I think I know the answer to this, but I would like to get a better picture of what all is entailed with a typical Spread Offense ("SO"). Can you tell I don't watch much college football? Is the SO similar to the West Coast Offense in the NFL? Is it an offense with a lot of split formations and passing? Who was its first innovator? When did it come about? Do you think it is a fad that eventually will be countered by defenses? Thanks for humoring me.
