SEC Net YPP, Week 6

For the majority of the conference, the downward trend in net YPP continues, which is another way of saying the SEC is in the midst of beating itself up.  (As always, stats via cfbstats.com.)

  1. Georgia 2.89 (6.49 o; 3.60 d) [NC: -.33]
  2. Florida 2.37 (7.17 o; 4.80 d) [NC: +.68]
  3. Kentucky 2.00 (6.61 o; 4.61 d) [NC: -.01]
  4. Alabama 1.72 (6.72 o; 5.00 d) [NC:  -.38]
  5. Ole Miss 1.72 (7.35 o; 5.63 d) [NC:  -.25]
  6. Arkansas 1.63 (6.73 o; 5.10 d) [NC: -.62]
  7. Auburn:  1.56 (6.40 o; 4.84 d) [NC:  -.71]
  8. Tennessee 1.44 (6.31 o; 4.87 d) [NC: +.10]
  9. Texas A&M .92 (5.93 o; 5.01 d) [NC: -.29]
  10. Mississippi State .32 (5.68 o; 5.36 d) [DNP]
  11. LSU .15 (5.62 o; 5.47 d) [NC: -.38]
  12. South Carolina -.02 (5.19 o; 5.21 d) [NC: -.38]
  13. Missouri -.29 (6.55 o; 6.84 d) [NC: 0]
  14. Vanderbilt -2.44 (4.27 o; 6.71 d) [NC: -.34]

Turnover margin, after week six:

  • +5:  Ole Miss
  • +4:  Alabama, Missouri
  • +3:  Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee
  • +2:  Arkansas
  • +1:  Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State
  • -3:  Florida
  • -4: Texas A&M
  • -6:  Vanderbilt
  • -8:  Kentucky

Observations:

  • Florida is the recipient of this week’s Vanderbilt bounce.
  • Three teams have net YPP numbers that could be CFP worthy; two of those are the last undefeated teams in the conference.
  • Georgia’s defensive YPP is a full yard better than second place Kentucky’s is.  Vanderbilt’s offensive YPP is almost a full yard worse than South Carolina’s.

    That UK turnover margin is bad. Talk about lady luck keeping them undefeated. That is gonna run out Saturday.

      Eh, they’re +1 in the last two games. Their turnover margin actually made them look a little worse than they were heading into the Florida game. Not that they have much of a chance this week. They’re another team that relies on running the ball to be effective, and you can’t run on Georgia’s defense.

    It annoys me that Auburn got over 4 yards a play by taking those timeouts to pick up garbage yards. I really wish Robinson was good enough to actually make a play on that deep shot.

    Do all of the Better Folks from Vandy really want to keep whoring themselves out for a paycheck ?

    The facts that Bama is the same as Ole Miss in Net YPP and, even more mind boggling, much closer to them than us in D YPP is amazing.

    I think at this point YPP make a bit more sense if we use just the “vs. conference” numbers (it’s on cfbstats, but only on the team details->total offense->split stats screen). Kentucky’s games against Chattanooga and UL Monroe (who are actually a bit worse than Chattanooga) are basically a big artificial boost considering UGA has only played real live teams or better. Most of the other SEC teams have a couple of super-patsies under their belts already, so the different calc with {net change from all opponents} mostly sinks everyone else:

    Georgia +2.62 (6.46 o, 3.84 d) {-0.17}
    Florida +1.72 (6.64 o, 4.92 d) {-0.65}
    Tennessee +1.38 (7.24 o, 5.86 d) {-0.06}
    Kentucky +1.15 (6.33 o, 5.18 d) {-0.85}
    Alabama +0.12 (5.90 o, 5.78 d) {-1.60}
    Ole Miss +0.11 (6.78 o, 6.67 d) {-1.61}
    Arkansas -0.05 (6.22 o, 6.27 d) {-1.68}
    Miss St. -0.41 (5.63 o, 6.04 d) {-0.73}
    Auburn -0.43 (5.17 o, 5.60 d) {-1.68}
    Texas A&M -0.60 (5.61 o, 6.21 d) {-1.52}
    LSU -0.63 (5.60 o, 6.23 d) {-0.78}
    South Carolina -1.61 (4.74 o, 6.35 d) {-1.59}
    Missouri -2.84 (5.29 o, 8.13 d) {-2.55}
    Vanderbilt -4.43 (2.91 o, 7.34 d) {-1.99}

    That seems like better placement of Kentucky, at least. Tennessee just had really poor YPP offense until beginning SEC play. Alabama seems weird but they were only -0.16 in this game
