Oklahoma's Run Defense in the Stoops Era

Well after 10 games OU's run defense is allowing 147 yards per game and 4.1 yards per carry. Ummm, not good
we all say, this compelled me to look at the records and compare the numbers with Sooners Defense of the past 11 years since Coach Stoops arrived. Here is what I found.....

 

ypg= yards allowed per game   ypc= yards allowed per rushing attempt

1999     128.1ypg     3.4ypc     7 wins

2000    101.9ypg      3.4ypc    13 wins NT

2001      85.1ypg      2.3ypc     11 wins

2002    107.9ypg     3.0ypc     12 wins

2003    109.7ypg     3.4ypc     12 wins

2004      86.4ypg      2.8ypc     12 wins

2005     91.2ypg      2.8ypc        8 wins

2006     98.2ypg      3.3ypc      11 wins

2007     91.9ypg      2.8ypc      11 wins

2008   106.1ypg      3.2ypc      12 wins

2009     88.6ypg      2.7ypc        8 wins

Avg for the first 11 years under Stoops is 99.5 yards per game and 3 yards per carry.

This year is 146.9 yards per game and 4.1 yards per carry, that 's a whopping 48 yards and 1.1 yards per carry more than we are accustomed to under Stoops and Venables. This, in my opinion, has been the biggest issue of the season and should be the NUMBER ONE PRIORITY in the spring and fall practices to correct the problem and make adjustments. Hopefully this is just blip in the radar and will not become a trend for the future.

 

Of Couse Stats never tell the whole story. Too many big gashing run plays this year!
