Why do some teams have more sets and systems than others?

A couple of reasons really. First, some teams we have more access to because of more frequent television appearances. Secondly, sometimes we have more offensive information on one team over another because some teams just run more stuff. Michigan State, for example, runs several set plays a game and usually a handful of new plays each game, so obviously their area will be heavy on the set plays. Wisconsin, on the other hand, runs a system called the "Swing Offense" and very few set plays or deviations come from that system. There offensive area will include excellent break down information on their entire system, but may not seem as though they are running much offense because of the lack of additions to their "members only" area.
