If Bart is really concerned about fast-paced offenses being to risky for a tiny minority of his players, he has several options:
1) He can move those players to offense as soon as the trait is discovered.
2) He can bench those players for games against teams that run such offenses.
3) He ca...

Do any of you honestly think Bryant would have been in favor of a one-game playoff between the top two teams after Jan 1, 1980?
Dude was all about innovation - so long as it wasn't to his disadvantage.

I suppose it's only a matter of time before Bert has his players fake their deaths.
Can't you just imagine the scene: Bert tearfully signing a death certificate as the undertakers place the limp, lifeless body of a poor third-string DB into a waiting hearse emblazoned with the Razorback logo.

Winning 11 gsmes in a single year is a notable achievement, particularly in light of the the fact that the 11-game regular season didn't become mandatory for all Divison 1-A schools until 1973.
How many HCs in your school's history have attained that lofty plateau? Here's AU's list:

He was spending too much time on his side career as a gangsta rapper.
