It all began in 2011, when Oregon volleyball coach Jim Moore got a knock on his door shortly after the Ducks' season wrapped up.

It's almost unheard of _ a quarterback cranking out a string of 13 straight games with never an off day. But Auburn's Cam Newton spent the 2010 season redefining what's possible at that position.
Steve Spurrier, the ball coach who knows a little about offense, said the game could wind up 60-55. Kirk Herbstreit, the TV analyst who knows a little about these teams, said defenses must bristle when they keep hearing about scores in the 55-53 range. The bookmakers in Las Vegas, who don't throw out their numbers just for fun, envision something more like 38-35.
