The Texas Longhorns: Running Game Home Edition

Thanks to the Texas coaches, we can now calculate out how well (or not well) our running game does each week. And it doesn't take even take a degree from McNeese St or a decoder ring.

It's a three step process.

1. List our called running plays.
2. Divide the number of runs we gained four yards, got a first down or a touchdown by the number of total called runs.
3. Have Huckleberry check your math.

So here's our called run plays:

1
3
3
0
20 td
1
8
13 td
-2
8
4 first down
5
-2
0
2
5
6

Eight 'good' plays divided by seventeen called plays...carry the one...that's 47%. Our goal is 60% so we didn't reach our goal. My dvr failed to record the game so I'm going off memory. That's why we have Huckleberry.

I've thought about adding an additional step where I try to figure out why our running game isn't effective even by our coaches' standards. But...
