return to Chart Friday

by Jay ⌂, San Diego, Friday, January 25, 2013, 11:47

Something I threw together after conversing about ND's red zone woes, below. Here's a chart of offensive FEI scores versus the points per game that offense put up.

ND is circled in red. As you can see, we were a severe outlier. For the FEI we achieved, we should have been scoring north of 35 ppg.

Not a precisely accurate conclusion.

by LaFortune Teller ⌂ @, South Bend, Friday, January 25, 2013, 14:33 @ Jay

For the FEI we achieved, we should have been scoring north of 35 ppg.

I would modify that statement to read, "For the FEI we achieved, we would have been expected to score north of 35 points per game against an average set of defenses."

How is the FEI calculated?

by omahadomer, Friday, January 25, 2013, 15:58 @ LaFortune Teller

Is it just an "internal" calculation, that is, how you performed in an absolute sense, or does it compare how you performed taking into account the strength of the opponent? If it's the second, I agree with you. If it's the first, I don't.

It's the second.

The unadjusted 'abosolute' measure I calculate is Offensive Efficiency. Irish were 42nd in that stat -- still an outlier compared to our scoring production. Offensive FEI is opponent-adjusted.

We played from ahead a lot of the year --

by omahadomer, Friday, January 25, 2013, 14:23 @ Jay

The USC game is my favorite example. We won total yardage something like 420-280 and won the TO battle 2-0. Most of the time, that will translate into a 21 point win. But we played very conservatively in the red zone with Kelly just trying to get us back up by 2 scores. The one time all year we needed multiple scores in a hurry (excluding Alabama) was PItt and we got 14 points in the span of about 8 minutes.

We had 215 yards in the fourth quarter of the Pitt game

In addition to the two TD drives, we had a 91 yard drive that ended in an interception.

based on this chart...

by Spesh ⌂ @, Los Angeles, Friday, January 25, 2013, 13:04 @ Jay

There have been some recent conversations about the productivity of next year's offense. It's possible that our offense next year could be less efficient overall, but end up scoring more points per game, right? That's how much of an outlier we were?

I feel like we have that conversation a lot for some reason

by HumanRobot @, Cybertron, Friday, January 25, 2013, 13:42 @ Spesh

We definitely had it after the 2009 season.

I wonder if a tough offensive SOS is a major contributor to depressed scoring relative to efficiency.

Very easily.
