"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

True, the point being we are very good in the BCS era but not elite.

I would give Oregon a shot against anyone. There is no replacement for speed. I think of the Oregon methods as those that are still being prefected and will come to play a more substantial role in the future of the college and professinal game. There will be an Oregon approach in the NFL within the next 5 years.
The whole "system" thing is funny. Everyone has a system. It is a philosophy and strategy accompanied by a tactical execution plan. Oregon and others do not have a "system" and UM, Alabama et al don't. They just have a different approach. Descriptions of a "system" as if it were some kind of voodoo really puzzle and concern me. Sometimes its the old ideas which should scare us more than the new ones.

Well, we are digging our way out of the defensive hole and are digging our way down into an offensive one. We have now slide about 30 places in each of the last two years in total offense.
I would take RR paired with an elite defensive coordinator over this retro Big Ten 1970's direction we are heading in now. Any day.
