    supposedly, the Pac 10 is known for high-powered offenses- explain this:

    Total points scored:

    SEC
    Kentucky..............299
    LSU.....................264
    Florida.................238
    Arkansas..............220
    Alabama...............211
    Tennessee............206
    South Carolina.......195
    Georgia................197
    Auburn.................179
    Miss. St...............160
    Ole Miss...............154
    Vanderbilt............136

    PAC 10

    Oregon.................271
    Arizona St............264
    California..............225
    USC....................204
    Oregon St............196
    Arizona...............183
    UCLA..................168
    Washington St.....172
    Washington.........155
    Stanford.............148


    I pulled these numbers in response to a poster on the USC forum saying Kentucky was AS CLOSE to a Pac 10 offense as there was in the SEC........wrong- they're better than any in the PAC.

    I know there are some defensive/special team points in there but it all balances out......at least, that's my story and I'm stickin to it.

    Nah, I don't think so. Here are defensive scoring numbers for the entire season up to this point.

    PAC 10 - 64 total games, 1639 total points given up - 25.6/game

    SEC - 80 total games, 1734 total points given up - 21.7/game

    Not only does the SEC defenses on a whole play better defense. Now, thanks to tiga, we have shown that we are better offensively as well.

    Stats can be misleading. Take a look at where the first five teams LSU played and where they rank offensively and maybe you will see that our D maybe is'nt quite as good as a lot of people thought.

    This begs the question:
    Where is our quasi-resident USC poster, USCVball.

    Tiga, thought you'de know better than any of us. I guess she may be doing full-time damage control at the USC boards after the Stanford loss.

    Later,

    Nah, she's actually made congratulatory posts for LSU and has been very honest about the USC situation in the posts she's made that I've read. Hadn't seen her on the USC forum, though I haven't been on it as much lately.

    After there was a thread calling her out after the Stanford loss, I thought she may have returned the favor after our loss but she's taken the high road, I guess. :)

    Or maybe the stats are misleading because we dominated those teams on defense and that is why they are that low?

    Agreed, always felt she was a fair poster and valued her input on USC. Figured this thread might draw her out.

    Hope she comes back soon...

    After 7 games I doubt you can say one game would effect a teams ranking that much. Those teams offenses are ranked that low because they are bad offenses.
