Chris Brown drops something like 10,000 words on the history and evolution of the Air Raid offense. Be sure to pack a sack lunch.

He would weave reed into papyrus nad cerate writnig!
This sounds like something that belongs on the History Channel.
We're talking about an offense used at BYU, Kentucky, Valdosta State, and Texas Tech. That's enough for me to consider it largely pointless.
Wow. So in your mind anything historical or slightly niche is pointless? There's no point to learning either about the specifics of a given scheme or the broader process of how schemes are born and evolve over time?
Nobody's forcing you to read the article. And you'd be surprised how many people watch the History Channel. They're called "intelligent and well-informed."
Maybe H2 these days. Their main channel is 25% aliens, 25% pawn shop shows, 25% ghosts, and 25% actual history and that might generous.
yeah, but that show about pawn shop ghosts is pretty educational.
You forgot Hitler. Lots of Hitler.
That's the old history channel. Hitler mostly comes up as a result of aliens or ghosts these days.
this article is in dire need of editing / proofreading.
Ignore the chatter -- this is a really good article, well worth the time investment. And for those who need contemporary relevance, it gives a good insight into West Virginia's offense, which is useful even for those of us who have seen the Air Raid in action at other Big 12 schools.
More touchdowns, more comebacks, and more snow! First impressions from a Week 14 that had it all.
