So, Will Muschamp, the new head coach of Florida, has decided to ditch the spread option offense–which won the Gators two titles in the last five seasons–in favor of a pro-style attack.
This despite having two spread-style quarterbacks on the roster, including Jordan Reed, who I think, with the right coordinator, has the ability to put up Cam Newton-like numbers.
Perhaps Muschamp thinks Texas’s switch to a pro-style scheme this year paid huge dividends. The Longhorns went 5-7, after all. Maybe he thinks pro-style schemes actually work in college football, even though the evidence says they don’t.
It all adds up to a disastrous hire for Florida and, as a result, I doubt we’ll see much from the Gators on the national scene for a while.
