Yeah fair. Still the offense vs Wyo punted 6 times and turned the ball over

3 times. Two of the turnovers gave the ball to Wyo in CSU territory which Wyo turned into 14 pts. We gained exactly 20 yards of rushing in that game, averaging ONE yard per carry. Still - to your point - we gave up 5 YPC despite the fact that their QB only threw it 10 times. Knew they would run it and still couldn't stop them.

Nevada - similar...we punted 7 times and threw one INT in CSU territory so the offense didn't help. But yeah, clearly Nevada's offense was well ahead of our defense the last couple of years.

I'm not saying that I think we'll have a great defense but that there's a reasonable chance we could be average-ish, which would be a big improvement. And it will help if the offense can turn the ball over more like once per game instead of almost twice per game, Punter can more effectively pin opponents inside the 20, and we can be effective at all in Kickoff & Punt coverage.
