Here's how the rest of the conference looks
Add this to the fact that we've played #26 Michigan and #11 Oregon (total offense) and this is even MORE impressive.
Interesting numbers, but they are not showing efficiency.
Yards are all well and good but I look at some things with more attention. Red zone efficiency, meaning tds. Turnover differential, etc. That will keep you in or win more games than not.
CU Efficiency Rankings
Offensive: 78.9 - 11th overall (2nd in Pac 12)
Defensive: 85.5 - 9th overall (1st in Pac 12)
Special Teams: 32.9 - 112th overall (12th in Pac 12)
Overall: 84.4 - 14th overall (3rd in Pac 12)
more posts like this might get you taken off ignore. Also a link to your source.
Which kind of leads to the idea that if Special Teams were at an average or slightly above average level, CU could very well be sitting at 4-0 and have a top 5-10 overall team efficiency. ****ing punt team.
Meshes with what we have seen. Offense is very efficient while utilizing the big plays. Defense has given up yardage at times, but rarely the big play, and they force turnovers.
Special teams have been mostly pretty bad.
So wait, how did you see my post?!?!
Also - edited with source, but I didn't do it for you, Darth!
We're gonna ****ing win!
True, perhaps I mis-used the word efficiency... maybe I was going more for "completeness", in the sense of having the best combination of a good offense and defense.
Really want to see what those numbers look like 2 weeks from now.
Special teams are definitely a worry but just be solid with it and I'd be happy. Other points, no argument here.
None of these statistical rankings has any meaning right now. Check how much they bounce around from week to week. Let me know where we are after October is done. Even then I think you have to correct for the teams you've played.
Our stats will get worse as we play P5 teams the rest of the year but we are a legit, solid P5 team. Can't believe it but am loving it!
