Today’s episode looks at a couple of metrics from the good people at Coaches By The Numbers (h/t LHB).
CBTN tracks coaches by a formula which measures the average percentage of points and yards they accumulated per game with respect to the opponents’ normal points and yards averages. (It’s similar in concept to Matt Melton’s SDPI, although more broadly applied, in that it incorporates points and non-conference FBS games.)
Anywho, if you look at this chart from CBTN ranking the performances of last year’s SEC offensive coordinators, you’ll make the shocking discovery that Mike Bobo didn’t totally embarrass himself. (Before you ask, the defensive coordinator rankings are here.)
The point here isn’t to say that Bobo is the bestest at what he does in the wide, wide world of sports. (Hell, he wasn’t tops in the conference, so it’s not like we need to go anywhere near there.) But I think it does reinforce Patrick Garbin’s recent point that perhaps we should be searching for other scapegoats to pin Georgia’s 2011 shortcomings on.
Me, I’m still voting for special teams.
