So how did the Ducks win so many games and score so many damn points? Pace, of course. They employed the 2008 Oklahoma strategy of maximizing their per-play advantage by running more plays than anybody else. Pace is a beautiful weapon as long as you maintain that per-play advantage. Simply running plays quickly won't matter if you're going three-and-out; in fact, it can be detrimental to your cause if you are not good enough to employ the strategy. But Oregon figured something out and exploited it; with their success -- and Oklahoma's -- I'm curious to see if or how other good teams attempt to take advantage of a seemingly worthy "Goliath" strategy. (I'm also curious how long it takes defenses to catch up and adjust.)Football Study Hall, our must-read blog for anyone interested in the Xs and Os of college football, breaks down last year's BCS National Championship Game and wonders about Oregon's up-tempo attack. The Florida spin? Well, remember, our defense shut down that Oklahoma offense in the 2008 BCS National Championship Game ... and our efforts to implement a no-huddle "banzai" package didn't work out so well. So we've been on both sides of this shift.
