LAMM AT LARGE: Video game offense is here to stay in college football

todayOctober 12, 2021

Background
Before you round up a mob and gather the tar and feathers to run your school’s defensive coordinator out of town, take a look around. No one plays defense anymore.
Ok, the Georgia Bulldogs are an anomaly, maybe Iowa, too, but what other major schools can stop anybody?
I looked at the top 50 games from last weekend and the numbers were mind-boggling. Three schools scored 48 or more points, and LOST. In all, 10 teams scored 31 points or more and lost. Two games featured more than 100 points, 5 games more than 80, 5 games more than 70 and 9 games more than 60.
The spread offense and the rules-makers get the credit. The game’s leaders knew more offense meant more TV viewers and that’s what they got. We live in a video game world. Grandpas can hardly relate.
Go easy on your beleaguered DC. Defensively, 30 is the new 10.

LAMM AT LARGE: Nikola Jokic Goes Back to Back

We live in an age when the NBA is loaded with giants who run like gazelles and jump like tigers. Then there's Nikola Jokic. The  Nugget's 6-11, 284-pound center may be the league's most unathletic player. He lopes up and down the court and on a good day may be able […]
