Spread offenses eat Chavis up. Maybe a little more in the past, though. Chavis had no answer for Florida in 2009 or Auburn in 2010.
i'm totally ok with chavis vs spread.
he gives up yards but points are usually hard to come by.
oregon scored points in garbage time, when the clock was our ally.
UF in 09? didn't they score like 13 points that game?
despite giving up a million yards to cam, the defense wasn't the problem in that game (they only gave up 24 points, what saban did vs cam that year was much more unforgivable).
he held WVU to 14 and 21 points in consecutive years.
what do you want against the spread 0.0 PPG??!!
i'll listen to any argument against him having defenses that faltered late in games in 2012 (bama especially) but vs the spread he's actually emulated by other DC's.
