1961 team,25 points scored against is surreal.
My Gosh,think about it!
I agree. I thought last year's team was one of the best ever. Even after the loss I thought we were at a 10-14 pt better team than LSU and they were better than any other team by that amount or more.
Plus 1 for you. Nice work!

I think that's a good way to look at it but you should also include points scored and points scored off of turnovers in the analysis before you give the '11 defense the nod over 92 defense. There were lots of times in 92 when our best chance to score was when the other team had the ball. I will give you that '11 was harder to score on in a time when it was generally easier for offenses to score, but the 92 defense was so disruptive and game changing i think you have to take that into consideration.
I don't think you will find a way that paints the entire picture, should we take out the non-offensive touchdowns scored by Auburn, it lowers the PPG allowed by over a point, I think Kent State got the ball on the two and scored last year, that's worth another half of a point per game now you are under a touchdown per game.
Maybe. Maybe you should also consider how few turnovers the 2011 offense had to put the defense in a bad position vs. the 92 offense. Or that the 92 defense caused 16 more turnovers than the 2011 defense. There's more to judging a defense than the points against stat.

No downvote here, but the team as a whole most definitely could be better.. Our offense is more efficient than it EVER has been in any single year. Im gona say it now.... and thats that if AjMac comes back for his 5th year, which i believ he will, then this program will do somthing that this modern era of football has nnever seen! mayb th history of Cfb has never seen what this program may do. call me crazy but i honestly believ this program will win th NC this year and may win it several years after that as long as we hava fairly smooth transition at th Qb position, especially with th talent we keep gettin there now....
This. Last years defense might be the best, top to bottom, I've ever saw....
