Default My feelings on Long

The offense was inflated by the defense this year.

we had a +14 margin versus non-ranked teams. (More scoring opportunities, weaker teams

A +1 vs ranked teams

Yes record points but with ALOT of help. The defense scored several times and set up Several more

I'm hearing this 37.1 number alot, but it feels like if you took the defense out of it it would be 30 or under.

Kudos to Kelly for seeing things the way they are and not falling in love with 37.1 points per game, because that success will get credited to Long but its missing the whole story.

Plus there were some really weak teams on the schedule that padded the stats.

ND had 4 defensive TDS and many more that were set up. If you take those out the scoring average was 34.75
