Week 5 DUSHEE

Duquesne Frog

249 views

To explain what happened to TCU in this week's poll, I'll ask all of you to go back into the repressed memories of the days after the Iowa State game last season and remember what happened prior to the release of the playoff seedings. Remember that coincident to our destruction of a mediocre-to-poor conference opponent, all of our best resume bullets took a hit: Oklahoma lost, Kansas State lost, Minnesota had lost the week before to a team that got destroyed by Ohio State that week. Things outside the control of the team all went in the wrong direction despite the team being decisively in control of the things it could.

So this week the Frogs drop from 9 to 16, despite curbstomping Texas. It wasn't because DUSHEE wasn't impressed with the performance against Texas ... it was. TCU's PD against Texas was 36.75, certainly putting it in the top 10 performances of the week.

It was what our prior opponents did that cost the Frogs this week. Minnesota was blanked by Northwestern 27-0, SMU was whipped by a middling ECU 49-23, and Tech was beaten by Baylor by 25 more points than TCU beat them, deflating TCU's point differential against Tech compared to what it was the week before.

Last week, DUSHEE calculated TCU with a PD of 17.50 and a YD of 224.06. Here are TCU's week-to-week scores as of this week:

Opp: Minn SMU Ttech Tex

PD: 1.50 4.67 13.67 36.75

YD: 169.25 84.33 235.67 151.50

So if you ignore the Texas game and look at the average PD and YD for the first three games, those numbers fell to PD = 6.61 and YD = 163.08 in the course of one week. The contribution of those games to our Score fell by 11 points and 80 yards because of their poor performances. Thankfully (for Frog fans) we did smoke Texas; if TCU had had a bye this week, we would have fallen down around 30th.

For reference, here are Tech and Baylor's week-to-week numbers:

Tech

UTEP Ark TCU Bay

32.00 18.00 19.67 16.00

141.67 223.75 61.33 406.50

Baylor

SMU Rice Ttech

26.00 40.00 47.00

273.67 576.67 103.67

The Tech game brought Baylor's YD down significantly; from 513.25 last week to 318.00 this week. And SMU also had a deleterious effect on Baylor's PD (not to mention Rice getting pounded 49-10 by Western Kentucky); the 43.75 they held last week would have fallen to 33.00 this week if we ignore the Tech performance this week.

Another feature I'll add to the weekly DUSHEE rankings are the top and bottom performances of the week based on DUSHEE score. Keep in mind that the DUSHEE score is based on the numbers as they are right now. If we were to go back and look at this week at the end of the season, the performances (and certainly the scores) might be different.

Top 3 Performances (Points and Total Yards in parentheses)

59.4: Oklahoma(44-427) vs. WVU(24-369)

50.9: Alabama (38-379) vs. UGa (10-299)

(The game I'd written down for #3 makes no sense so I have to go back and look at the data when I get home ... a correction to this post may be pending)

Bottom 3 Performances

-54.9: UCF(31-357) vs. Tulane(45-395)

-46.5: Fresno(7-89) vs. SDSU(21-409)

-45.5: Idaho(35-388) vs. Ark. St.(49-521)

And finally, the current conference rankings. The Big XII-II remains on top, although the gap closed. Note how far the MWC has fallen since the heady days of TCU, Utah, and BYU. Not even Boise can help.
