What is Mediocrity?

I see this thrown around a lot, so I checked the numbers.
From 2005 - 2012, LSU is ranked 3rd in winning percentage among all Division 1-A schools. 1st is Boise St, 2nd is TCU. Ohio St and Oregon fill out the top 5. That is out of 120 teams.

I am not a Miles supporter or hater, just a fan that loves data.

Take it for what it is worth.

And looking at the last 5 years only to erase the Saban's players argument - 2007-2012, LSU is tied for 5th in winning percentage behind Boise St, Bama, Oregon, TCU, and tied with Oklahoma. Again, that is out of 120 teams.

I've created a normal distribution to help show this.

I'm not sure, but I just learned in another thread that Vanderbilt would beat LSU and Vanderbilt is on the verge of being a better program

When that is the case, you know you're mediocre

Ask me after next year. If we lose 3-4 next year then we slipped some. Everybody and their sister wins 10 games in a season now.

He didn't actually say that, but perception is reality, correct? I think that's the MO around here.

Basically, LSU and Vanderbilt are on the same levels as programs.

I am in no way a Miles supporter. I just hate the lack of data.

Mediocrity is when you lose 5 or more games a year on average.

As long as Chavis is here we will never be mediocre.

How LSU's offense ranked nationally

2012 - 73 (before the bowl)
2011 - 77
2010 - 83
2009 - 112


I'd think calling LSU's offense mediocre is pretty generous.

agreed. But as a whole, the program is far from mediocre.

Not crossing the 50 yard line against Alabama.

More penalty yards than passing yards against Texas A&M

Losing to an ACC team that outplayed us in the trenches.

So only the offense is considered when one is rating a team?

That's like saying that a person is a great QBbecause he doesn't fumble the snap.
