long journey in which we have analyzed a group of statistical indicators that point out a team’s success or lack of success at the point of attack.  These indicators in turn lead us to pointspread success when used in ways that have proven to be historically profitable.  This is a companion article to <a

Rush” theory.  This is yet another example of the fact that you can’t know where you are going, unless you know where you have been.  At the conclusion of the article, I will repeat the outstanding record of College Football Double Rushers.  </p> <p>In the chart that follows, I will point out the 2014 CFB teams that were dominated by their opposition at the point of attack.  The common characteristic of these teams is that they were all outrushed by an average of more than 100 YPG.  Along with other columns listed, this list will help us to isolate teams who are likely to be <a
