- Some surprising offensive numbers.
- Some encouraging defensive stats?
- A player leaving the team that we somehow missed a few weeks back?
- A good collection of links.
Sometimes I have links I want to share and odds and ends that individually don't justify a new story, but collectively, I'm sure you'll find something you enjoy. Clemson preview, Q&A, and Gambling column all to come.

You probably remember a few weeks back when MattDNole posted his response to Andrew Carter, regarding a comparison between the emaciated Jeff Bowden offense and Fisher's new offense. I now have an updated graph, showing Jeff Bowden's final 21 conference games and Jimbo's first 21 conference games:

Brian Fremeau providing the best statistical analysis on the net.
So the offense moves up from 4th to 3rd. Georgia Tech overtakes Notre Dame by hanging 56 and 600 yards on Vandy in Nashville (which hey, it's Vandy, but nobody else had come close). Note that Clemson is squarely in the middle of the offenses we have faced. Not that it will matter much.
This is interesting, however, as The defense actually moves up, from 104th to 98th! How? Probably because their performance against UNC and BC isn't quite as bad considering both offenses continue to improve, and GTech and Miami's offenses continue to dominate. Still, 98th is ridiculous and we're a full standard deviation away from Duke! If you're curious who the #99-120 defenses are...

Clemson crushed FSU in recruiting in 2006 and 2007. FSU is paying for that now.
Aaron Gresham's career is over.
I guess this was already out there, but he will be medically disqualified to avoid possible permanent damage to his mobility, which could occur if he had another knee injury. I updated the Scholarship Chart.
