First off, I think the data would be better served in form of a chart (chart? chart.) or graph of some kind for each stat. You could put the offense yards and defense yards for each coach on one graph, etc. Just a thought.
That said, I also think that while on the surface they appear similar, the records are completely different (in fact, Smith went on pretty much the exact opposite trajectory Rich seems to be going on).
Also, like you said, how young were Smith's offenses compared to Rodriguez's? What about the defenses? I haven't done any research, but based on those stats I'd say it's likely that John L. Smith's offense simply got older and more veteran. Michigan's offense this year is a bit difference because even though the stats would seem to suggest a veteran offense, we're really not and can get even better. Same with the defense. Michigan may, on the surface, have similar stats to John L. Smith's, but John may have had seniors/juniors (I don't know) on defense in his third year. Nothing like what we have.
