Spreading it out

Given the random sample sizes involved, I’m not sure how useful a list of how the current SEC head coaches have done against the spread is, but if you’re interested, here you go.

All I can say after reading that is don’t bet against Sam Pittman.

    If you’re looking for someone who is going to find a way to motivate a football player to squeeze every last ounce of potential out of their talent then Sam Pittman’s going to be your guy. I’m thrilled for the success he’s having as a head coach, but man I wish he was still on our side.

    Also, did they delete Nick Saban? It jumps from 4 to 6 and Saban’s stats aren’t included. Guess he’s 5th.

    Never he so much respect for a non-Georgia coach.

    Remember the BCS period when style points were bling for the ambitious? Some coaches still won’t take their foot off the gas when the game is in hand. because their fans expect and demand it.
    If the spread is outlandish (see GOFH), Kirby is more interested in getting it over with and limiting injuries and wear and tear on his starters than he is in beating the spread.
    And we’ve seen fan bases celebrating moral victories because they beat the spread even as they got their asses kicked.
    Then you have the position that Dabo is in where you don’t play a tough enough schedule to make a statement by just winning them all so you have to rack-up those style points. I wonder how Dabo’s numbers on this look.

    Interesting how everybody hovers around 50% for the most part. Vegas is pretty good at what they do.

    Home Dog: Home Dog: 2-0. One of those has to be Auburn 2016, they were #8 and the good guys were unranked. I can’t think of the other.

    Also, these are sexy:
    Road: 18-8
    Road Favorite: 17-6

    Pittman isn’t as good when favored as he is when the underdog. He hovers around 50% ATS when favored but sits at about 73% ATS as an underdog. And as a home favorite he’s right at 50% ATS but as a home dog he’s 75% ATS. In other words, take Arkansas and the points when a dog. And for the love of God, don’t take Georgia and give points in Sanford.

    GA has never had a home field advantage, as long as I can remember

    On the road, we will pack the stadium and make it tough on the home team but at home not so much. The stadium is sold out but we must be too good to the visiting team. I am sure we talked about this awhile back, but Stanford is not the loudest stadium. That is because of the way it is built. You might think it is loud but I have been on the field in our stadium and I have been in other stadiums that are much louder. I don’t know if that is the reason for our home record but it does make a difference.


    • We’ve lost 1 game in the last 6 years at home including 2020. You must not have been at the Arkansas or Kentucky games last year where the place absolutely rocked.

        “We’ve lost 1 game in the last 6 years at home including 2020.” Pretty impressive stat. But now it’s got me thinking of that goddamn SCAR game in 2019. Will never understand what happened that day.

      I’ll give those one-toothed, orange and white wearing hillbillies in Knoxville credit for something. Their place can get loud. I suppose it has to do with being all metal, completely enclosed, etc. From about the 0:45 second mark in the fourth quarter to the catch on P-44 Haynes in 2001, that place was absolutely deafening.
