Purpose Losing/Play Calling

Deece made the point on the CyHawk State of the Nations show (which I love, despite sometimes being unable to handle Miller) last week that Chizek may have basically refused to throw to Bylthe/spread the field because he's trying to establish the new Cyclone style/identity/etc. (Dude has given the same analysis multiple times, including last season re: McDermott.)

I really found this fairly ridiculous, even more so because he was supportive of this strategy. The idea that "I'll lose/run un productive plays because I'm establishing some macho attitude" is so incredibly misguided... and yet, sometimes I actually get that vibe from ole Gene.

Anyway, this is mostly just a side rant on a major problem in sports, namely the idea that certain ways of playing are somehow morally superior to others. (Small ball over walks/power in baseball, SEC behemoth ball over a spread offense in football etc.) All that should matter is winning, no matter how you do it...
