I keep telling you guys it’s hard to understand Georgia’s 2010 results based on the statistical story.
Filed under Georgia Football, Stats Geek!
I never had too much trouble wrapping my brain around the statistics on this. Six close losses without ever getting spanked, and we statistically dominated four teams.
Regarding our D – “rankings are inflated by three perfect, 250.0 performances. They “allowed” -6.9 points to Kentucky, UL-Lafayette, and Idaho State and 11.1 to Vanderbilt.”
Average it all out and we’re a bona fide paper tiger.
+1 It really is that simple.
It is really as simple as not making plays late. Or early fumbles that killed early momentum.
Or having a new D that crumpled in close games.
or a complete and total lack of coaching in things like preparedness, mental toughness, physical conditioning or not doing stupid retarded things with regularity, particularly off the field.
oh yeah, if caleb king takes another snap as a dawg i will be disappointed. that clown has missed games for three different reasons this year, and only one of them is a good reason.
Yeah, look at Auburn this year.
They have a Preparedness Coordinator, A Director of Mental Toughness and an Assistant to the Head Coach for Off Field Stupidity.
Oh, and Cam Newton.
If Caleb doesn’t fumble vs. Colorado and the 15-yard PF is called against Arkansas for roughing Murray, we’re probably 8-4.
MSU was a tossup – the fumble call still should’ve been looked at.
We got dominated by South Carolina, will not ever win again in Jacksonville, and realistically stood little chance vs. Auburn.
As I always say, Statistics lie and lies are Statistics. What is not accounted for? A whole lot……clock management, penalties, turnovers, missed calls, etc. I better stop there. Yes, it is one of the measures as to where a team should fall within a range, but you notice as you move down the line in the final chart, there is far more variables then constants. Having been schooled in the world of Statistics, the variables make this what it is, flawed. But a lot of fun to ponder.
Those of us at the games know what happened and most of us don’t want to talk about it anymore.
