Eh, Okie State has been bad at defense for some time now. That's no secret. Same with OU.
But the 'plays no defense' thing is a little odd when teams like Ohio State win the conference.
Ok, Okie State was ranked 49th in adjusted points allowed per play which is still way below their overall rank which is used when calculating ISU's SOS.
The teams Iowa played (except UNI) had an adjusted points allowed per play average of 43.3.
The teams Purdy faced as ISU's QB (except Drake) had an adjusted points allowed per play average of 46.
You still havent answered the question. Why do you use the team overall SOS to try and show what type of competition that Purdy faced as ISU's QB?
To make fun of anyone who thinks Purdy and Epenesa only put up elite numbers because of competition
That's what I thought, there is no valid reason to do it. It doesn't make any sense at all.
Ok so Purdy put up way better passing numbers than Stanley and can actually run the ball so how could anyone say we don't have the clear advantage at QB?
Running QB’s behind a bad OL is a recipe for injury. We will see if Purdy can beat the isu odds and be the first QB in almost a decade to start and finish a season.
Wouldn't this imply both teams are facing statistically similar teams, and thus their raw stats become reasonable to compare...?
As far as you can, anyway. They're still fundamentally different offenses. That said, for a thrown-to-fire freshman, Purdy's stats and overall gameplay were an anomaly.
We have had a poor record with QB's and finishing the season, but we shall see. At least Campbell is not afraid to pull one for poor performance or injury. Something old KF refuses to do, hell two years ago in your bowl game Beutherds was getting the hell beat out of him, the national announcers were saying he is not healthy enough to keep playing. But good ol Kirk, just kept throwing him out there, even when the game was lost.
Saw one site had ISU offensive line as one of the top 10 in the country. Now I will have to see that to believe it, but we do return all five starters. This this OL is not a least decent, we will never have one that is.
And top ten for returning letter winners?
This is at least factual. I didn't ever say Iowa had the advantage at QB.
Iowa played slightly better defenses.
CyTwins was saying Purdy put up much better numbers while ISU played a more difficult schedule which is an odd way of looking at this.
So you agree ISU has the advantage at QB?
You know who graded out higher than Stone last year on PFF?
Do you think Purdy is a top 2 round talent?
Does anyone in the NFL think this? Maybe Remo who works for the Patriots will pick Purdy as a top 2 round talent.
I don’t think you quite grasp the concept of trolling
Well it must be almost time for camps to start. Let us all begin the great battle of "our team cares less than your team". Albeit the stupidest argument of all time, it remains a staple of discord within both sides of said rivalry.
Pot meet kettle.
