Wyoming Changes Defensive Coordinator

ESPN reports that the University of Wyoming Cowboys have replaced defensive coordinator Chris Tormey with Jamar Cain.  This season the Wyoming Cowboys are a team of contrasts, with a very productive offense and a rather weak defense using the Complex Invasion College Football Production Model.  If Wyoming's defense was better this team could be a BCS buster - their offense is that good.  Yet, losses to Texas State (better than many think), my alma mater - Colorado State and last week to San Jose State seem to be reasons for the change.  The next four games - only the Hawaii game seems to be a likely win as Fresno State, Boise State and Utah State all match up well with Wyoming.

Here is a graph of Wyoming's total rank, offensive rank and defensive rank using the Complex Invasion College Football Production Model.

Here is Wyoming's regular season schedule, with their results and weekly total, offensive and defensive rankings for each week.  Note that Wyoming's best defensive rank was during their bye week on October 5th.
