New Mexico runs, or at least used to run, a triple option that often plays three backs behind the QB. It’s as exotic an offense as there is.

Not that it’s great, but it’s a pain to prep for. Two years ago went for 350 rushing yards a game. Even last year, when bad, they hit 5.2 per carry.
Spread option now.

Cosgrove's defense allowed 550+ yards to Incarnate Word last week. I didn't know Incarnate Word was a college, let alone on that had a football team.

it's almost a good thing that Cosgrove came along with Billy C.

sealed Billy C.'s fate at Nebraska

if Callahan had picked a decent to above average D-coordinator, he may have stayed longer in Lincoln

They’ll go two- and three-back triple out of the fun. 
Not that the NM defense won’t get trampled. But no one wants to play a team that’s gonna option you that much.

His career has been weird. He built some good defenses in Madison, then stayed long enough to build bad ones. Been a mess since.

What concerns me more is the cut blocking.  I just prayed MSU got out of the Air Force game healthy a couple years ago.  And they went over the top with it, drew multiple chop block penalties.

The refs have been calling it on the edges and downfield.

Old man Ferentz weighed in on that.

I've seen it called at least once in just about every game I've watched.

UW certainly cannot afford to lose any more defenders - particularly on the DL. I hope they come out OK.

This just in: Wisconsin @ Iowa Sept. 22, 7:30 p.m. start time.

Extended tailgating with Iowa and Badger fans will no doubt fill the Johnson County Jail to overflowing. Don't let it be you. Pace yourselves.
