Again College coaches are not so much about the X's and O's as pro coaches are. Spurrier's "unique hard to defend" scheme in college the Pro's disected found the weakness and exploited...and B/c Spurrier didn't have a huge talent advantage like he does in college he lost; where in college his huge talent advantage would have allowed him to compete b/c his guys were just better regardless of scheme.
Oh, no. What I'm asking is why did Spurrier's offensive system fail in the NFL and yet Belichick's has succeeded? I know they are not related. Is it because Belichick has the personnel to run his the right way while Spurrier didn't?
My bad.. I thought you were saying the two were related.
There's a bunch of variables, but Ricza basically hit the majority of the reason as to why it failed. He didn't have the personnel to run it, and in the NFL, defenses are so athletic. Spurrier wanted to go vertical a lot. He needed a big arm to make it work in the NFL. His QBs were the main issue IMO. I believe he had Shane Matthews and Patrick Ramsey as his main guys.
