I really believe that in spite of the love affair with the Spread/read option offense the real way to build a great team is by building the defense. Some of the most impressive teams I have seen this year are defensively orientated. Alabama, Stanford, LSU, Notre Dame, Florida, to name a few. Oregon has a great offense but were stopped when they met a tough defense. I really think that Oklahoma and Texas started losing their edge when they seemed to place a higher premium on offense than defense. I don't care if we go to the spread but I think the emphasis should be on building a stout defense.
