This post suggests that you can from defensive rankings, not so much from offensive ones. Fascinating stuff, but it begs the question why that might be so. Does scheme matter more on offense than on defense? Or is it more about overall coaching (scheme, fundamentals, play calling, etc.) on that side of the ball?
And if that’s the case, does it make sense to pay good offensive coordinators less than defensive coordinators, assuming their recruiting skills are a wash?
What do you guys think?
