The numbers do bear that this year's team was better defensively, but keep in mind it was against a down year for the SEC.
I agree stats do not tell the whole story. But ignoring stats ignores a huge part of the story. In sports you are ultimately what you do.
Perhaps the best passing QB in college football history really was a kid who signed with KSU in the pre-Bill Snyder era, was hurt as a Frosh and barely played in his college career. But he didn't do anything so I have to go with that guy Wuerffel who put up the best QB numbers in college football history, even if no one liked his throwing motion much.
