    Points!!!!

    Yes there were a ton of cupcake games this week, but did anyone see the ridiculous amount of points this lackluster conference scored this week?

    Baylor - 70
    TTU - 61
    OKST -56
    KSU - 48
    TCU - 38
    KU yes, KU - 31
    UT (currently) - 21
    OU - 16
    WVU - 7

    What would you do for a 45+ point game. Interested to hear your replies CFers!!

    I don't worry about points. As long as we have more than the other team at the end of the game I don't care if it is 2 or 77.

    We can hang with WVU. We can score at least seven.

    Re: Points!!!!

    As much as Id like to see 45-point game more than once every four years, it isnt a requirement to provide a boost. But at least score more than 20 on a frequent basis.

    I would take 28 ppg average in a microsecond.

    Assuming points-allowed remained the same, wed have the following additional wins during the Rhoads era alone:

    • Texas Tech 2012 (28-24)
    • KSU 2012 (28-27)
    • Oklahoma 2011 (28-26)
    • Rutgers 2011 (28-27)
    • KSU 2010 (28-27)
    • Missouri 2010 (28-14)
    • KSU 2009 (28-24)

    (UNI 2013 would go to OT)

    That's close to 2 more wins per season.

    I realize it doesnt work precisely that way (there are factors that could come into play if games were higher-scoring overall e.g., I have a feeling that 2011 OU game would've turned into a 48-28 game if that's what it took). Mainly, it's evidence it isn't essential to put up massive scoring numbers to be just a bit more successful.
