Florida International
Bowling Green
UCF
Army
Western Michigan
Toledo
Hawai'i
Wyoming

Yards don't tell the whole story.

To me they need to average around 32-33 points per game this seasons, yards are nice and that needs to improve as well but they need to get away from the games where they are scoreing 17-21 points, those are tough games to win... Obvioulsy the goal is to get to be a top 50 O, Top 50 defense and we should be doing well.. Certain games one side will need to step up over the other.

A few more explosive plays and things should look much better

go this is from last year, yards on left axis (1st to 120th left to right) and the yards they gained on the right axis.

not the whole story but yards is a pretty good predictor of points by the end of the year. PPG is almost a perfect trendline for the YPG data, i think it's a better fit than most people would expect. opportunism only goes so far. hope this puts to rest the yards shmards argument

some of the downward spikes are michigan and baylor, stanford spikes right up after baylor. texas tech didn't score as much as yards would predict

i'd be willing to bet that the multiple offenses do pretty well in scoring per yards gained (above the line but further right) but they don't gain as much as spreads (below the line but further left)

from cfbstats into excel.

I'm less worried about the numbers now that the team has finally had an impressive performance. We are 5-2 and if we can play somewhere near the level of the W Va. game, we are going to have a great year, if not, the numbers look more meaningful.

Yep, so if we can get closer to 400 looks like the points will most likely follow

our defense has the ability to stop teams. if our offense could click on all cylinders like the WVU game, we would definately be 6-1 right now and maybe even 7-0. this is my opinion, but the casual fan would more like to see an exciting offense than a stifling defense.

we stick out like a sore thumb among the teams near us. for a team that doesn't move the ball that well, we score a lot. we're the opposite of ND who has 98 yard drives end in fumbles at the 1.

Wyoming 30.3 421.8
Kansas 30.1 405.3
Notre Dame 30.1 438.9
USC 30.1 432.6
Texas 30 385.3
Syracuse 29.9 349.1
Miami (Florida) 29.4 366.9
Arkansas State 29.4 435.7
SMU 29.3 431
Michigan State 29.3 388.9
UTEP 29.3 391.3

one more interesting thing about yards versus points.

I subtracted each teams rank in points (1 being best, 120 worst) from their rank in yards (for this year). If you don't move the ball well but score a lot, you'll have a higher number

so these are the teams that do the most scoring with the least offense

LSU is 15th in points, 78th in yards. We're 53 in pts, 92 in yards

Are these teams on the lucky side?

LSU
Kansas State
Louisiana-Lafayette
North Carolina State
Syracuse
Rutgers
Vanderbilt
Iowa
Miami (Florida)
Wake Forest

at the end of the day, yards really dont matter. its all about points scored vs points against. you can call me einstein. ;)

UPDATED 11-1-11 - NEW RANKINGS IN RED (Last week in Black)
OFFENSE:

Rushing... 124.7 (119.63) yds/game... #88 (#98)
Passing... 224.43 (216.63) yds/game... #66 (#73)
Total Offense... 349.14 (336.25) yds/game... #92 (#96)
Scoring Offense... 29.86 (27.38) pts/game... #54 (#64)
Sacks Allowed... 2.00 (2.00) sacks/game... #51 (#62)
Passing Efficiency... 143.97 (139.04)... #42 (#48)

DEFENSE:

Rushing... 99.43 (105.13) yds/game... #15 (#20)
Passing... 299.43 (286.75) yds/game... #116 (#111)
Pass Efficiency D... 135.62 (138.13)... #82 (#89)
Total Defense... 398.86 (391.88) yds/game... #73 (#69)
Sacks... 2.43 (2.50) sacks/game... T-#29 (T-#27)
TFL... 6.86 (6.63) TFL/game... #35 (#40)
T/O Margin... +0.57 (+0.63)... T-#29 (#24)
Scoring Defense... 26.75 Points Allowed/Game... #64

After progressing last week offensively against WVU, SU slipped back down a few spots to #96 in total offense after an abysmal showing against L'Ville. The lack of execution, missed open receivers, missed blocking assignments and a conservative offensive gameplan can obviously be attributed to this drop.

Defensively, we progressed from last week even though we gave up 27 points. Overall, our defense improved it's position going from 73rd after WVU to 69th after L'Ville. Take away the 2 big scoring plays and our defense actually played a good game. We continue to be aggressive with our blitz packages and rank in the top quartile of the country in sacks.

Overall, this team has to be more way more aggressive on offense. If we are going to give up almost 27 points/game, we need to score more than 27 (captain obvious here). I am not a fan of Hackett. I'm putting it on record. In addition to the lack of offense, these stupid penalties are killing us. That blame goes on everyone, but mainly the players. The refs aren't going to let stuff like that fly, so knock it off. Defensively, our D shows really great things at times but when you give up 2 HUGE scoring plays, it makes all of the great plays look cloudy. Our secondary is constantly getting burned. If we can continue to get alot of pressure on opposing QB's, alot of that should change.

We need to improve every facet of our game this weekend in order to lock up bowl eligibility. Enough already.

defense is 69, damn close to average and I would say that sounds about right. I can get my mind around that. Offense 96, far below average, again I can get my mind around that. The play that I watch on the field makes sense.

IMO, the defense is what I would descrobe as inconsistent.. and their ranking would prove that. Offense, still just stinks minus 1 game out of 8. That isn't inconsistent, that just flat out stinks

and the defense played young, inexpereienced players first half of the year due to injuries ...

You're confusing stats with faith and hope. You know what hope isn't...

The Louisville game, while dismal, was a classic example of a game that could have been compeltely different with different results on a small number of plays. If the refs had called the push-off on the first touchdown...if Marrone had not called that time out...and if Nassib had hit a couple of those open receivers downfield that could have been a very different game. That's not the same as getting it done but it means that it would take major chances to be successful.

exactly, I would say the D has been relatively consistent. The defense has given up many big plays this year that have resulted in many points, but generally the D has been way more consistent than the O. Now that they have a completely healthy team, I would imagine that our D numbers continue to slightly improve. If they are kept on the field for the majority of the game without any offensive support, their numbers won't improve. Long and short, offense needs to step up.

That's funny. Both the O and the D are 64th in the country.
