about that defense

Quote:14. Rice: The Owls allowed a staggering 70 percent completion rate last season.

Hope we can do something about that this season. 70 percent seems a bit ridiculous.

Also links to position by position rankings. Good news: Owls rank #2....in punting. Happy for Fox, but that's not where we want our main team strength to be. #nomoreclapping

RE: about that defense
Two years ago we were last in the country in pass defense. And the difference between us and second-to-last was greater than the difference between any two other positions in the ranking.

We aren't in the top half of the conference in any of the categories.

Predcition-- we'll finish 2018 in the Top 3 in conference in kickoff and punt returns. I have that much faith in Lembro (and Walters).

That put us 3rd last in the country. Second was Charlotte. Dead last was the protege @ Kansas with an unprecedented 71%

I think we are seeing an unprecedented usage of the word unprecedented.

Earlier in the sentence, a precedented unitalicized use of "unprecedented".
