| More Sports Board|| Sports data nerds: Is there a free source of CFB play by play data online? - alabamabuckeye on 1/26/15 at 8:37 pm|
The only sources I can find right now are not formatted in a way that is easy to manipulate in Excel/R, obviously, and the one site I've found wants to charge $2,500/yr.
| Alabama Sports Board|| nm - alabamabuckeye on 1/25/15 at 1:03 pm|
I just looked at our stats on Sports-Reference.com and it lists no players with TFLs (not including sacks). Is this really true? If so, that's incredible in a sad way.
| Alabama Sports Board|| Did it seem like our opponents NEVER turned the ball over? - alabamabuckeye on 1/25/15 at 12:02 am|
If so, there's good reason.
Our 2014 opponents ran 47.3 Plays Per Turnover, the highest rate allowed in the Saban era. Our 2013 opponents had the second highest Plays Per Turnover rate at 40.6.
By contrast, our offense managed its worst Plays Per Turnover rate in the Saban era at 46.3. Our bes...

| Alabama Sports Board|| POLL: Predict our RB depth chart for next season - alabamabuckeye on 1/24/15 at 1:42 pm|
Next poll, who will be taking handoffs from Jacob Coker? Will it be Derrick Henry, who is Tarzan in space but Jane in the tackles? Or Kenyan Drake, the explosive RB/WR with fumblitis? Or the young upstart Tyren Jones, who showed flashes of brilliance in the 3rd string role?

| Alabama Sports Board|| POLL RESULTS: Predict our QB depth chart for next season - alabamabuckeye on 1/22/15 at 8:41 am|
I just started putting together an Excel spreadsheet to track various data regarding our beloved Crimson Tide (I am a data analyst IRL), and one of the aspects of this include polls.
The first one is predicting the order of our QB depth chart.
| SEC Rant|| What is your team's most epic collapse? - alabamabuckeye on 1/20/15 at 11:01 pm|
Listening to the Van Pelt podcast today and they were listing their personal team's epic collapses, on par with the Packers against the Seahawks. For me, I would have to say Iron Bowl 2010. Some people would say 2013 with the Kick Six, but that was a tight game the entire time, pretty much. We were ...
| More Sports Board|| Would Tom Brady matter had he gone in the first round? - alabamabuckeye on 1/19/15 at 1:18 am|
I'm a big Tom Brady fan, but if he had gone in the first round to the Jets instead of Pennington, would he still be in the league today?
I tend to believe that all of the NFL "busts", at least at QB, could have actually been successful had they been drafted later into a better situation. That was...
