By our standards it isnt. But, given the injuries and and a first year starter at QB, and one that isn't very far along in the pass game, what was expected?

Up until this year I thought teams won games by scoring more points than the other team. It turns out, a team can win by holding the other team to fewer points.

Mind blown.

Another thing to consider in those statistics is that our offense slowed its pace down significantly this year, giving less plays to score points and less plays to give up points.
Probably. The offense and defense are not completely independent. But does anyone have stats for avg number of possessions by both our offense and defense? A slower offense will generally give the defense more rest, but that may evaporate if the offense is unable to sustain drives.

OSU defense finishes 4th in Big 12.
OSU offense finishes 9th in Big 12.

I guess scoring 30, 27, 26 and 16 points is not considered an offensive juggernaut.
Immediate takes: Losing Wallace killed offensive production. Yes, Hubbard still got yards, but they were a lot harder to come by.

Offense was clearly down across the league, in terms of established star players. There was some damn good offensive talent that left the league last year & is playing in the NFL now, & the guys that replaced them just weren't as good.

Since in conference play OSU had the same number of points scored as they allowed (253) a 5 -4 record was a good result.
