View Full Version : Single wing vs. spread option

Found a clip of Michigan's romp of 'SC in the '48 Rose Bowl(still the most
lopsided game in Pasadena to date!)--when you the see the way the Wolves
ran the single wing to perfection that day,anyone see some simularites
between that formation & the spread option attack Rodriguez suceeed in
Morgantown & trying to do the same in Ann Arbor this season????

What caught my attention was how their audibles seemed so military-like...

There are some similarities but WVU is obviously more revolutionized and quicker. I'm still skeptical on how quickly Michigan will react to Rodriguez's offensive philosophies considering they have been so accustomed to Big Ten play.

Yeah,you wonder how the folks that Rod inherited can adjust to his system,
'specially finding a QB after Mallett bolted for Fayetteville since he knew that
wouldn't fit him whatsoever! BTW,also noticed that the UM teams of Crisler &
Oosterbaan often ran from an unbalanced line,with 4 linemen to the center's
right,compared with just 2 to his left!

Wow, that was fun. That offense ran like a Swiss Watch. To have shut out The Trojans though, that Defense was also AWESOME. Thanks for the LINK. The Best School is the Old School. :D

Here's clip of the 1950 Tennesse-Vandy game(won by the Vols,who later
beat the Horns in the Cotton Bowl--only loss was to a 4-6 Miss State--went
on to finish #1 the next year,BTW)--enjoy!!!
