    Why We Need an Offense

    Defense in the Big 12? We'll pass

    by Jeffrey Martin, Special to FOXSports.com


    FOX Sports on MSN - COLLEGE FOOTBALL - Defense in the Big 12? We'll pass


    The numbers are frightening:

    Five teams in the top 10 nationally in total offense, six in the top 20.

    Eight in the top 30 in passing efficiency.

    Six in the top 13 in scoring.

    This is how it is in the Big 12, where defenses are suddenly most offensive.

    You feel for someone like Iowa State coach Gene Chizik, an old-school guy who made his mark in college football as a defensive coordinator at Texas, an accomplished coach who bided his time before being "rewarded" with his current gig.
    Since settling into Ames, he's mostly been on the wrong end of blowouts — and he's not sure the end is near.

    With the great qbs and high scoring offenses, we should be prepared to score 30 or more each game. So, our gameplan needs to be tuned for max production.

    We were averaging 32 PPG before AA got hurt at Baylor.


    But the last 2 weeks were completely unacceptable.

    We really need to open the playbook and air it out. Play every offensive series like the last minute drive against UNLV to tie the game. I hope Arnaud can be close to 100% this week.

    32 PPG sounds great but it isn't so good when you throw out MAC, MWC, and lesser opponents:

    Actual offensive points scored against BCS opponents:

    Iowa 3 (gives up average of 12 ppg)
    Kansas 33 (gives up average of 21 ppg)
    Baylor 10 (gives up average of 27 ppg)
    Nebraska 7 (gives up average of 25 ppg)

    ISU Average = 13 ppg. Pathetic is the only word to describe it.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.
