Big Sky Football stats after week 3


Well-known member
Found these stats on Sports Illistrated this morning. I don't think that they really follow 1-AA very well, and I see that they say Montana averages 40 points/game when we actually average 30 so they have questionable math as well. What the heck! They do have a link on their home page to the swimsuit models!

Take these stats for what they are worth. Right now I'd say nothing more than ammo for 2 weeks of Egriz chat until our next game!

Can anyone verify these defensive stats? I like our defense but it seems to me we have given up more that 560 yards in 3 games. I suspect SI didn't get all their stats updated correctly after Saturday.

Here is the link to SI for the rest of the stats!

The offensive numbers look about right. The Big Skys worst so far, but I believe the best by seasons end. Too many weapons to hold us down. The boys will get it together over the next three games.

The defensive numbers are probably for just two game and they are dividing by three. They can't be right because we have been outgained in all three games. That means we must be giving up an average of around 280-285 yards per game.

I'll be happy if we can keep the defensive numbers where they are for average. We need to add 200 yards per game to the offensive numbers.
Those numbers aren't reliable since everyone's played such different schedules so far. There haven't been any conference games. Still, our offense is really struggling, and it shows.
