Post-Game Analysis: Texas at Texas Tech (with NCN Metrics)

The NinosCorner Number (NCN) for the analysis of a team showcases a team’s efficiency by calculating offensive and defensive productivity metrics.  These numbers are categorized into two sections; Offense (NCN-OFF) and Defense (NCN-DEF).  Offense and Defense Success Rates are calculated in order to derive the final NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF.

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 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 on a running play and 20 or more yards on a passing play at the collegiate level.

Week 12 Recap: Texas vs Kansas State (w/ NCN Metrics)

Although this game had no bearing on the remainder of the season due to Texas not being Bowl Eligible for the first time since Charlie Strong’s last year on campus (yikes), it was good to see the team fight hard to finish out the season for the Longhorn seniors.

Some key metrics to observe from the game:

  • First off, great win for the seniors in their last game playing at DKR. No matter the outcome of the season, it’s always good to have your last game end in a ‘W’
  • Roschon Johnson is the kind of player this team needs at every position. He single-handedly willed this team to a win.
  • The Texas defense showed up for an entire game for the first time in a long time…actually since the first game of the season against ULL
  • Sark’s game-plan for K-State was spot on. Knowing you have 2 banged up QBs, one of which who did not play, Sarks use of the Ro-Cat formation was genius. Put the ball in the hands of the player who gives you the best opportunity to win against your current opponent.
  • Speaking of QBs, I would have loved to see how this season would have finished with 1) A healthy Casey Thompson for the whole season or 2) A more calm Hudson Card (similar to what we saw in the Kansas game)
  • Where would this game…or better yet, this season have been without Xavier Worthy. The true freshman might make an AP All-American team.
  • BJ Foster completely gave up on K-State’s QB’s 71 yard TD run. He was immediately pulled and never saw the field again for the entire game. (Only took the coaching staff 12 games to figure that out)
  • The Longhorn offensive line looked much improved. Continuity is key and I believe in the future of this position group with another year of Coach Flood.
