Could you find out how many points Gundy's defenses average giving up per game the last 5 years or so? Thanks.
I will save Wes the trouble if you have the time. Give me a few mins.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Try Googling it. Pretty sure Wes has a few other things on his plate right now.
I have a comment on Gundy defenses.
I think it's hard to recruit to a school like OSU. His recruiting classes weren't that great. With a good scheme on offense, you can get away with that.
But on defense, it's much harder to take lesser athletes and scheme them up to be a great defense. You need some hoss DL, you need great athletes at LB and in the secondary.
I think that's a lot of the reason his defenses haven't been very good, regardless of the DC.
Much appreciated. +1 for ya!

I think we better hope that this is the case. Beamer at VT takes low ranked recruiting classes and has TOUGH defenses year after year. I just have a hard time believing that you can win in the SEC by offense alone. We proved that in several games this year.

Sorry about the format..copied it over from excel. Those number from left to right correspond with the years left to right and they are the points scored by each opposing team on the schedule.

Not as low as I'd hoped. Thanks again for taking the time and effort on the research. Folks like you make this the site the best!
Some other Gundy Factoids before this season.
34-12 At Home
21-16 on the Road
4-2 at Neutral Sites
33-24 vs the Big 12
3-8 vs TOP 10
11-15 vs Top 25
8-3 vs NON CON BCS OPPS
10-6 off of a bye
17-10 off of a loss
Are you a rolodex or what! LOL! Not much of a record against the top 25!
Nah. I just keep a collection of preseason annuals. I am no hero, but It is easier than buying the big ESPN college football encyclopedia every year.
I'll hang up and listen.
