Statistical goodness from Football Study Hall

+

Saw this last week and momentarily forgot about it. This was already apparent from looking at Sagarin and other statistical measurements, but the Big East stacks up pretty well against the other conferences over the past few years even taking into account their awful 2010 season. Of course, everyone's natural reaction to this result seems to be not trusting the numbers, but I don't see what's wrong with biting the bullet. On average, the Big East has been a fairly good conference. It doesn't really have enough marquee teams at the top, but one through eight, it averages out pretty well. The Big Ten has Ohio State, but they also have a fair bit of crummy teams. My other reaction from looking at those numbers? Overwhelming bitterness towards former offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca for the offense tanking the past few years. I mean, it's not really fair to rue the ground the guy walks on. He was a capable position coach in over his head as a coordinator. But Rutgers football lost cachet over the past two years, and it will be a challenge winning back everyone's trust. FSH also has an article statistically ranking the best and worst offensive lines in college football. One guess who ranks dead last in adjusted sack rate. Sigh....
