Buddy Ryan's last game at Philadelphia before getting fired was a 1991 playoff loss to the Redskins where the Eagles' offense was horrible.
Buddy brought in Jim McMahon in the middle of the third quarter when Randall Cunningham was totally ineffective. Unfortunately for Buddy and the Eagles, Jimb...

It seems like McNeese football has stagnated and been stuck on dead center the last few seasons, throughout the 90s and the first part of the aughts, it was almost a given that the Cowboys would go deep into the 1AA playoffs.

Both qbs have improved tremendously. Neither is a great college qb, but both have gotten the job done this year.

I personally like what I have seen from Stud, assuming we can continue to recruit well in the years ahead.
LSU's offense does have an identity--we look to soften up a defense and then bludgeon them in the second half.

He put up huge passing numbers, so I assume Urban Meyer's spread/West Coast influenced Stud's offense. And of course a pass-happy offense in the MAC is not unusual.
I'm sure Stud could run Les and Krag's run-heavy play-action offense.

Interesting, if Gill-blow has his facts straight, which is not a given.
The main point of interest?
Her BASE salary is 700K, with a chance to make 900K with incentives.
So basically, she is making about what Van would have been making.
