Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

And while we're on the topic of mediocre performances...

I'll say this: The stats make me feel a bit better about Cincy's performance overall. I didn't get this game, and following the score as it remained 0-0 well into the fourth quarter made me regret, with increasing intensity, my pick of Cincinnati to be a darkhorse top-25 team. The Bearcats certainly aren't that right now, but they did pretty much dominate a pretty poor opponent statistically; it just took a while for that to matter on the scoreboard. Miami's offense never had a chance (four first downs! 87 total yards!), but Cincy kept figuring out ways to trip up before the end zone. It's difficult to manage 24 first downs and score only twice (and once on a short field after a turnover), but that's what Cincy did. Regardless, they won, and their defense looked good. So there's that. But that UC offense is incredibly questionable. (And yes, I know Munchie Legaux is out.)
