I’m early, and my opinion may change after today’s slate of games. But here we go. 

 The highlight of this season for USF has been our defense when they show up (see GT, SC State, UConn, BYU, ECU, and temple). The defensive stats in those 6 games are as follows:

  1. 19 points per game - 18th in the nation
  2. 335 yards per game - 29th in the nation
  3. 196 Pass yards per game - 35th in the nation
  4. 139 Rush Yards per Game - 45th in the nation
  5. 3 turnovers per game - 1st in the nation
  6. 10 Tackles for Loss per game – 1st in the nation
  7. 3 sacks per game – 23rd in the nation

At times, the defense does give up big plays and is not very consistent, but the stats above don’t lie. When they show up, they are darn good compared to the defenses USF has been putting out for the last couple of years. The unfortunate thing is that we lose a lot of the defense to graduation (Reaves, Livingstone, Macon, Studstill). So for everyone saying that we need to raid the portal in the off-season for offensive players, keep in mind our defense will also be lacking depth. 

I stand beside my statement that Mickey Mouse Community College is 💩 (see Tulane). It is still possible to make a bowl game if 2 things happen. 

  1. Offensive line shows up and we rush for 200 yards or more (Team is 18-1 under strong when it rushes for 200 or more)
  2. Defense shows up and has a stat line along the stats listed above in the 6 games they have shown up

 If both of those 2 things happen, I can see us squeaking out a close one at home verse Memphis and taking it to a defeated and discouraged UCF. I have already written off Cincy as a loss since they look like the most complete team in the conference.

If we stay committed to the run...Mathis being sick really put us back (we went away from the two te set which may have been the most successful formation ran all year) and Evans can play I like our chances...I'm not concerned with our d...they have been pretty good all year

We will lose the last three games. How do I know? Because I am not drinking alcohol. 

USF didn’t lose this week, so go bulls!    Memphis’ defense allowed around the same amount of points to SMU as we did, meaning their defense is on par with ours. However, Memphis’ offense put u

While I hate UCF with a passion, I don't think they are overrated right now. In fact, I think they are currently underrated. Their offense is still extremely deadly when it clicks, especially Dillon G

I’m not home, so I don’t have my spreadsheet but they would definitely change. But if we exclude scs from our stats, and excluded the other fbs teams layup games the standings would be about the same

our defense looks good against crappy offenses. excluding sc state, those other 5 are ranked

#118

#117

#96

#83

#73

in scoring. maybe just maybe it was because we played crappy offenses.

Memphis and UCF are both top 10 offenses.
