By the Numbers: Week 9

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

You know what I like even more than Florida orange-juice? Florida defeat, anybody from Florida. You're all off my Christmas list. Well, except for my relatives in Sarasota. And our players. And those recruits headed this way. You guys I love. Everybody else can eat it.

What'd you do this weekend? Me, I watched some pretty darn good football players come back from a bad loss in decisive fashion. 34-3 ain't too shabby.

#23 UCF post-game

It was nothing like last week, but there were still a few upsets to scramble the ranks and make the computers work extra hard this morning.

First time losers this week were #5 Missouri who dropped to #21 South Carolina in a 2 OT finale that ended when Missouri's kicker clanged one off the uprights. Earlier in the day, #15 Oklahoma played fast and loose with Texas Tech's emotions, handing them a 8 point loss after TT had to settle for field goals a number of times throughout the game.

In My Humble Opinion

  • Hey, Marcus Smith is the 4th best in the nation on sacks, y'all!
  • Have you heard of this Terry Bridgewater kid? Must be pretty good, he's sitting 3rd in the nation on # of touchdowns.
  • Somebody said we have a good kicker. John Wallace is hitting 97.3% of his shots, sitting 12th in the nation on kicking. You know what else he's sitting 12th in the nation on? Overall point scoring with 72. I think he's got this kicking thing down.
  • There's been comments this week about slower pace of play. Sure enough, Louisville runs fewer plays per minute than any of the top 10 teams. We've also held the ball longer than any of the top 10 teams.
  • The fact that our run-pass ratio keeps moving closer to the needle to the Teddy side of the dial is nice. The only top 10 team close is Clemson and they're getting a full yard less per attempt.
  • As hard as it is to accept the notion that ranking, BCS bid, bowl selection, all of that is out of our hands - that's what I'm working on. I'll confess to having gotten a little wound up during the USF game. You know, the one where we beat them by 31. At the same time, I've believed all along that any cracks we see against lesser opponents are the spots for greater opponents to drive their wedge. As with most things, finding the middle path is the key to happiness. However you choose to celebrate your fandom, I appreciate all I've learned from everyone on this board this year.
  • So, seems like the rotation for the Running Back slot is starting to solidify. How about that Dominique Brown kid? He's got some wheels on him. He passed up Senorise Perry this week in yardage, but Senorise still has him by a touchdown.
  • You know what's awesome? I'll tell you. I went back and was reading some of the new posts on the post-game thread and there was discussion (again) about the run vs pass ratio. Comments like "if we throw more and they start to fade back on D then that just opens the run" and "The run we have doesn't pay off at first, but it wears down the D which opens up both the run AND the pass later in the game." Here's where we come to the awesome part… we have a team that can DO this. We have a very well rounded team, led by a Heisman contender that has the ability to move back and forth between offensive styles. All the while, we're facing teams that are hanging their hats on one player or one style. This bodes very well for the future. Yeah, I'm having a lot of fun this season.

Music for your Bye Week

Up for Grabs

The only top 10 team that has gotten more penalties than UofL this year is Oregon.
