The Trifecta

You know how Nuss and I hate raw stats, because they are misleading? Well, yds/game are, and I mislead myself in that last post. Why? Because if team A gives up 100 yards on 100 attempts in 3 games, they are a better rush defense than team B who gives up 100 yards on 10 attempts in three games. Check out the rankings on yards per carry (the number on the right of the chart), which is really more indicative of rush defense.

117 New Mexico State


5.83


118 Idaho


5.85
119 Washington
5.88
120 Washington State 7.15

Woo hoo! We have us, the Dawgs, and a team coached by our former defensive coordinator as the three worst rush defenses in the nation. I'm speechless.
