Having a good offensive line leading to a QB having a great year isn't unrealistic. It affects several facets of offensive production other than how well a player like Dylan will perform. Imagining, and hoping for, that success isn't a stretch of the imagination.

You're absolutely right that anything is possible in collegiate football. However, using a single play in one game and then stretching its impact to a 12 game regular season is beginning to stretch the fabric the premise of this thread is sewn upon.

The numbers over the last two years in SEC play demonstrate a low number of sacks doesn't equal fewer losses. The numbers in NCAA play—using the last two national champions as example—tell the same story.

Closer to home...

2011 was a 11-2 year for UofSC: 2009 a seven win season. There's a total of a six sack differential separating those two seasons; 30 to 36.

I think a better indicator of achieving big things for this team this season will be the creation of turnovers and actually scoring after doing so.

No one stat dictates championships, but that was one of the biggest recurring gripes for us last season. The season before that, we did a pretty good job creating turnovers and scores from them.

Then again, the W/L column result was the same...

I hate the off season.
