The explosion of the RPO and spread offenses came from the South where they have a lot of speed and great athletes. In addition when you're playing under sunny skies and ideal weather conditions, no doubt the focus on the passing game is huge. Just look at the numbers Johnny Manziel put up at Texas A&M but he was a flop in Cleveland at the "Mistake by the Lake". However, in the Ivy League it's rare to find a QB who is both good at passing and running the football. A perfect example was Dartmouth's Jared Gerbino who was an outstanding running QB but not much of a passer. I think it's easier to get the work done in the weight room and build more of a power based running game in the Ivy League complimented by a good passing attack. I just wish Cornell football would get back to playing "Cornell Football" which was always based on a strong running game. This "Dance & Prance" crap over the past 15 years has been a disaster.

[> Subject: The Resurgence of The Running Game, Just For Sprint

Sprint, there was just some discussion on The Colin Cowherd Show which you would probably have enjoyed. The topic was how modern football defenses are constructed, to rush the quarterback and cover fast receivers all over the field. That means speed over size. Linebackers have to be fast enough to keep up with running backs on wheel routes and slot receivers on quick patterns. Safeties must be quick enough to pick up wide receivers who come into their coverage responsibility, keeping up with them all over the field.

Because of all this emphasis by defensive teams on speed, the new opportunity for offenses is running.

This is part of the natural ebb and flow between offenses and defenses. The change in the rules swung the former toward more passing and the spread game. Defenses had to react and have done so. That creates new inefficiencies and opportunities.
