This is Chris Brown’s magnum opus, a detailed (and I mean detailed) look at the evolution of the Air Raid offense. (Aside from all the technical expertise Chris brings to his post, the history of Kentucky under Leach makes for an intriguing tale.) As you read through the whole thing – and if you’re a fan of college football, you’re crazy if you don’t – make sure you keep asking yourself a question: will this offense work in today’s SEC?
Because that’s the question Kevin Sumlin is seeking an answer to right now. It should make for a fascinating year. As I’ve said before, having the opportunity to see how this plays out is the one totally redeeming feature of conference expansion.
