    I tend to agree that penalties are a good sign of preparation and coaching.

    We are #10 in the country in penalties/game (4.3) after yesterday's game
    https://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/stat/penalties-per-game

    Prior to yesterday, we were #22 in penalty yards/game (44.29). We did a little better than that vs. Pitt, so I'd expect we'll remain top 25 there.

    What does that say about preparation and coaching? My gut says we are well prepared and I'm very happy with those stats.

    It is interesting to see where other schools are on the list. Referencing the first link:
    • #21 - Virginia
    • #22 - Ohio State
    • #29 - Duke
    • #31 - Va Tech
    • #39 - Clemson
    • #84 - LSU
    • #93 - NC State
    • #106 - Georgia
    • #110 - Alabama
    • #116 - Pittsburgh
    • #128 - Syracuse ;)
    One counterargument, as an example - Are our OL not yet proficient at legal holding? When we become adept, that might change things for the worse in penalties, but help us in pass pro and overall W/L.

    Interesting. We've had a bunch of garbage personal fouls called on us as well. I would have assumed we were much higher in this stat.

    Been preaching this point for a month now. Bobby dodd used to say his first tell of good coaching. Now clearly there is more to it.

    And i agree. Our OL should get called for one hold a game. Perhaps they haven’t yet exposed that mastery which would help them.

    2 penalties were substitution issues. That's a coaching goof up.

    One. The second was a legal substitution that the official messed the rule up. We had three penalties that were legit, one side block that was debatable though. And only one substitution penalty in 8 games total. There is no penalty issue with this team

    We had penalties on all three of our kick returns, need to clean those up. I also think we’ve gotten called for offensive PI every time we’ve tried to run that pick play to Davis. Not sure what Blancato thought he was doing there

    One was declined when Tech kicked off in the 3 quarter. It was some kind of weird holding call that would not have benefited Pitt.

    Nope. Not at all. New line scheme. All new checks. And to be in top 15 in penalties pretty darn good. Add in team youth
