The stat referenced is a ratio so the # of RZ chances is irrelevant


That’s all I’m driving at.

For overall defense stats, the absolute number if opportunities totally matters. Our defense has awful stats. Lots of RZ possessions, even with a strong success rate, is not an awesome pair with all the explosive TDs.

Totally agree that we are better suited to RZ situations, which I suspect is why we were trying to play so soft for the first month of the season. Didn't work great :( but it’s getting better

  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
  Will take either outcome. -- WahooOsFan88 10/21/2021 12:11PM

  Not sure...both top 30ish Ds - statistically. -- WahooOsFan88 10/21/2021 12:34PM
  They should be 6-2. -- hooman#1 10/21/2021 7:46PM
