Responding to you because I respect you.
He's winning. He has proven Tressel-ball works at Minnesota. Why would he change that?
Against Syracuse, Minnesota was up 14-7 at the half, Minnesota immediately went into a shell defense and started killing the clock on offense. It led to a pick six, and they scored seven off the back of a great special teams play and aggressive push at the end zone. At no point did I think that Minnesota would lose that game, even when Syracuse was airing the ball out.
He found a formula that works at Minnesota. I much prefer this to Mason who couldn't hold a 30-point lead, much less a 7-point lead.
