@Texas-Hawk-10 The difference is, its putting up more points and yardage against better teams man. Nothing you can say will change that. It is my opinion that Koenning sucks a**, but it is a fact that Dearman has done better. Opinions don’t change facts but facts change opinions of logically thinking individuals. I know you have a connection there but he ain’t nothing and ain’t never held a job so hard to argue otherwise. At least we have had fun arguing, more so than watching the game lol, you can have the last word peace my friend.
I’ve never called Koenning an elite OC because he’s not. He’s also not nearly as crappy as you claim. Carter Stanley however is the worst QB KU has had in the post Mangino/Reesing era. I’ve talked with wide receivers that played under Weis and Beaty with all of those QB’s during that stretch. Straight up said Carter Stanley is a bad QB that makes bad passes and bad decisions.
Dearmon’s offense is also going to naturally put up more yards because of the style of offense it is. Now that there’s tape of the Kansas version of his offense, we’re seeing teams shut it down just they did after tape of Koenning’s version came out.
Since you want to keep harping on the Coastal game, KU averaged 4.7 yards per carry that game. Running the football was not the issue that game. It was Carter Stanley’s inability to get anything going in the passing game that night that cost KU that game. Stanley threw for 109 yards on 19 attempts with 2 picks that game. If Carter Stanley had done anything in the passing game that night, KU wins that game.
The reason Stanley has a higher completion % than Bender did last year is because Stanley’s attempts are mostly short passes where the receiver has to make a man miss to gain yards. Peyton Bender threw a lot more intermediate and deep passes than Stanley does. That’s why the completion % is better for Stanley. There’s two stats however that Bender was much better than Stanley and those are why he was a far superior QB to Stanley. Bender was sacked at a lot lower rate than Stanley is and Bender didn’t turn the ball over at the rate Stanley does. Bender made much better reads and decisions than Stanley did and that’s why he kept beating Stanley out for the QB job.
