The defense was also well above average but not great across the board, except they were very good in the red zone (3.73 points per, good for 5th nationally, but average on 3rd downs) and racked up more than 90 points from turnovers.
Cincinnati will play some games. They'll win some. They'll lose others.
What impact will Tommy Tubberville have, on offense specifically? At Tech in 2012, they threw the ball 60% of the time, completed 70% of those, and averaged 11 yards per completion. At Cincinnati, they ran 57% of the time, completed 57% of their pass attempts and averaged almost 15 yards per completion. That may look like a sea change is coming, but Tubberville and his staff are not complete morons. As they did in Tech, they will utilize the talent on the roster - a host of waterbug receivers and two senior quarterbacks.
