    5.1 (Average Yards per Rush)

    206.27 (Average Yards per Game Rushing)

    218.78 (Average Yards per Game Passing)

    19 (Passing TD's)

    10 (Total Interceptions Thrown)

    25 (Total Interceptions Taken Away)

    2.48 (Defense Yards per Rush Allowed)

    252.67 (Total Defense)

    8.7 (Defensive Points Allowed per Game)

    6 (Touchdowns scored by Defense/Special Teams)


    In case you haven't guessed, I'm pretty optimistic about this year's team.
    Haha darn, you got me with the total defensive interceptions. I was doin calculations to see if 19 passing TD's and 25 rushing TD's would be close to 30 pts a game and if you add in extra points and an average of 1.5 field goals a game, its almost dead on!

    I could definitely see these stats being very very close to the truth. Our defense is going to be incredible this year. From watching them in the spring and in the bowl game, I've seen some amazing stuff from this group. Everyone needs to make sure and enjoy this season because it's gonna be something special!

    Re: Offseason Trivia: 12 Stats for 2011 (Guess what stat)

    I know it's sort of bad form to drudge up 1 1/2 year-old threads but I came across this one in a search and thought it was interesting. This is a list of team stats that I predicted in June of 2011 that the 2011 Alabama team would amass during the regular season. I was a bit off but the results are interesting, comparing them to the entire 2011 season's results.

    In 2011, the Alabama Crimson Tide will amass the following (random, sort of) stats:

    12 (Regular Season Wins) --- Off by 1, only 11 in the regular season but 12 total!

    30.2 (Average Points per Game) --- We actually averaged 34.8 points per game.

    5.1 (Average Yards per Rush) --- We averaged 5.49 yards per rush - even better than I predicted but not too far off.

    206.27 (Average Yards per Game Rushing) --- We averaged 214.46 yards rushing - pretty close.

    218.78 (Average Yards per Game Passing) --- We averaged 215.2 yards passing - very close.

    19 (Passing TD's) --- We only had 16 Passing TDs.

    10 (Total Interceptions Thrown) --- We only threw 8 INTs on the year.

    25 (Total Interceptions Taken Away) --- I could be wrong but I think I meant to put "Total Turnovers Taken Away", of which we ended up with only 20.

    2.48 (Defense Yards per Rush Allowed) --- We gave up 2.43 yards per rush on the year - extremely close.

    252.67 (Total Defense) --- We blew this away, only giving up 183.6 yards per game.

    8.7 (Defensive Points Allowed per Game) --- We only gave up 8.2 points per game - very close.

    6 (Touchdowns scored by Defense/Special Teams) --- Only 4 here - oh, well.


    In case you haven't guessed, I'm pretty optimistic about this year's team.

    This was a pretty good thread. I'm thinking that maybe I'll start a somewhat similar thread for the 2013 season - for some off-season fun/pondering - where everyone can make their own predictions for a specified set of stats and we'll see who ends up being the closest.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.
