    I'll take points per game and passing yards per game. I think the rest will be somewhat similar to last year.

    Improve - Pending the offense stays healthy, it should be more productive
    Push - That's a lot of yards, and we all better hope like hell Arnaud improves passing
    Improve - See end of last answer.
    Worse - Worse. We played some real jokes last year. Oklahoma and Texas are going to throw up big numbers, and I wouldn't be surprised if Missouri and Texas Tech also do.
    Worse - The Nebraska game was a fluke and helped a lot.
    Improve - Arnaud gets better...or at least we hope.
    Worse - Again, the Nebraska game was a fluke and helped a bunch, not to mention we play better teams that won't shoot themselves in the foot.
    Worse - We need a slight miracle to get to 7 wins. Everything has to fall our way. Not impossible, but probably unlikely.

    Question, are those our numbers for big 12 games or overall.

    Our 21.8 Def Scoring Avg included giving up 35 pts to Iowa, 41 to KU, 35 to A&M, 34 to Mizzou and 34 to Okie State. In our other 7 games we gave up less than 17 points each.

    I don't see Iowa or KU scoring that many against us next year - Iowa because our offense won't give them as many short fields, and KU because they are losing too much from last year. Mizzou may put up that many again. I also see Tech's offense falling off from what Leach was able to do. A&M had a potent offense last year, and we don't play them this year.

    Bottom line is even if we give up 35 points to both OU and UT, there are some other teams who should score less which will keep our average from changing too much.
