Upvote for your realistic opinions, although I don't see it happening. If he chooses michigan sobeit .. We have Kareem Walker in the 2016 class who is for sure a RB who will see the field day one, the kid is an absolute monster.

If worst comes to the absolute worst .. Ttun isn't going to beat us with Weber if they somehow pull it off. That's my opinion and silver lining if that happens..

Historically football is a copy cat sport. If a program is very successful other programs want to and desire to know why and implement that.

I won't argue the point that you brought up Saban, and USC. You're correct. However, there are severe talent gaps in programs such as Texas Tech, & Purdue. Certainly there are many examples everywhere of where things work in specific places. By saying "If you run the spread you'll have success no matter what" is a most severe fallacy (not to say I bring a 100% solid argument here), but that is not entirely the the case I bring. Because as you stated, it simply is not true. "There are a million things that make a team successful". I agree. Ohio State is harvesting the best players year in and year out, and using a spread system that takes full advantage of their skill sets and amplifies that within a scheme that is designed to pin point the weakness of a defense in any alignment and at any position where the ball is spotted for the offense. 

Michigan's success in 100% based off of beating Ohio State. It is my belief, that the system we are running at high efficiency on the field, excellent recruiting, etc will lead to another dominant era over Michigan. It is not concrete fact, though I try to provide evidence to support it, I speak on my opinion as you do with offering that Craig Krenzel was a mediocre QB, I personally believe he was far from that, and a separate discussion altogether. 

I appreciate and respect your dissent, you bring a fine argument! I don't disagree. And as the sport of college football goes, I've pre ordered my crow to go, because the likelihood that an era of dominance broadly based on what I think it to be.. is just as likely to not happen at all! But as selfish Buckeye fan, I'll believe it to be another long 4 years for ttun, until the cows come home. And time will only tell

I'm glad to hear that you felt that way. A level minded supporting base of fans and alums is essential for a programs longevity in a way. I personally felt that he should've had another year to prove something than the porous defenses that were fielded in his years at UM.

It is important to keep things in perspective. The 2012-13 Buckeye round ball squad had a lethargicly slow start and ended the season very well with almost a top seed and made a great run at a national title. AND if history is any indicator of future results, when urban meyer won his first title at Florida the basketball team won a national title the same year. But that is wishful thinking rather than logical thinking. 

Go bucks

Let me tell ya, it is great stuff. But honestly, it gives the offense a mathematical and tactical advantage against a defense. Teams who evolve towards the spread scheme are elevating to a different level of competition, and even more so with addition of elite athletes in recruiting classes. In a sense, teams like Ohio State & Oregon are in a basic algebra class with Calculus level knowledge and competing against others who aren't graced with the same advantages. (Insert we did come to play school comments)
