I'd argue Oregon overachieved.  Lack of history and lack of in-state talent are huge hurdles to overcome.  They've only been remotely close because of a ton of money from Nike and Chip Kelly.  And now they are coming back down to reality.

If you can't teach speed, why do we have track coaches?  And why do people train specifically for the 40-yard dash for the combine?  It's because you actually can teach speed.

What you can't teach though, is long arms as mentioned in the post above you.

I don't know a lick of Arabic, but those two words do not very similar to me.

Seems Dontre's broken foot definitely has some lingering effects.

I'd be curious what the numbers are on Elflein in the two photos.  As someone pointed out last time, they don't look that different other than a little tanner and sucking in his gut a bit in the second photo.  Chin/neck look about the same; area near armpit/pec looks about the same; love handles look about the same; etc.  But I also wouldn't expect a ton of change in 6 weeks as that is not a large amount of time especially dealing with a highly trained athlete.

In defense of AD's dad, the Vikings offensive line was one of the worst in the league.

As for tempo, the only reason I could ever think of while watching the games is they trusted JT enough to make pre-snap adjustments.  Which I think he very often made proper reads, but then the execution was lacking.  So in that, just go tempo as it's been deadly for us.

I guess if PI is not called as much, DBs can play a lot more aggressively, hold, etc.  If it is called tighter, they have to back off the receivers allowing QBs to complete more passes.

They most certainly are skewed so that they can make that money you're talking about.  If they look at the metrics they normally use to set lines and determine Clemson and Ohio State would be even, they will then move it to Ohio State -3 knowing the Ohio State fanbase will still bet it to a bet distribution that they want.  If they left it at even, too much money would come in on Ohio State.
