re: I assume Kiffin will adjust his analytics until he get inside the opponents 40 - TheMuffinMan
[quote]15 times (in FBS games, FEI doesn't include vs FCS stats)[/quote] Thanks for pulling that. Did you go to individual game summaries is there a dataset you grabbed it from?...

re: I assume Kiffin will adjust his analytics until he get inside the opponents 40 - TheMuffinMan
Interesting… how many drives like that did Bama face? I wonder if they had a super small sample and thus were subject to way more variance. ...

re: Messi kick a FG? - TheMuffinMan
While an excellent ball striker, Messi’s best skills are agility, awareness, and dribbling/ball control. There’s no reason to believe he would be a better NFL kicker than Tucker, who’s just about automatic. ...

re: 2019 LSU>>>2020 Bama - TheMuffinMan
2020 Bama was more dominant than 2019 LSU, despite being a worse team, because of how poorly teams generally navigated the pandemic. I think their dominance that year was more of a reflection of Saban’s leadership than it was an indication of the greatest roster ever, though they clearly had a stron...

re: Brian Kelly and "analytics" on going for 2 - TheMuffinMan
“LSU should have kicked the extra point.” Why? Because missing the conversion is more damaging to momentum than making it is beneficial to both momentum and the forthcoming game scenarios? That’s my most charitable read of your point, and it’s the exact reason analytics provide an edge — because ...

re: Why does it seem like there are way more scrums in football now? - TheMuffinMan
I think the increasing focus on player safety results in more stalemate tackles that would’ve previously ended in bodyslams, guys going low on the stood-up ballcarrier, or headhunters laying the wood, etc. ...

re: LSU fans, WTF happened against Tennessee - TheMuffinMan
The weekend prior, Tenn had a bye and LSU had an awful grind-it-out nailbiter against Auburn. We spotted them their first TD after taking the opening kickoff to the returner’s face, and we failed a couple 4th down conversions in the first half. Between rest/preparation time and the bounces of the ba...

re: Former LSU Star Ja'Marr Chase to be out a month or little longer with a hip injury. - TheMuffinMan
It’s a strained hip flexor, nothing like Bo’s injury. They’re annoying and easy to aggravate, but there’s no reason to be worried long term. ...

re: Harold Perkins is Micah Parsons - TheMuffinMan
Stylistically, it’s a fair comparison. We used Marcel Brooks in that kind of role as well. It’s interesting to see how much success safety-sized pass rushers can have in the modern game. Parsons played DE in high school and was already 230+ as a freshman at PSU, whereas Perkins will need to grow...

re: LSU vs UF Breakdown - TheMuffinMan
Having watched another great film breakdown from a UF podcaster that was posted previously, I have no idea what their defensive coordinator is doing. We had 3rd and 3 in the 4th quarter and their DBs were all 7+ yards off the LOS, conceding multiple routes for the first down with no resistance. It w...

re: Garbage roughing on Burrow - TheMuffinMan
I usually agree with Gene. Now I understand why you’re confused. Gene’s quote doesn’t address the type of contact, only the timing. I quoted the literal rulebook, which explicitly outlaws both forcible contact with the crown of the helmet and forcible contact to the head/neck/facemask if a playe...

re: Garbage roughing on Burrow - TheMuffinMan
Do you see anything about the pocket in the above rule? Do you see where it says that defenseless passing posture is throwing or just having thrown a pass? It’s okay to be upset. But don’t throw your literacy out with the bath water. ...
