most prolific offense in history? Right now the record looks like this for a single year:

1. 1904 Minnestota 725 points
2. 2013 FSU 723 points
3. 2018 Clemson 664 points
4. 2005 Texas 652 points
5. 1902 Michigan 644 points
6. 1995 Nebraska 638 points

Our #3 Ranking represents 664 points across 15 games, for a 44.3 avg. To get to 726 points across 15 games, we'd need a 48.4 avg. For further perspective, FSU's 723 was over 13 games, for a 55.6 avg. So, entirely possible, with less output per game than what FSU accomplished just 5 years ago.

Could Dabo do it? I have to think absolutely, if he wanted to. Will he do it? Given his penchant for playing reserves, hiding the playbook, and being an all round classy guy, I kind of doubt it. Put it is interesting to think about, and amazing at just how close we are. What a time to be a tiger.


Interesting. It wouldn't hurt my feelings

The Tigers hit their season average against Bama...and could have added another TD. A&M and those tough ACC defenses ('Cuse, BC, Duke) held the Tigers back. Oh...and those Irish. ;)


Lol yes, Louisville scored as much against us as Bama did

and GT and Syr scored more. Meanwhile, BC, Syr, NCSt, Duke, and Georgia Southern "held us" to less points than Bama gave up. That's hilarious.

Don’t think we make it this year. We played a couple of historically bad ACC teams in FSU and Louisville and the Wake D wasn’t even trying I believe they had people playing out of position due to injury. So coaching changes at Ga Tech and Ville probably mean better Ds along with Wake and fewer scores against FSU because their offense should keep the ball more. Then again Trevor and Ross weren’t even full time until the middle of the season. Trevor may not play any more than he did though due to scores at the half. Ross may not play any more due to the two freshman getting minutes. I would expect more points against TAMU, BC and UofSC though (yes more than 63 on their own turf). We may run into teams slow playing us trying to shorten the games to keep it respectable.

1. That 2013 FSU team is one of the most dominant teams of any era. They are worthy of the 95 Nebraska, 2001 Miami, and 2018 Clemson team discussion.

Dabo would not humiliate (intentionally) anyone save the coot. Then again, I don't think he likes Louisville. Then again, he plays everyone, so it is up to the other team to stop our equipment managers, ticket sellers, and Harden Hall All-Stars.

I agree that Dabo won’t intentionally run up the score. But......our talent pool appears to be getting deeper. When the 3rd & 4th stringers are 4 star guys, it could easily get ugly fast. Dabo won’t run up the score, but he ain’t gonna tell the backups to lay off either.

On another subject....anybody that says that the coots are our toughest game, is out of their ever loving mind.


Breaking the points record really hinges on 1 crucial variable

Dabo plays more players than anyone else, and our defense will have fewer 3 and outs.

Time of possession will be less.
