    Breaking Down The Numbers: Total Defense

    National rankings based on 119 teams and the ACC rankings on 12 teams:

    Stat: Total Defense- FSU defense allowed 362 yards a game in 2007 or 5.1 yards per play.

    ACC Ranking: 2006- #5 2007- #10

    National Ranking: 2006- #18 2007- #42

    It was clear in 2007 that Mickey Andrews did not have the kind of defense that he has come to be known for during the dynasty years. A less than adequate secondary and key losses on defense contributed to the decline in the defensive stats in 2007. In 2008 Andrews will be looking to replace Geno Hayes who left early for the NFL this year and bolster a secondary that had glaring weaknesses in 2007.
