Yesterday's thread meltdown all over the site lead to some posts that I could not really believe people were still clinging to. It was like we were back in a time warp and people were clinging to the earth is flat. I thought most of the people on here were aware the info they got from reading the Freep was garbage and they needed to do further research to understand what is going on with their favorite team. Apparently MGOBLOG has gotten so popular that this is not the case and we have some very misguided members.
There are a lot of great points to debate in football, that is why this site is so fun, but we can't bog down a lot of good threads with garbage from people that are simply misinformed. I'm going to list some of my favorite myth's and I invite you to add your own so we can rid ourselves of this clutter. I think the coaches names cloud peoples judgement so please be generic and don't mention any current or former Michigan coaches.
1. The spread/ spread/option is a flawed concept that doesn't work in the Big Ten- Seriously?
2. Big Ten Style of Football- If you believe certain schemes work because of geography than you need some help. Teams have won the Big Ten playing all sorts of styles. It's talent and execution that win not schemes and teams can win with almost any scheme if run correctly with good talent.
I could go on, but I'll leave the floor clear for your favorite.
