Interesting quote from Darren Evans after the Boston College win this week.
"I kind of thought our offense would be a little bit more high-powered, just with all the weapons that we have,” Evans said. “It’s tough. The first week it was really tough. … It’s kind of tough to explain what exactly is going on or where we’re weak at right now.”
Ummmm, Darren, pssssst. We know what exactly is going on, we know where you're weak at right now........
Some food for thought to start your week:
--We are currently ranked 57th in the nation in points per game (scratching the level of the good side of the 50th percentile with 120 D1 teams). 57th in the nation, with one ACC game, one WAC game, one CUSA game, and one friggin D1AA game.
--We are currently ranked 70th in the nation in yards per game (below the 50th percentile with 120 D1 teams). 70th in the nation, with one ACC game, one WAC game, one CUSA game, and one friggin D1AA game.
--To put that in perspective, and by "in perspective" I mean we're not exactly playing SEC defenses right now.....our opponents that have essentially held us down to be ranked 57th and 70th respectively......are currently defensively ranked: Boise 49th, ECU 114th, and BC 31st.
--You'll note I left out JMU. For one, because their defensive rank in the 120 is unavailable, because they're not in OUR TRUCKING DIVISION. And because, even if considered, it would be skewed by their recent 10-3 win over the Fightin' Falwells of Liberty. We scored 16 points on a team that just beat Liberty 10-3. But I digress. My point is, taking an average of those three D1 defenses we've faced, is that we've played against an average of a 65th ranked defense.
--We are a currently a below average offense, facing below average defenses thus far.
--In other news, water is wet.
FBS Mission Statement:
We at FBS believe that offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring bears the largest share of the blame for years of sub-par output from some of the most talented players ever to set foot on Worsham Field. We believe the main objective of the VT football program - a national championship - will escape us as long as Stinespring is making the calls. We therefore advocate the improvement of our football program through the replacement of our offensive coordinator.
