    Where is Memphis? Where is LSU? Because it killed us against them. OM is at 73.5 on 38 trips. Our offense has no big play ability so we have to be good in the red zone But at the end of the day my point is saying ď20 of 23Ē is just miselading

    No itís not. Our over percentage is good. Our td percent is abt the same as everyone else.

    Not the best.
    Definitely not the worst.
    Right in the thick of everyone else.

    If you wanna argue we need more red zone attempts, then argue away.

    If we get to 40 attempts and have 20 to 22 tds, thatís not good, but 60% isnít bad.

    Our opponents are giving up 60.9% tds in redzone.

    Vandy is giving up 60% but a lot of trips to redzone.
    Kentucky 68.4%
    Arkansas 70%
    Auburn 59.9%
    Ole miss 80.7%

    I donít disagree with anything you said, but Iíve also never put a ton of stock into red zone efficiency because it essentially rewards teams for doing anything other than completely screwing up.

    Hereís the angle Iím looking atÖ

    Over the last three games, we have had 19 drives in which we crossed midfield.

    6 have resulted in TDs
    5 have resulted in FGs
    1 punt
    7 have been turnovers or missed FGs

    Put another way, these are 19 drives that averaged 56 yards, and we ended up at our opponents 16 yard line on average. How many points did we get out of them? 3 per drive

    We simply are not cashing in when we move the ball. Weíre getting the equivalent of a FG after moving the ball 56 yards which is a victory for the defense. Not us

    This is the real reason for OM success. You put Corral on MSU and we are 5-1.
