UA Football 2010: Youth is Served


Recommended Posts

DF keeps reminding all of us that the best days for the current crop of players will be in the next two or three years, so I coupled my curiosity and my insomnia and I plugged the numbers into Excel. I charted all-purpose yardage in the first six games (interception, punt, and kick-off returns are included, but passing yards are not), and I was pretty amazed with the current make-up of the team (at least on the offensive side.)

 

One caveat: I listed Andrew Smith as a Tailback, which I think is a fair choice.

 

Some bullets:

-The top seven players ranked by average all-purpose yards per game are all freshman and sophomores.

-23 players have appeared on the list for all-purpose yardage, and only three were seniors. Of these seniors, only one (Jason Poore) is classified as an offensive player. Chris Blais (OLB) had a 35 yard interception return and Trevor Anderson (DT) returned a punt.

-The first senior to appear on the list (sorted from highest to lowest average for all-purpose yards) is Chris Blais at number 11, but he is a defensive player. The first offense-based player is Jason Poore at number nineteen.

-The WR position has had an average of 3.00 all-purpose yards from its senior-year players.

-The TB position has had an average of 3.50 all-purpose yards from its junior-year players, and no senior-year TB has gained a yard all season.

-The only TE to gain yards all season is a sophomore.

 

I have posted a few charts and it is clear that this is an extremely young team.

With post-season possibilities all but done, maybe we can mix it up a bit on the offensive front and really watch these kids develop.
