    Total Offense yd/g: 112th (SEC: 14th)
    Total Offense yds/play: 112th (SEC 14th)

    3rd down conversions allowed: 10th (SEC: 1st)

    Turnover margin: 76th (SEC: 11th)
    Time of Possession: 1st (SEC: 1st)

    Summary over 9 games:

    * Our defense is still, on paper, the most productive in the SEC, and we still do the best job in conference of getting off the field on 3rd down.
    * We unequivocably have the least productive offense in the SEC.
    * Our OL officially gives up the most TFL in the SEC and 3rd most sacks
    * We lead the nation in time of possession but rank only 90th nationally in number of plays run... which I find a dizzying statline. It suggest our offense might not tire out an opposition defense (i.e. pound and ground) in the way WM intended and we might benefit from hurrying up the plays somewhat?
    * We have one of the worst turnover margins in the SEC - you can't win games if you don't take care of the football!
    * Interestingly for such a stout defense, we don't generate many sacks or tackles for loss. I guess that's a scheme thing because it doesn't seem to have affected our overall production?
    * All in all, we're still scraping the barrel on offense and have been sliding further into the quagmire all season - it's a declining trend and remains so. I wonder how low we will finish? To say we need to 'evaluate' at the end of the season is worrying to me too. I guess WM is just biting his lip (you'd hope he can see what we can all see) but at this stage the entire offensive staff is in dire trouble. If we had even a semblence of a passable offense we could do so, so much better!

    Wow...how are we #1 in TOP? I don't recall us being able to keep the ball on offense very long.

    I understand having a statistically good defense go hand-in-hand with winning the TOP battle, but just imagine how good our defense would be if they had an offense that could put up some points and take some pressure off.

    Saddest part is that most of the teams we've played so far this year aren't even really that good defensively. USC and FSU might even bring us further towards the bottom if that's possible.

    That's my line of thinking, too.

    I guess we lead TOP because we put together (seemingly) several long drives only to cough up a turnover, miss a field goal or get forced into a dinky punt.

    That's a stat I should have included, by the way. Last year, Caleb was 11th in FG%, 4th in FGM individually and Florida was 16th in FG%.

    This year we are 104th (58.8%) despite being 25th in Field Goal attempts.

    And not to leave out punting - last year 8th (avg. 44.68), this year we are 73rd (40.86), and yet we are (surprisingly) only 93rd in punts per game! It certainly feels like more...

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why time of possession means absolutely nothing.

    We lead TOP cause we don't snap the ball until there's less than 6 seconds on the playclock on every play.

    We milk the play clock and get extra plays because of penalties.

    Florida State: 4th Nationally in overall defense.
    South Carolina: 25th

    FYI, only LSU at 24th is a better defense than we have faced all year.

    And just for giggles, FSU's offense is 9th and South Carolina is 37th (only Missouri - 15th, Georgia - 22nd, and LSU 34th rank as slightly better offenses that we've had to face than SC...)

    Yes, aside from OL play, kicking may be the other main reason for the slide.

    If your goal is to score more points than the other team, why not allow your offense to become the most innovative, physical and point scoring machine as possible while allowing your defense to become the most physical, dominating and stifling machine as possible? I just don't understand the philosophy that to win, you must only have one dominant phase while the other must merely maintain itself in support.

    Wouldn't the team be better with an offense which scores 50 points a game and a defense which is ferocious and dominant? I don't understand the idea of only having one or the other.

    Just for giggles (I know, I'm a glutton for punishment), I tracked UF's plays on first down during yesterday's game. Here are the results (entirely unofficial, of course):

    First half: 6 possessions, yielding 16 plays run on first down of which 12 runs and 4 pass attempts (3 were incomplete, 1 resulted in a sack/fumble). Of the 12 runs, 8 were run between the tackles resulting in "gains" of 2, 0, 1, 3, 5, 5, -2 and 11 (Taylor was stuffed to the right, but cut back left for a good gain). The 4 runs outside were a toss sweep for 8, QB keep left for -4, a pitchout for -1, and an option to the short side for -4.

    Average rush on first down: 12 for 24, 2 YPC.
    Average pass: 0-3, plus 1 sack and a fumble.

    Heading out to the UF soccer game (SEC championship) now. Will post 2nd half later, if interested.

    Bingo. I've seen Muschamp purposely milk the clock in the middle of the game just to call timeout.

    Unbelievable stats Limey, good lord.

    Regarding TOP vs low # of plays, I am of the opinion we just don't have enough offense installed to run a lot of plays. No half-decent staff would run the same ineffective plays over and over if they had a better offensive scheme prepared. Pease either cannot coach it, or Muschamp won't let him improve it. Doesn't matter which, it's a complete loser. Muschamp's demeanor in pressers tells me he's either one classy man for not hanging his staff out to dry or he realizes he's the one that's getting what he asked for from his staff.

    We practice as bad as we play, guaranteed. If Saban sat in on one of our practices he would probably chuckle and feel for Muschamp.

    Good point. They slow the game down to cover up how few plays they have to run?

    Why stop there? Put him in charge of the whole team.

    I want Muschamp gone. And I want him gone today. No more BS. No more delays. No more excuses.

    Mr. Foley, do your job.

    You can see how long it takes Murphy to receive the play call. Sometimes the play clock is under twenty seconds. We're having to burn timeouts sometimes because we cannot line up in time.
