    If you had a choice between your school running a Spread Option offense by Urban Meyer, or a pro style offense by Norm Chow, which would you rather have?

    Vince Young, Urban Meyer and West Virginia have certainly changed college football the last couple years. Personally I think the Spread Option is a work of genius, and would be scared if USC ever had to face a real good team with it.

    But the greatest offense of all time still was a Pro Style Offense with a drop back QB. For my tastes, I'd take a Pro Style Offense because it's easier to run out of (no shotgun running) and the QB isn't at risk to get hurt. It's also more aesthetically pleasing to me to have a Peyton Manning-esque pocket passer than a Michael Vick type QB.

    Post your reasons why.

    The Spread is way more fun to watch, but I have to go Norm Chow style pro offense here. Look at the numbers those USC teams he had recently put up. I was hoping the Titans drafted Lineart just to see him back in that offense.

    If I were running a spread, though..Randy Walker's would be hard to say no to, God rest his soul.

    i really think its a pick your poison type thing, both offenses ive seen run well in past years, USC and Texas are good examples...pro style tends to have players(not only the QB) more NFL ready, where as it seems the spread always has to have its players adjust...


    But I guess id say Spread is more dangerous with the right weapons, then pro style with the right weapons...its been proven its almost impossible to defend a qb who can run and throw well, especially if the offense is confusing leaving the defense flat footed...pro style has the play action yes, but not many gimmicks, when its a pass its a pass, in the spread plays start like runs then turn into passes, or vice versa, and i feel like with lesser talent you can do wonders with the spread, ala Utah (alex smith, urban meyer)

    I feel like you cannot have a decent team, let them run the pro style offense and have a great year, where as you can have them run the spread and regardless of talent id say the chances would be greater for them to win more games

    Spread Option for college. It is more fun to watch and with a good quarterback it can be really hard to stop.

    i think it depends on what players you are working with too but if i had to chose one for my team i would pick Pro style offense. i think the option can be more fun to watch in college football but i trust a good pro style offense more

    Pro style easy. It gets you're Superstar Players ready for the Pros and plus the Pro Offense is just better.

    They'd still have John Brantley.

    Leak really isn't that good of a runner. He could move, but he was a pro style QB in a gimmicky offense.

    Why do you guys think that Chris Leak didnt do well in Meyers offense? if u think about it he seemed like a perfect fit for that. Could run, and was an excellent passer.

    spread o--it can be a running offense like wvu has now, but rodriguez has made it fit his qb--at tulane it was a passing o and at clemson it was 50-50

    i took the spread because i think that it is easier to run and understand at the college level. I think that the spread allows an offense more options and can confuse the D more because of the QB's better ability to run while still being able to pass.
