Comparing Points Per Possession vs TCU!

As I explained in the last post, points per possession I think is the best and most fair way to compare teams as it takes everything into account and boils down to only what’s most important, how many points to they score on average per possession.

A quick, albeit crude, solution to not allowing blowouts and the subsequent 4th quarter backups from skewing the data I just looked at the first 3 quarters of games, ignored possessions that were ended by the halftime whistle, and I ignored games against FCS teams (for obvious reasons).

TCU is averaging 3.077ppp* and giving up an average of 2.188ppp (for a net of +0.889)

OU is averaging 3.308ppp and giving up an average of 1.486ppp (for a net of +1.822)

I think that net ppp rating is the best representative stat of a team that takes into account all the different parts of the game naturally but isn’t skewed by pace. That means that on average for every two possessions (one for each team) in an OU game OU gains an average of 1.822 points over its competition.

* If you don’t take the Kansas game which was affected by all the injuries their ppp gets raised to 3.259ppp.
