When does "great offense" equal crappy defense?

    When I created this thread a decade ago, such games were an anomaly. These days, it's almost become the norm. :roll1:

    Because offense, not defense, gets TV ratings...Woody would be disgusted.

    I recorded this and watched it this morning. Leach was ahead 49-17 with 5 minutes to go in the third, then shitty UCLA scored 50 points in the last 20 minutes! They scored on a kickoff return, a punt return, and on a 1-play 96 yard TD with pathetic tackling attempts by Wazzu - that play was right after Leach didn't follow his own beliefs by punting from midfield on 4th and a short 5 yards.

    Wazzu's receivers got repeatedly stripped while being tackled, once when a first down would have just about iced the game; their QB threw for 9 TDs, the most in FBS since Keenan was at Houston, the 6 total turnovers allowed for a team to score 63 and lose in regulation. Leach is a great offensive mind, and a quotable national treasure, but not a great overall coach.

    Louisville 62
    Wake Forest 59

    It's Wake Forest and Louisville in 2019. Neither team screams "great offense" against anyone with a pulse.
