A Sneak Peek at Buddy Ball

Much has been made of the infusion of Steve Spurrier's Fun-n-Gun into the new generation of Stanford offensive football, but details and clarity still remain to be seen. For a statistical comparison and contrast of last year's Stanford offense with last year's Florida offense, terry steps up and provides some numbers.

Buddy Teevens has promised to bring Steve Spurrier's Florida offense to Stanford.  To get some idea of what Stanford's new offense will look like, it might be instructive to check last year's offensive statistics at Florida.  Of course, Florida's stats will not be a perfect prediction of what we will see in Stanford's new offense, but they could give us a broad idea of what to expect.

A comparison of Stanford's and Florida's offenses last year shows some very clear differences.  The numbers speak for themselves, without any need for explanation:
