was correct when he said that.

Acob,

I "googled around" on your question and the "internetwisdom" is that Darrell Royal said it, but he attributed it to Woody Hayes and always gave Hayes credit for the phrase. Also, it appears that some claim the famous Tennessee coach, Neyland, said it before Hayes.

Sorry to delay a response to you--I got covfefed on the Fourth.
