The improvement of the Cyclone defense has been talked about quite a bit over the past month. Because of that and a request from my site I put this together comparing the improved performance from the games 1-6 to games 7-12. I noted a lot of the interesting things (to me) but one thing I probably didn't point out is that the defense was far from terrible in the first 6 games for the most part (Missouri). They were faced with a lot of adversity due to the turnover prone offense and played very well to keep the team in games. All of that said, the improvement of the scoring defense was staggering and that is especially so when you consider the offenses in the second half of the season were much more high scoring. enCYCLONEpedia: Second Half Adjustments | Cyclone Fanatic I'd be interested in any comments and/or questions.
