NCAA must actually use a formula that isn't solely based on how many yards you have (or gave up).
No. Total offense and defense are yds / game, not total yards (since different teams have played a different number of games). If you sort the teams by yds / game at the ESPN site, our rankings are:

Defense: 59; Offense: 72.

No wonder you guys thought our offense was so bad and our defense was so good - we've played fewer games than just about everyone.

You're right. I forgot to click that column.

Does it concern anyone else that Sherrod Green is leading our team in tackles per game, with 5.7 TPG?


https://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/...dividual/34/p7


Unless I missed someone as I went through the 317 players that have more TPG than anyone on USC.

Gamecocksonline has TJ with more and Sherrod at 2nd (49 vs. 40, with both playing 7 games). Not sure why TJ wasn't listed, but that average would put him tied for 137.

https://gamecocksonline.com/document...?path=football

For perspective, our top 3 last year (through 13 games) were: Skai (93), TJ (88), Lammons (79).

Just saw where TBS tweeted an interesting stat. They said we are 17-3 since 2016 when rushing for over 100 yards.

I am willing to bet that when they score more points they tend to win as well.

Yeah, I heard Dowdle say that last night in the post game press conference. I was shocked.

Ask the Miami fan base what they think about Richt now. They’re wanting to fire him, but can’t because they extended his contract to 2023. They’re pissed...they hoped they had the link back to their glory days, instead they got an extension of Al Golden.

True, but are you saying he wouldn’t be better for recruiting in both SC and Georgia and getting to the dance or a SEC championship game at least...

Richt was 9-4 and 10-3 first 2 years (2016/2017) headed to a similar record this year.
Carolina would not fire him. Why would Miami??

TAMU was ranked #16 in week number 9 and ranked from 17, 22, 22 an 25 in other weeks. So IronFan was not far off.

Yardage per game is too generic a statistic.

If we could convince the team at the start it's already halftime?

Guess, what. It's not ESPN football, it's NCAA football.

http://stats.ncaa.org/rankings/change_sport_year_div

According to the NCAA,

Ole miss
Total offense 5
Scoring offense 21

Total Defense 123
Scoring defense 107

SC
Total offense 71
Scoring offense 70

Total Defense 55
Scoring defense 61
