All of these factors come together to tell a story of an offense as a whole. How well they can do their job and score points. An offense that can’t score points is not good, as we’ve all seen. The leaders in overall S&P+ for offense are Oklahoma, Central Florida, Ohio State, and Oklahoma State (Bedlam is going to be SO good). All of the factors come together with different weights, to figure out how many points a team is going to score in a game.
The Texas A&M Aggies, home of Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans, have a score of 26.9 predicted points per game. I remember hearing every defensive coach ever pleading with the offense to give them 28 points, and the defense can win. The current offense can’t do that. It’s ranked 74th in the nation. Again, just below average.
Teams such as Michigan, UAB, Maryland and Virginia Tech are all better than Texas A&M on offense. The Aggies just beat out Western Kentucky, South Carolina, and Florida International on offense. That is simply not acceptable from a team led by two “offensive gurus,” no matter what situation is happening at quarterback. Something has to change.
Coach Spavital is leading the seventh ranked offense in the nation, scoring a predicted 38.3 points per game.
