He didn't say this in the presser, so maybe it was radio show or something

But I have some issues with this if he actually said it. Like he has a fundamental misunderstanding of modern football, which I don't think he does. I understand not wanting to have to win in a shootout, but in the modern era of college football, you better be prepared to do it. He knows you better not be bringing FGs to a game vs. Utah State, Boise and Nevada, or you're gonna lose in the end no matter how good your defense is. All college teams have to be prepared to win shootouts. I mean, he won his national championships in a spread offense that was super physical and ran the ball down everyone's throats. Look at the best teams in the past 5 years, pro and college - all run spread elements.

The spread and playing physical are not mutually exclusive, and CSU has a ton of spread principals, as they should. In fact, in his presser he said he wanted us to be able to do more spread, once we get the more basic execution down to open up the offense and take advantage of the great ball skills of our TEs. This quote makes it seem like Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Cincinnati, all of which have gone almost full spread, aren't physical teams, which is dumb.

And for the 1000th time, Alabama invented the turnover belt and just so happens to be the most successful team ever, so I don't think that was the problem. The being bad at defense thing was the problem.
