744 yards of Offense against Gamecocks


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 9:30 AM
 

It is amazing that the talk after this game has been predominantly about how bad we played on defense. Sure, they played bad. But man, oh man, it is hard to ignore the 744 yards of offense we put up. That is the second most EVER. The only time we eclipsed that amount was in 1981 when we scored 82 on Wake Forest.

The offense is flat humming with Trevor at the helm. No amount of injuries to the Gamecock defense were going to make a significant difference in this game. We had multiple touchdown drives of over 90+ yards.

744 YARDS OF OFFENSE! 56 Points!!! Good luck stopping this offense the next two years as TL16 gets more experience!


Without that PF against Tee we would have beaten

the record of 756. Would we be talking about the defense then?

What do you mean PF against Tee?


Do you mean we would have broken the record if not for the OPI against Amari?


Yes, my bad

Don't know why I get those two confused, and just a typo on the PF. Double brain fart!

Yeah, I agree. A lot of folks are not focusing on the positive. Our D had a bad game... and we won by 3 TDs. We are a much more complete team, especially compared to a year ago.

This time around we had an offense win a game. When was the last time that happened? Louisville 2016? Still remember the D winning that at the end. NC State in 2015? That was the last real "shootout".

The defense WON the 'Cuse game behind the Brice's swagger. It is very nice to see the offense carry the defense when they are having an off night.


I think the angle a lot of people are trying to play here

(and by a lot of people i mostly mean coot fans and a handful of disgruntled Tigers) is:

"Oh well sure you had 750 yards but SC had approximately 47 injured defensive players. Your defense has no excuse for getting torched by Jake Bentley."

we gave up several, to many, big plays for sure. but we also shut them out in the 3rd quarter, lead 49-21 when dabo called the dogs off and let them sneak closer. then we took the ball with 3 minutes and put the nail in the coffin. always good comes out of every game. the d will have the coaches full attention this week.
