T A&M was in the same boat last year. Horrible D but they could put up 50 pts per game and win by keeping the other O off the field. The D needs to step up, yes but so does the O, big time. 17-20 pts per game ain't gonna win many in today's game. Sometimes your best D is a good O.
Talking about that team that went 8-4 in the regular season and struggled against 2 of the better defenses in the country.
Also somebody define "gimmick offense" for me? Because if it is what I think is, then about 90% of FBS runs a gimmick offense.
