Percentage of opposing drives resulting in touchdowns, field goal attempts, punts, and turnovers for the Hokie defense. Also graphed is the points allowed per drive since 2008. All stats in ACC play only.
Bud Foster's scheme was alien to most offensive minds when he first arrived in the ACC. He had a light defense that relied heavily on the blitz and turnovers. Now, we have 2004-2011 game footage. The Hokie defense was forcing a turnover every 4 drives in 2008. That number has climbed to one forced turnover for every 7 opposing drives in 2011. The average Hokie ACC opponent only has 11 drives in a game so basically the Hokies are only getting one and a half turnovers per game. It's a sad day for the Hokie defense.
What do you all think? Is Bud Foster losing his edge? Are the Hokies on the brink of catrastrophic failure? I think so. Tell me your opinions!
