You see, the NFL has an huge ego. They are the big brother in the house. They’re the guy who sets the rules and trends, not follows them. The NFL had certain philosophies and ran certain schemes, therefore NCAA teams had to conform and run similar schemes, to better prepare collegiate players for the NFL. The “Pro-Style” offense started to rear its head in college because of this. However, that has changed in recent years. No longer is the NFL dictating these things to the NCAA, it’s the other way around.
