I tried to pull that one on my twin’s respective schools financial aid departments.  They are both technically sophomores after their first semester due to the college credits from HS.

it didn’t go well for me at either school.

I looked into what it takes to be an actuary a while back because it looked pretty interesting and seemed as if it would be less stressful than what I do now.  The more I thought about how long it would probably take me to do it while still working the more I began to worry about being replaced by an AI just about the time I would be starting to be good at it (a long time from now).

It’s got to really suck be a fan Up There.  I was beginning to get worried that their successes this year were a Harbinger (pun intended) of doom for of the cycle of spread offenses, but it seems Jimmy jumped the gun.

I think the power run heavy beefy 1-2 TE Oline phone booth offenses will catch on again but it may not be for  another 20-30 years.  The Single Wing forced a spread out defense with faster (lighter) defenders from the early 1900’s to the 50’s.

From the 50’s to the 60’s the T formation / I formation started to take advantage of defense built to spread out and stop the Single Wing by over powering them.

Single Wing concepts started making a comeback in the early 2000’s taking advantage of defenses geared to stop the Power I.

If you want to be an early adopter of the next cycle it almost seems to me that you need the personnel for 2 teams - 1 to do what you do and another to practice against that does what everyone else does.

To be so close to being the team that could usher in the next cycle and then have it all come crashing down in flames must be devestating, but it seems deservedly so.

Cardale actually played in 7 or 8 games that year.  Most of them he was just handing off but he played at least an entire half and was throwing it deep against Illinois.

Prior to Wisconsin that year:  10-17 118 / 26-206 rushing.

I do have a question about one of the goals in the videos.   What is the rule about having skates in the painted area in front of the goal?  I previously thought that was a no-no.  Does this change if you are being checked?

Im quite happy to see a domination by a team I like today when things didn’t go well for some of the other teams I like.

2nd question:  shouldn’t have MSU’s goalie risked it to pick up his stick?  I know very little about hockey - but defending without it seemed futile.

Lastly, thanks for the Great recap!
