I thought this put the year into focus and cleared some things up for me.

If you look at year 1 through year 3 our offense has done this:

2021 - 511 points (39.3 avg) and 475 yards per game

2022 - 599 points (46.1 avg) and 525 yards per game

2023 - 330 point (30.0 avg) and 438 yards per game with 2 games remaining

Suppose UT scores their season average over the last 2 games they would end up at 390 points. That's over TWO HUNDRED fewer points scored vs last year and over 120 fewer than year 1. And if you add the 16 points per game difference to this year's games, we would have beaten Florida and Bama again. If you didn't understand the difference between Milton and Hooker before, boy I hope you do now.

Meanwhile on the defensive side...

We have given up

2021 - 378 points (29.1 avg) and 404 yards per game

2022 - 296 points (22.8 avg) and 399 yards per game

2023 - 240 points (21.8 avg) and 352 yards per game with 2 games remaining

Again if we give up our season average over the last 2 games we will end the year at 284 points.

So our defense looks like it will improve every year so far.

Regardless of what you think of our defensive staff, it's pretty dang clear to me who's fault this disaster of a year is. It's the guy calling the offense and the guy playing QB.
