Surprisingly good rushing game analysis by ESPN's new FSU beat writer

Surprisingly good analysis, given it is from ESPN. To summarize, it goes in depth on analyzing FSU rushing game. Factoring out sacks from all ACC schools, FSU's rushing per carry goes to 4.41 yards, just shy of the league average for teams that aren't Georgia Tech (4.5). And while FSU had only 165 carries that went 3 or more yards compared to league avg 228 (a reflection of the OL), the percentage that went 7+ yards (reflecting explosiveness and downfield blocking by non-OL) was 59.3% of those 165 carries, compared to 52.8% league avg. So if pass blocking improves and the OL can get that initial push on rushing plays, FSU's running game would appear to be set to explode.
