Are we perhaps talking past each other here?


I understand your point of comparing apples and apples, but it would seem that long TDs would have an impact on our defensive stats. I'm thinking that the long TDs given up (for example, in both the UNC and L'ville games) reduce opponents' opportunities for RZ TDs, because they only transit the RZ en route to the EZ. They reduce RZ possessions. As I mentioned above, I think much of it has to do with our defense being far more effective on a compressed field, where we're not as vulnerable to opponents' speed.

  In part because we've given up so many big-play TDs? -- Williamsburg Wahoo 10/21/2021 12:05PM
  It's TD%, so no. independent of big plays -- PWillis52 10/21/2021 2:45PM
  Not entirely, but probably contributing factor. -- Kris  10/21/2021 12:15PM
  Limit the big play(s) -- WahooOsFan88 10/21/2021 12:02PM
  Either that or Clemson forces a bunch of turnovers -- hooman#1 10/21/2021 12:03PM

  They should be 6-2. -- hooman#1 10/21/2021 7:46PM
