Limiting college football's offense creates clear winners and losers

(Continued)

But Strong’s 12-1 record at Louisville and a lopsided win against Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl are strong evidence that his plan works.

The matter now goes to the NCAA's Playing Rules Oversight Panel, where it faces an uncertain fate. A case for change built around safety isn’t overly convincing. The notion that defenses can’t substitute between plays has merit.

Break it down this way: Do you favor more offense from those who play the game like Johnny Manziel - or less?

That one’s not even close.
