SEC net ypp, Week 7

After week seven’s slate, here’s the conference order by net yards per play, with the offensive ypp and defensive ypp, respectively, in parenthesis.

As I’ve been doing, I also show the week-to-week change in the net figure (stats via

  1. Alabama:  2.54 (7.95; 5.41) [net change:  DNP]
  2. Florida:  1.77 (7.42; 5.65) [net change:  +.09]
  3. TAMU:  1.15 (6.71; 5.56) [net change:  +.61]
  4. Auburn:  0.51 (5.81; 5.30) [net change:  DNP]
  5. Georgia:  0.39 (5.42; 5.03) [net change: -.60]
  6. Arkansas:  0.10 (5.26; 5.16) [net change:  +.28]
  7. Kentucky:  -0.20 (4.83; 5.03) [net change:  DNP]
  8. Ole Miss:  -0.31 (6.76; 7.07) [net change:  DNP]
  9. Mississippi State: -0.62 (4.59; 5.21) [net change:  -.31]
  10. Missouri:  -0.86 (5.37; 6.23) [net change: DNP]
  11. South Carolina:  -1.00 (5.23; 6.23) [net change:  -.61]
  12. LSU:  -1.02 (6.17; 7.19) [net change:  DNP]
  13. Tennessee:  -1.09 (4.74; 5.83) [net change:  -.16]
  14. Vanderbilt:  -2.07 (4.74; 6.81) [net change:  +1.02]

Here’s the current order for turnover margin.

  • +8:  Arkansas
  • +5:  Alabama
  • +4:  Auburn, Kentucky, LSU
  • +1:  Florida, TAMU
  •  0:  South Carolina
  • -2:  Georgia
  • -3:  Ole Miss, Tennessee
  • -4:  Missouri
  • -7:  Mississippi State
  • -8:  Vanderbilt

And, observations:

  • Turnover margin been berry, berry good for Arkansas.
  • Last in net ypp and last in turnover margin pretty much sums up Vandy’s 2020.
  • Georgia’s decline shows the Dawgs have more than just a quarterback problem right now.

    If the season ended today the Pitt Boss should be coach of the year.

    Not that we needed any more reason to root for Pittman, but Arkansas plays the Gators this weekend.

    Ark is really playing well. I watched their game with Tenn – fun game to watch.

    In dreamland, What if…
    Arkansas with the pit boss strolls into swampland and pulls off the shocker with a pissed off F. Franks. Ark’s D is legit and probably can defend the wheel route a little better. If Pitts doesn’t play that O and Trask don’t look quite as dynamic.
    LSwho finds itself with one game to play to shock the world after a nothing burger of a season and takes this opportunity as their “sec champ” game. Their O can score points but can that defense defend air.

    Ark and lsu seem like the only two teams on the turds schedule to even give them a game.

    Dawgs back door into sec champ game with a complete and healthy squad ready to take on bama.

    I just woke up from a dream…all I have left to cling to in 2020.

    A little off the subject.
    Derek made a great point in an earlier post.
    Georgia’s offense was percolating very well until one single play took SB out (a filthy dirty hit that should have led to a penalty and ejection of the Florida player, and Mullens should have been roasted by Danielson for the hypocrisy of it, especially after he had made such a fool of himself against MO last week. If Georgia had done that, it would have been replayed over and over again until the reviewing asshat in Birmingham called it)
    It was never the same after that. With Pickens sitting in Athens and no viable back up to SB, we were finished.
    Florida might have won anyway, but it was the turning point that never relented.
    We missed open guys..but when we did hit them, they seem to have hams for hands. We have one functionable QB and he isn’t stellar..and after the dirty hit, he was bad…and we had (have) no backup.

    How is our decline due to anything other than abysmal QB play?
