re: Wishbone Offense: When do you remember last seeing it in CFB/NFL? - Globetrotter747
[quote]They did in '84 when they finished 79 in scoring defense? How bout his '85 defense that gave 35 to UF and UT and 27 to FSU? But they were still able to stop Switzer's NC offense...the only ranked team that they held to under 27 pts. Not all his defenses were created equal.[/quote]...

re: Smoky and the Bandit - Globetrotter747
A lot of the scenes from the movie were filmed around Atlanta. I have been to a few of the filming locations. 1. The spot where Justice kicks the guy in the ass. 2. The pond where Fred goes for a swim. 3. The race track where Big and Little Enos issue the challenge. It doesn't exist anymore...

[quote]Folks say Jimmy Johnson's Tampa-2 broke the Wishbone. Jimmy Johnson had the privilege of being on Swizter's staff beforehand; along with NFL defenses.[/quote] 1. Johnson was 0-5 against the OU Wishbone when he was at OSU. His Miami defenses stopped every offensive scheme with NFL ready tale...

[quote]Gee,tell that to LSU. Of COURSE you have to scheme... honestly didn't think your points could get more absurd but somehow you always manage to out do yourself.[/quote] Schemes are important and certainly make a big difference, but they are not nearly as important to winning as players. [...

[quote]And the example I pointed was Miami's worst defense of the Johnson/Erickson era and still held the #1 ranked team with the Heisman trophy winner to under 150 yards rushing and 18 points.[/quote] Your point seems to be that moving the ball well enough to be routinely beat the mid/late '80s ...

[quote]Relevant reading, but as stated previously Miami's defenses of that time were hardly representative of the rest of 1-A LINK ?[/quote] Good article. [quote]So the reason these teams stopped running it was because coaches retired? No idea it was such a nuanced a complicated offense. [/...

re: Wishbone Offense: When do you remember last seeing it in CFB/NFL? - Globetrotter747
[quote] God almighty,when was this ever stated? [/quote] Your criteria for an offense being effective is apparently that it had to have been better than Miami’s defense in the mid / late ‘80s, which no other offense was on a year to year basis. That’s a high standard. [quote] AU was ranked #1...

[quote]In '84? Alot of teams did...it was perhaps their worst defense of the Jimmy Johnson/Dennis Erickson era.[/quote] I don't disagree. It was a close 20-18 loss by Auburn. Do you expect wishbone teams to win every game 35-0?...

[quote]Sooo, why did they stop running it?What changed?[/quote] Barry Switzer left and the Sooners sucked for about the next ten years. [quote] Is that why they stopped running it in '85? [/quote] Perhaps to feature Bo Jackson more, as players are a helluva lot more more important than sc...

re: Wishbone Offense: When do you remember last seeing it in CFB/NFL? - Globetrotter747
[quote]Not weird at all.Team speed on defense increased dramatically in the 80's.You simply couldn't run a stacked backfield against a defense with elite speed and s more efficient option offenses which spread out defenses were developed.[/quote] Is that why Oklahoma won a national title in '85 and...

[quote]Defenses obviously caught up with it.The same as the Power I and Veer[/quote] The powerhouses that ran the wishbone won with it right up until the point they ditched it. Kind of weird when I think about it. No one caught up to the wishbone in the ‘70s and ‘80s....

1985 Oklahoma was the last national champion to run the Wishbone. They were still very strong up until Barry Switzer left following the 1988 season. That’s when the Wishbone died at the elite level of college football. ...

re: Hypothetical - Bill Clark to Auburn - Globetrotter747
I would love to see Bill Clark or Paul Johnson at Auburn strictly from an interest standpoint. I don't think Paul Johnson will ever coach again at a P5 program. He probably doesn't want to, and I don't think another P5 program would want his offensive style anyway. Not that it's ineffective, jus...
