Breaking down how negative plays have killed Florida offense

  • OK, so this is a lengthy post with a lot of data in it, but the basic premise is that Florida's offense is actually pretty functional when it avoids stupid negative-yardage plays, particularly penalties. Here are some numbers on that, and you can clearly see the team puts together longer, more productive drives when it's not shooting itself in the foot.

    FACTS AND FIGURES

    * Florida has had 42 drives without a play for negative yardage.
    * Florida has had 76 drives with at least one play for negative yardage.
    * The above two stats do not include end-of-game or -half situations.
    * Florida has scored on 47.6 percent of its drives without a negative-yardage play.
    * Florida has scored on just 32.9 percent of its drives with at least one negative-yardage play.
    * Florida has had 18 drives with two negative plays in them.
    * Florida has had 4 drives with three negative plays in them.
    * Florida has had 1 drive with four negative plays in it.

    Here is the breakdown of Drives based on whether there was a negative play or not.

    42 No Negative Play Drives - 14 TD, 6 FG, 18 punts, 2 fumbles, 1 interception, 1 missed FG (2.76 points per drive)

    76 Negative Play Drives - 12 TD, 13 FG, 6 fumbles, 2 interceptions, 2 Turnovers on Downs, 2 Blocked FG, 1 Missed FG, 38 punts (1.62 points per drive)
