    I like the yards per point scored stat. Never seen it before but I have a feeling it does explain a lot.

    I think it does a better job than looking simply at redzone efficiency for measuring ability to finish drives. When you look at just redzone you miss both the long drives that stall out at the 30 as well as the drive to the 25 yardline that finishes with a TD pass, both of which matter.

    By the way if you go back to our last winning season 2005, our yards per point scored was 12.4 for the season.

    We also had a crapload of defensive touchdowns and turnovers that year, so that makes sense.

    When you take out the defensive scores, it only increases the yards per point to 13.1 Still well below where we are at this year. You have to be able to finish drives otherwise offensive stats mean nothing.

    Finishing drives is the most important of the three keys to the game for me.

    By the way. Jeremy I just noticed as I am typing this the ad running below is for Boise State Football fans....That is just insult to inury with our blue turf history. The are selling blue turf mini computer mice. Thats just wrong
