Team DataThe NinosCorner Number (NCN) for the analysis of a team showcases the efficiency of a team by calculating the offensive and defensive productivity of a team. These numbers are categorized into two sections; Offense (NCN-OFF) and Defense (NCN-DEF). To calculate the NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF, Offense and Defense Success Rates (OSR and DSR) are analyzed to illustrate how successful and effective a team is.
Success Rates are calculated through the completion of successful plays. Successful plays occur when a play gains enough yardage to keep an offense progressing towards a 1st down (50% of yardage on 1st down, 70% on 2nd down, or 100% on 3rd/4th down). In addition to the Success Rates, other statistical metrics are incorporated into our proprietary formula to calculate the final NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF. NCNs are based on a 100 point composite score with higher NCNs equating to a better overall score for respective teams.
In addition, explosive play (XP) rates are calculated to showcase the lethality and instant-strike ability of an offense. XPs are defined as any play that gains more than 15 yards for collegiate football.
This statistical metric represents the offensive skill player’s value based upon an average player at their respective position. A higher number equates to a better overall score for a team/player.
In regards to the NCN-OFF score, teams that posted a higher composite score won their respective game 86% of the time. Teams with a higher NCN-DEF score over the course of a game won that respective game 89% of the time. When a team posts a higher NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF over their opponent, their win probability jumps to 92%.
Player DataThe NCN gives a numerical representation for an offensive skill position player that measures a player’s efficiency at their respective skill position. This statistical metric represents the offensive skill player’s value based upon an average player at their respective position. A higher number equates to a better overall score for a team/player.
On the offensive side of the ball, the NCN measure’s Wide Receiver, Tight End, and Running Back efficiencies based on a number of data components, resulting in a composite score rated on a 100 point scale.
