2018 Texas Tech Defense #111
2018 Texas St Defense #56

1) those are total defense (yards), not scoring defense (points) - one is an indicator, one actually matters to win/loss.

in scoring def: txst is #71 @ 27.7ppg; tt is #86 @ 31.1ppg

2) those numbers don't mean much anyway, because of how disparate our competition is. their fbs opponents avg over 7 ppg scored more than ours, and individually it's even more so:
we faced 4 opp avging over 30ppg, they faced 6
we faced 1 opp avging over 35ppg, they faced 4
we faced 0 opp avging over 40ppg, they faced 3


Whatever stat you want to choose, we had better defense...bottom line
Stats wise we faced tougher defenses..so ying/yang
Don't be surprised when defense regresses that's all

sigh...no, not bottom line. we hold opponents to 4 fewer points per game, but their opponents score 7 more points per game than ours do. do you think we would fare the same against their schedule? or that they would against ours? that's why opponents matter. you're comparing apples and oranges.

Why you continually use quotes in a thread is beyond me Saul. For fucks sake just reply without quoting.

Why not use quotes? That doesn't make any sense...

Saul has a thing about people overusing quotes, and that's why usually, folks use them so liberally.

Like I just did now.

Does anyone else like to play the game where you see how many posts it takes for a thread to go completely off topic? Because this one barely made it a page, and that's pretty impressive.

If people honestly think if we played Texas Tech's schedule our defense would be ranked better than Tech's current ranking then there is no point arguing, they are already too far gone.
