And yet after all of that, I bet what people remember most was the inability to march 5 yards on ND's defense in the red zone, the inability to score at all in the second half against Stanford and UW, (even though we beat UW) and the times where our offense completely sputtered and underperformed or looked like less than a #1 team. Need I mention UCLA, GT, and even Syracuse where IMO, the final score was misleading compared to what we saw on the field?
The statistics you quoted in conjunction with a 7-6 record shows two things:
1) That we have the talent to put up such gaudy numbers.
2) That on several occasions, Kiffin has failed to get the most out of that talent when it mattered most.
Tedford may or may not be the answer in 2013, but IMHO, Kiffin definitely isn't.

We were 103rd in the nation in Red Zone scoring.
Sobering statistic indeed.
I'm usually the first one to say stats are for losers, but this one cannot be ignored. Barkley's stats are pretty similar to 2011 except twice as many picks. Our rushing stats are the same as 2011, too. I think the injuries to Holmes and Heidari go overlooked sometimes.
