2016 Sack-Adjusted Stats

Submitted by Seth on April 26th, 2017 at 10:51 AM

While making the stat boxes for HTTV I had to gather sack-adjusted stats from last year. I figured I would put all the data online for the readership in case this helps with creating content etc.

The link! The link! The link!

Sack-adjusted stats simply count sacks as passing plays. It makes a HUGE difference, for example Michigan State's rush defense last year jumps from middling to top 25 when you don't punish them for not making a ton of sacks.

I hid a lot of columns to make the initial view helpful but you can all download the whole thing and un-hide the data to get all you need from it.

Michigan's defense sacked the QB on 1 out of every 8 plays, led the country in sack rate, and that rate was over 3 standard deviations (3.18) above the mean sack rate last year?

Dear gentlemen,

Once you get to the point with your special lady that the pants are coming off, it does not matter what your sack looks or feels like, as long as it is intact and not diseased.

Some women date with a checklist, but that checklist probably doesn't have "smooth balls" in the top 10. Also, these women are crazy.

The front page post and Seth's subsequent comment about this particular thread compelled me to come comment.

I didn't realize Michigan had the highest sack percentage in the nation last season. That makes an abnormally large difference in our defense's rushing YPC and sack-adjusted rushing YPC (3.22 vs. 4.24 ypc).
