With many of the rule changes favoring the offense, the scoring is higher and defenses aren't what they used to be. Take Alabama for instance, their D averaged I believe 19 points a game. That is incredibly high for a defensive team like bama, and yet they led the SEC in D when it came to points allowed. It used to be a team that ran the ball effectively, played strong D, and played special teams solidly came out the winner. Now, it seems college ball is more about outscoring your opponents verses shutting them down. Last year, we had the tools to do just that, score and score quickly. It will be interesting to see if we can maintain that with more of a running game. The key questions for me is will Jones be able to pass effectively and will the OL be able to open holes for our backs? If either of those two fail, it could mean serious trouble. Bottom line, with the changes in college football, we are still going to have to put lots of points on the board imho.
