just a question. you stated "helped improve team turnover margin" What was the delta in actual offensive turnovers from 2010 to 2011? just curious how much was actually offense, and how much was defense

If there was just one thing, one area, that we knew would improve there would not be an overwhelming reason for optimism. However we have:
1) the second year of the the Harsin system. I'm not sure that the Harsin year 1 to yr 2 at Boise is even apples to apples. Harsin took over as OC from Peterson so how much of a new system was that really? He should get a real bounce from '11 to '12
2) S&C We know where we were and where we are now, OL will be much, much better for it.
3) Searels Just a better coach than we had before and the OL development will be a real plus
4) QB being a true freshman and now with some experience with Harsin under his belt will make dramatic improvements.
It's just that we have so many areas where we will have a tendancy to be better that it's hard not to see this offense go from spotty at best to dang near prolific in 2012.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
IIRC, during this period the NCAA monkeyed with the clock stoppage rules during this time. As I remember it, 2006 was the year a significant # of plays per game were cut on average b/c of this fiddling. Didn't they revert back in 2007? If so, doesn't that undercut the thesis of this article?
I could be wrong with the year, it might be 2008 when it went back to normal.
