Some stats for a 3-7 team

I saw a post on Twitter after the Wisconsin game which showed that Nebraska has only led for ~10% of the game time in the 8 losses this year.  The game which NU led the most was Purdue.  For all of the talk that NU is "so close" to having a much better record, IMO this shows me that NU isn't as close as most fans think.  Consistently playing from behind is not a good recipe for success.

Has anyone ever considered you are what your record says you are?

 

There's a number of coaches out there that would likely come in and win 10 games next season.

 

But since we made the "right call" in saving a couple bucks, we'll most likely be stuck debating whether or not 5 wins next year will be enough for Frost to get a 6th year.

I took a quick look at how much we we have led in the 2nd half of the 8 losses

 

Michigan St lead for 4 mins

MIchigan lead for 7 mins

Purdue lead for 12 mins

Did not lead at all in Illinois, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio St, or Wisconsin (The Wisconsin game was the only one of these 5 that was ever tied)

 

So out of a total of 240 2nd half minutes, Nebraska was ahead for 23 minutes or 9.6%.

Not on here, but there are a LOT of people in other social media platforms saying that NU is "so close". A lot of deeper reviews into the numbers and game situations show that it's not as close as these "one score losses" show. 

Saying we are "close" does not equal "moral victory".  Someone can believe we are close and still be pissed off that we are losing.

Oh SP+ where have you gone?  The last we talked it was pre-season and hopes were abound of a successful season.  SP+ is the great forecaster as we know (like Carnac the Magnificent only with less personality) and the history pointed to a progressively better season.  3 Wins...

 

When conventional metrics do not provide the evidence one needs to support progress, we turn to alternative metrics such as SP+.  How much better does the fan base feel when the title of "Greatest 3 Win Team" is bestowed upon it?  For many we could point to the VL+ metrics (i.e. Vince Lombardi), "winning isn't everything, but it is the only thing" when it comes to football.  

 

Let's go find 4 assistant coaches willing to commit to a one year deal, conduct the one year charade which is 2022, and then proceed to transition.  We are competitive, but something is clearly missing when you amass a 5-19 record in one score games.  Undeniable at this stage.
