SEC net ypp, Week 10

Another week in the books, so here we go again.

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:  2.93 (7.96; 5.03) [net change:  +.15]
  2. Florida:  1.65 (7.41; 5.76) [net change:  +.28]
  3. TAMU:  1.01 (6.26; 5.25) [net change:  -.14]
  4. Georgia:  0.83 (5.81; 4.98) [net change: +.34]
  5. Arkansas:  0.58 (5.92; 5.34) [net change:  DNP]
  6. Missouri:  0.11 (5.61; 5.50) [net change: +.74]
  7. Ole Miss:  -0.04 (7.02; 7.06) [net change:  +.10]
  8. Auburn:  -0.08 (5.63; 5.71) [net change:  -.49]
  9. Kentucky:  -0.67 (4.86; 5.53) [net change:  -.35]
  10. Mississippi State: -0.70 (4.90; 5.60) [net change:  -0-]
  11. Tennessee:  -.87 (4.98; 5.85) [net change:  DNP]
  12. South Carolina:  -1.20 (5.31; 6.51) [net change:  -.24]
  13. LSU:  -1.49 (5.57; 6.79) [net change:  +.27]
  14. Vanderbilt:  -2.44 (4.78; 7.22) [net change:  -.25]

Here’s the current order for turnover margin.

  • +8:  Arkansas
  • +6:  Alabama
  • +4:  TAMU
  • +3:  Auburn, Kentucky
  • +2:  Florida
  • +1:  LSU
  •  0:  South Carolina
  • -2:  Georgia, Ole Miss
  • -3:  Missouri, Tennessee
  • -8:  Mississippi State
  • -9:  Vanderbilt

And, observations:

  • Alabama is ridiculous.  Florida is closer to Arkansas in net ypp than the Tide.
  • Fastest riser:  Missouri.  Fastest faller:  Auburn.
  • LSU finished last season with a 2.47 net in conference play.
  • There is one SEC team with a defensive ypp under 5.  Barely.  (There was only one in conference play last season, for what that’s worth.)

    Speaking of turnover margin, the SECN ran the 1981 Sugar Bowl last week and I was able to watch it. The broadcast at some point put up a jaw-dropping stat: the 1980 Georgia team was +33(!) for the year on turnover margin going into the Notre Dame game. Maybe it’s just because it’s a different era, but this year’s leader is +16 and last year’s national leader was +21 in 13 games (1.6/game). Georgia’s rate in 1980 was +3.3 per game!!!!!

      Speaking of the SECN, is anyone experiencing buffering problems with it in YoutubeTV? I have a fiber internet connection so that’s not the problem but it was really jumpy Saturday night especially the commercials, they would stop, buffer and then jump ahead. It also was hesitant during the game at times.

        I only buffered a couple of times on Saturday and it was very short. Sometimes when ours starts doing that we have to reboot the Roku.

    I have a TCL Roku TV and I’ll have to see if that is even possible.

    Senator, I like this evergreen content of yours, but do you have additional historical context for these numbers? I’m curious what the average offensive, defensive and net ypp averages have been for the division and conference winners in the last 5 years, and what Georgia’s have been for the last 5 years. That might be good to leave in the evergreen section of these posts for context. If you don’t have time and you can point me in the right direction, I’ll grab it myself. Thanks again for all the excellent content.

    Off subject a bit, but has there been any word on Campbell being disciplined for breaking off his assigned WR to make that interception? Who knew getting in front of an opposing WR would be a good thing?

    Speaking of Auburn, Gus was a whipped dog in his post game presser. Had no answers and looked like he knew what was coming when the monied boosters get to him. Lose another game this year and he’s done. IMO.
