SB Nation's OBNUG examines the recent success of the Louisiana Tech offense:
You may have read that the Louisiana Tech offense is firing on all cylinders and a force to be reckoned with. That's the word on the street, and when has the word on the street ever been wrong? I mean besides that an IKEA is coming to Meridian.
Well maybe the word on the street needs to look at the numbers again.
LaTech total offense vs. Utah State: 149 yards passing, 278 yards rushing
LaTech total offense vs. Idaho: 422 yards passing, 261 yards rushing
And now know this: Utah State just gave up 216 yards rushing to Hawaii. Idaho is the nation's 65th-ranked defense and No. 82 against the run. Let's keep this in perspective, people.
At the most, this Louisiana Tech offense is unproven. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it's better than what they were four games into the season, which was a proven offense at being terrible. Unproven equals unpredictable, and unpredictable can be trouble.
