Thread: #1 in Rushing... but other stats just as interesting

  1. #1

    Default #1 in Rushing... but other stats just as interesting

    I was having some fun perusing the stats at ESPN ( http://espn.go.com/college-football/...PerRushAttempt )

    #1 in total rushing yards
    #1 in rushing yards per attempt
    #1 in rushing touchdowns
    #2 in rushing first downs
    #4 in interceptions
    #10 in 4th down conversions
    #11 in fewest penalties
    #14 in field goal percentage

    Kevin Ellison #29 total QBR

    With all of the chatter and hand wringing over the potential loss of our rushing tradition... it looks like our coaching staff and our team is exceeding everyone's expectations.

    Word to the teams to come "Be afraid...be very afraid"

    #4 in interceptions

    That may be one of the biggest contributing factors of our record and will probably save our butts against Idaho and Gast.

    Not sure where we rank in sacks but we already have more than last season.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    our defense reminds me of the NO Saints when they won the super bowl. They gave up a lot of yards, but were good in the redzone and got a ton of turnovers.

    We're also averaging 7.64 yards per play, good for #3 nationally.

    For a benchmark, last year's Florida State team averaged 7.67 yards per play.

    Our offense is good.

    And in this age of pass happy college football our defense isn't bad either.

    Indeed. #26 nationally in pass yards per play allowed (6.2 ypp).

    After watching some of the Idaho vs Texas State game last night, I think the biggest thing our defense will do to help us win will be getting a lot of sacks. Idaho gave up like 7 in the first half.

    More importantly, our offense is good LATE. In the fourth quarter of many games we are getting consistent big runs, 6-12 yards a pop. That means we are wearing teams down and imposing our will on them. Kudos to the OL for that.
