Take That, Steve Spurrier

For the past couple decades, Steve Spurrier's "Fun and Gun" offense was the epitome of no-holds-barred offensive abandon in football. Today, ESPN ran a story about a new offense that makes Spurrier's look downright boring. They call it the A-11, and the best description I can offer is that it looks like the spread offense on steroids. It uses two quarterbacks on the field at the same time (yes, you read that right), eligible receivers out the wazoo, a ton of motion, and it's making waves at a California high school. Time will tell if this is a gimmick or a genuine offensive innovation, but it's sure interesting to see on the field. Check out the ESPN article for a more detailed description, and check out this video of the A-11 in action.
