-In 2012 I think Louisville got very lucky drawing Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Of all the BCS teams they Florida had the 2nd lowest difference between scoring offense and defense at 12 points. Both teams had a very low margin for error on the offensive side of the ball. Florida's offense never got anything going and Louisville won 33-23.

-The 3rd lowest difference of the BCS teams in 2012 belonged to Notre Dame, who just so happened to get their butts dusted by Alabama who had the 2nd highest difference at 27.8, trailing Oregon by 0.2 pts.

-Take away from it what you want. I just thought the numbers were interesting. The spikes in Louisville's production are mainly do to the schedule being weaker. No doubt there was improvement across the board for them. I think it's apparent that we are going to need to have an explosive offense capable of putting up bigger numbers than we have over the last couple of years. Louisville had struggles against teams with good defenses.

-The Baylor UCF game is a mystery to me.

-Florida State's opponents... yuk! I'm not sure if there's a weaker schedule for a BCS National Champ.

-FSU has the highest differential between scoring offense and defense. 2nd is 2001 Miami, 3rd is 2005 Texas.

-Both FSU and Lousiville faced the same avg ranking of scoring defense at 64th. FSU's offense was 19.1 points better.
