The PAT Formation

I Love our PAT Formation.  Love Love Love it.  I was surprised to see that it's only resulted in two successful conversions this year but I'd think Flint would also attribute lots of easy PAT attempts to it as well.  I like the message it sends to our team. "Never take a play off, take no points for granted."  I like the message it sends to other teams.  "Take a play off and we'll take every point we can from you."  It fits in with the MO of our offense beautifully.  

My only problem with it is that I Never Get To Watch It.  TV crews are always showing replays of the scoring play and by the time they cut to the play in progress, we've already shifted back or we're in the midst of crossing the goal line.  TV commentators never offer anything more insightful than, "Here's that weird formation Oregon uses."    We finally got to see the entire play from snap to score this last week but even then we only got to see the center cluster of players.  What I want to know is if anyone wrote any sort of seminal literature on this formation.  Did Moseley or Hunt do a piece on it when we first started using it?  Did Kelly write a blog piece about it in the offseason?  How many other schools use it?  How many plays can we run from it?  How many ways have defenses lined up against it?  I think it's so beautiful I want to know everything about it but information on it is so hard to come by.
