Not a helluva lot to discuss. They're pretty much the same thing.

Now you want contrast, compare the 'Bone with a single back, trips left,
x-motion formation.

If you need examples of both, tune in to the guys in the blue shirts on Sept.
22.

SSDD, with one exception.  The 'bone spreads the defense out a little
more.

You sir are a man of great wisdom and clarity of thought.

I think the wishbone is the single most dangerous offense in
existence.  Unfortunately, it's also the one that requires the most
discipline in execution and thus has fallen out of favor in these
times of lessened practice hours.

I'd also put in the FlexBone above after the Power-I...it's less
deceptive than the other two, but still gives a lot of options for the
defense to have to react to.

It is also the source of the Oklahoma Touchdown: backs running to glory
on the expectation that they will receive the ball, totally unaware of
the fact that the ball is in fact lying on the ground somewhere, under a
pile of sweaty men, aching to be free.

That was my dad's nomenclature, and our shared belief, at least.

I'd be interested in seeing some long-term turnover rates for wishbone
offenses vs. more conventional offenses vs. pass-happy offenses.

Are you kidding? The wishbone is for pussies, depending on some form of
trickery. The power I is a man's formation. Except when you pass to the
TE.

Unless that tight end's name was Johnny Mitchell.  Then it was DOMINATE.

As far as I know, the only fundamental difference is, one of the
tailbacks moves over a couple feet and stands directly behind the
fullback. I fail to see how this really changes anything. You've still
got three backs more or less bunched together in the backfield, no?

And what's wrong with "trickery?" A well-run triple-option is a
beautiful sight to behold, unless you're an OLB trying to make a
decision...

My memory is a bit different.  My memory is that it was the source of
Oklahoma running backs running to glory on the expectation that they
will receive the ball, totally unaware that they won't get it until 20
FSCKING YARDS PAST THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE, AND THEY WON'T SEE IT COMING
ANY MORE THAN THE DEFENSE DOES, THOSE BASTARDS!!!!!

I do think it's true that it was more prone to the turnover.  If you
think about it, it really makes sense.  An option pitch properly
executed is definitely more susceptible to a fumble than a forward
pass is to an interception.  However, it is exactly that which ALSO
makes it far more dangerous to the defense, at the same time.

Big difference.  The wishbone offers much more flexibility in
direction and angle than the power-I does.

HUGE difference.

Since you've decided to take the *** route, why not just PASS the ball
now, maybe with a play-pass and pump-fake? I am all sweaty now.

Power I gains yards inside by a team imposing their will, as men.

Bone gains yards inside as a girly complement to outside run, as Hanlin.
No wonder he likes the huskers.....they run out of the bone and use
effeminite means to run their offense...
