Thank for this. Very good comparative data. This does show how great 2016 has been.
I do agree with JD that the comparison by % difference would be even more exact, at least in certain categories.
This data still leaves me with my question, though, as to why 2011 was statistically so far ahead of everyone else in their year (even that really good LSU defense), while 2016 is relatively not that far ahead of several teams this year. It could be that 2016 is actually way ahead of everyone this year when adjusted to strength of the offenses we've played. Another possibility is that there are more extremely good defenses this year, but I don't really see that from what I've watched.
