Mountaineer offense makes history

After setting a bowl record with 70 points last night, Dana Holgorsen gave a shout out to Bob Stitt, Colorado School of Mines head coach, for a play that they ran to perfection.

Putting a reciever in motion, quarterback Geno Smith would snap the ball, and tap it forward to the receiver who was running at full speed. If the receiver doesn't catch it, the play is called dead for an incomplete pass. Very innovative.

Geno Smith went 31 of 42 for 401 yards and a bowl record 6 touchdown passes, with 4 of those touchdowns going to Tavon Austin (who set a bowl record for touchdown receptions). Smith also ran for another touchdown to account for seven on the night. The Mountaineers scored an impressive 5 touchdowns in the 3rd quarter alone.

"You don't score 70 points by being good on offense," Holgorsen said. "You score 70 points by being good on all three sides of the ball."

Video: Mike Slive talks BCS

SEC commissioner Mike Slive took some time to discuss the BCS and the possibility of a "plus one" system with Tony Barnhart recently.

Slive notes that he "does think that there will be changes" in the system, and that the entire structure needs to be looked to see what kind of changes need to be made.

The quick video below gives some good insight from a unique perspective.

Video: National Championship teaser

Only five more days until the kickoff of the National title game.

LSU football staff released a video yesterday highlighting some prominent sports reporters picking Alabama to win...strategically followed by some highlights reminding us how good LSU is. Love it.

Quick reminder, the National Championship game begins shortly after the FootballScoop Happy Hour in San Antonio, thus Les won't be able to make an appearance this year. He did send word though that since the turf in the Superdome isn't ProGrass he won't be eating any. Les only eats the best.
