Big 10 2008 versus 2009 Statistics

Submitted by M-Go-Bleu on November 22nd, 2009 at 4:10 PM

Of Note:

We finished 8th in Scoring Offense in 2008 and 9th in 2009 relative to the Big10.

We finished 10 in Scoring Defense in 2008 and 11th in 2009.

Relative to the rest of the Big10 we went backwards on both Offense and Defense. How crazy is that?

Turnover Margin number 11 in B10 -.62 in 2008 and number 11 in 2009 -1.62. Worse in 2009, the next closest in Big10 is Michigan State at -.88.

We averaged an extra turnover per game this year.

Ahoy, chart.

[The turnover and turnover margin was so small.. sorry it's unreadable]

Time of possession actually dropped from last year to this year.. somewhat surprising, though I suppose the offense scoring more in general (and faster) helped.

Edit: This information is relative to the entire season.. not big ten play.
