Etienne Outrushed Fla State in 2018

I heard a couple of the media folks on Sirius/XM talking about Fla State’s offensive problems in 2018. The Noles were ranked 126 out of 129 FBS teams in rushing. Not good!
But looking at the statistics more closely was even more eye-opening. For example: Clemson’s leading rusher, Travis Etienne, outrushed the entire Fla State offense by himself in 2018. He actually had 50% more yards than the entire Fla State offense. The Fla State team rushing stats do include QB sacks, but that isn’t enough to offset such a big discrepancy:

2018 Rushing:

Etienne: 1658 yards on 204 attempts

Fla State offense: 1093 yards on 392 attempts
https://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs/current/team/23/p3



Of course, Etienne played in 15 games while Fla State played in 12. So, I compared Etienne’s stats in Clemson’s 12 regular season games. Unless my math is off, Etienne had 361 yards on 40 attempts collectively in Clemson’s three games after the regular season (ACC title game and two playoff games). That means that Etienne had 1287 on 164 attempts. So, comparing Etienne’s numbers only in the 12 game regular season to Florida State’s 12 regular season games, Etienne still easily eclipsed the entire Fla State offense in rushing


12 Regular Season games only:

Etienne: 1287 yards on 164 attempts
Fla State offense: 1093 yards on 392 attempts


Not hard, considering FSU was the 4th worst rushing team

in the country. Etienne out-rushed 23 teams in total including them, Stanford, Tennessee and Michigan State.

His 24 rushing TDs were more than a whopping 69 teams, including BC, Florida, WVU, VT and USCjr (lol).

That really is all the more impressive when you consider he often he sat in the fourth qurter of Clemson blowouts.

Thanks!

FSU's OL has been abysmal for years

That, more than anything, is the root cause of their struggles. Not sure how they got into such a bind at OL but that has to be a bigger priority for them than even QB recruiting, I think.

FSPU comes to Death Valley this year. Should be good for 8-10 illegal procedures.
