Brian posted something on Sporting News about Auburn's offense, comparing it to the single-wing formation. This is Chris's rebuttal to that assertion. It's kind of interesting to see that two very knowledgeable people on the topic have very divergent opinions of it.

But until Chris Brown rocks hair like this, I gotta side with Brian.
This is why Photoshop was invented.
nailed this one. Wish I could take the credit.
There is a big difference between running multiple backs with misdirection and ball fakes specifically with the intent of confusing defenses, and running an option play based on the reactions of a defensive end. I wish people would stop trying to generalize these offenses into prepackaged titles so they can sound smart. Every offense does not fit neatly into Spread, Pro-style, Wishbone, Single Wing, Wildcat, etc. RR, like most coaches, has an offensive philosophy, not a system. It is not like he went to the library and picked up 'Spread 101.' If I had to describe the offense Michigan has been running (or at least attempting to) I would say we try to use option reads and quick passing with a balanced run/pass ratio in order to keep the defense spread evenly across the field so we can utilize speedy backs in the extra space.
I feel blasphemous for having to ask, but is that the man, the myth, the legend Brian Cook?
Sorry I don't know why it double posted my wifi is acting a fool right now.
Brian is poised to take over the world.
very close to being Martavious-esque.
