A revealing study on the Coaching Search.com site shows the Noles offense operates at a slower pace than the national average: 65 plays per game vs. 71. And would you believe FSU is tied with Miami for last in the ACC? No surprise that Clemson is first in snaps per game with 78, but who would've guessed that N.C. State is running ten more than the Noles?
Of course, it's not just the number of plays a team runs but how productive it is with those plays. Alabama and LSU both average the same as FSU. And the gators get off only 62 plays per game. Which probably has a lot to do with the SEC being last among all major conferences in play calls.
The speediest conference in play calling? It's the Big 12 where teams are obviously doing very little huddling as they average 74.
