As part of his ridiculously throrough diary the following point was made....
The Anti-ROD camp (in order of argument strength):
M16 Makes the argument that our offense is ridiculously good thanks to our current head coach, except when he looks at the numbers, the offense really isn't all we're making it out to be:
Points per game: 20th
Time of Possession: 92nd
Third Down Conversions: 61st
Red Zone Efficiency: 51st
These statistics were not cherry-picked from a group of low ranking stats. Instead, I chose four random stats that I feel are extremely important in terms of offensive performance. In light of these statistics, it is clear that our offense is not some unstoppable force. It is good. But it isn't the "we score like our hair is on fire every time we touch the ball" machine that some on this board make it out to be. Not even close.
I was gearing up to debate M16 based on "just gotta wait, man -- the offense is all sophomores" but then against Illinois our offense looked a hell of a lot like an unstoppable force that scores like our hair is on fire every time we touch the ball (except when we turn it over).
Just wanted to say I'm an idiot, the offense is purely amazing. After screaming at my TV all game after PSU I wasn't exactly level headed. The offense is unreal. See you guys (and RR I hope) in Indianapolis next December....
