Pat updated the MOE for 2011

by Jay ⌂, San Diego, Thursday, January 05, 2012, 14:00

Would you believe we were slightly, ever so slightly better with offensive MOEs this year?

11.5% in 2011, versus 12.3% in 2010.

Year	M.O.E.	Plays	Errors	Sack	Pen	Fum	INT	Drop
2010	12.31%	902	111	20	32	7	16	36
2011	11.51%	938	108	17	42	12	17	20

Better in sacks given up and dropped passes, worse in penalties, fumbles, and INTs.

but really you would expect improvement, more than what we saw even, considering it's Year Two of the spread offense installation. That it was such a slight improvement is disappointing.

While turnovers get the bulk of the blame for the offense this year, and rightly so, there was only 1 more interception and 4 more fumbles than last year. The thing that I noticed, and I mentioned before, was the bigger uptick in offensive penalties. Both delay of game and false start penalties were far too frequent considering how veteran our line (and QB really) were down the stretch. We'll see how Martin and the new OL coach do at improving these results.

Another thing that was frustrating was how poorly ND did in M.O.E. score against the best teams they faced. The last two games of the year had numbers of 19% and 15% (the first and third worst results of the season) Yes, give some credit to FSU's defense (and the flu), but it's still disappointing considering the 7.8% put3.8% put up against Miami last year.

Most of this is common sense as we all saw a sloppy offense this year, but it's always nice to have some numbers to help compare year to year. Next year ideally I'd like to see the overall score get around 10% or so (which is where ND was in 2005), but if we're breaking in a new QB it might not actually improve all that much.
