SEC Net YPP, Week 10

The bye weeks have evened out, so everyone is playing on a level field of nine weeks’ worth of data.  (As always, stats via cfbstats.com.)

  1. Georgia 3.11 (6.89 o; 3.78 d) [NC: +.12]
  2. Alabama 1.71 (6.59 o; 4.88 d) [NC:  -.07]
  3. Texas A&M 1.46 (6.05 o; 4.59 d) [NC: +.21]
  4. Florida 1.27 (6.71 o; 5.44 d) [NC: -.25]
  5. Tennessee 1.27 (6.52 o; 5.25 d) [NC: +.13]
  6. Ole Miss 1.16 (6.81 o; 5.65 d) [NC:  +.15]
  7. Arkansas 1.16 (6.51 o; 5.35 d) [NC: -.29]
  8. Auburn:  .93 (6.09 o; 5.16 d) [NC:  -.50]
  9. Kentucky .41 (5.98 o; 5.59 d) [NC: -.38]
  10. Mississippi State .16 (5.67 o; 5.51 d) [NC: +.10]
  11. South Carolina -.08 (5.33 o; 5.41 d) [NC: +.13]
  12. LSU -.19 (5.45 o; 5.64 d) [NC: -.11]
  13. Missouri -.71 (6.10 o; 6.81 d) [NC: -.36]
  14. Vanderbilt -2.11 (4.50 o; 6.61 d) [NC: DNP]

Turnover margin, after week six:

  • +11:  Ole Miss
  • +8:  Alabama
  • +4:  Missouri
  • +3:  Tennessee
  • +2:  Arkansas, Georgia, LSU
  • +1:  South Carolina
  •   0:  Mississippi State, Texas A&M
  • -1:  Auburn
  • -3:  Vanderbilt
  • -9:  Florida
  • -12:  Kentucky

Observations:

  • Georgia is now first in offensive ypp and defensive ypp.  Pretty, pretty good.
  • All TAMU does is keep climbing the rankings.
  • Vice versa, in Auburn’s case.
  • The gap between one and two is the same size as that between thirteen and fourteen.

    I was thinking today, that while there are probably better teams nationally with Net YPP, how many of them are likely to end up in the playoffs. Of course UGA is the cream of the crop defensively with YPP, but now their offensive YPP is higher enough that there won’t be many more in contention that can best them. And, I think limiting it to FBS games only, they would likely show even better, despite their Net YPP probably being a little worse.

    So what is it we are shooing for? We want, at minimum, a Net YPP of 2.00, right? Higher is better obliviously.

    I find it hard to believe that we are only +2 in turnovers. We should be at least +5 or better.

    Strangely, turnover margin has a pretty weak correlation to scoring margin. Georgia ranks 5th in TO margin, and first in Scoring Margin. TAMU ranks 10th in TO Margin and 2nd in Scoring Margin. My guess is that TO Margin does not take into account “hidden turnovers”, like 3 & outs deep in your own territory, and special teams turnovers (missed/blocked FG, blocked punts). Georgia D is getting a ton of 3 & outs.
