They were 2 of the best La Tech offenses ever, but also 2 of the worst La Tech defenses ever. Very similar teams.

Speaking of Sagarin, our best two teams ever, based on final season ratings were 2014 (#34), Power Rating of 77.69, and 1999 (#35), Power Rating of 78.66. Those were impressive finishes under any standard.

And speaking of defenses, another item of interest to me is how many years have we have no losses of 21 points or more (of course, that can vary tremendously, based on your opponents, and how potent of an offense we had) but we have had four of those since 1990. That would be 1990, 2011, 2012, and 2016.

We had quite a few of those back in the 60's and 70's, but our opponents were drastically different. Starting with 1968, those years were 1968,1969, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975 (all Maxie Lambright), and 1982 (Billy Brewer).
