All that offense keeps fans coming to the stadium
Question of the Day
When West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck was looking for a new football coach, he wanted one who would not only win, but do it in a way that got Mountaineers fans excited _ excited enough to pack Milan Puskar Stadium seven or eight times a season.
West Virginia fans had plenty to be excited about on Saturday, when the eighth-ranked Mountaineers beat Baylor 70-63, the centerpiece of yet another college football weekend filled with high-scoring marquee games.
Several factors have contributed to the trend of high-powered offenses.
There is the improved development of quarterbacks, the prevalence of spread offenses, and the up-tempo offenses that squeeze in as many snaps as possible.
Another reason is money. The old adage is true: Offense sell tickets.
