    I just wanted to run through a comparison of a few basic stats from the last two games against Miami and Tennessee:

    Stat..................UM/UT
    UF points.............16/31
    Opp. points..........21/17
    UF yards............413/382
    Opp. yards.........212/220
    UF plays.............77/76
    UF yds/play........5.4/5.0
    Opp. plays...........53/57
    Opp. yds/play.....4.0/3.9
    TO margin...........-4/+3
    UF TOP............38.3/39.5

    Two patterns jump out at me: (1) The similarity of virtually every stat is remarkable, except (2) turnover margin, which is night and day. When looking for the difference between these two games, turnovers have to be where you start...and probably end. In addition, many of the turnovers in both games, from UF and UT, were somewhat unforced. The outcome of the Tennessee game obviously was much better for us than that of the Miami game, but it looks like the game itself might not have been significantly different.

    Sacks Allowed: Last year 39 - This year Toledo/Miami 2 each game (4 sacks).

    Vs. UT Murphy didn't get sacked. The only game last year with 0 sacks allowed was against Missouri.

    IMO, Sacks allowed is as much on the QB as it is on the OL for not getting rid of the ball.
