Scoring the Baylor Game Part One (International Centre for Special Teams Research)

Using a scoring system that I borrowed from Falcon Blog I have scored UB's Special Teams for the Baylor game. I am going to work on an offensive and defensive scorecard for the coming games, might rip out a beta version tonight after "Last Bull In", but for now enjoy the special teams goodness.


First, The system (Per Falcon Blog)

The basic rule:

Scoring 6
Turnover/Blocked 3
Misc 2
Field position 1

Now for each type of play. (This is a work in progress, by the way!)

Field Goal:
50 FG Made +2
40+ Made +1
40- Missed -1
Blocked -3
Missed XP -2
TD Allowed -6

Punting
TD Allowed -6
Blocked -3
Less than 25 net -1
More than 45 net +1
Inside 10 +2
Inside 20 +1
Turnover +3
Fake Punt work +3
Fake Punt Fails -3

Kickoffs
Inside 20 +1
TD Allowed -6
Outside 35 -1
Over 50 -2
Turnover +3
Rec onside kick +3

Kickoff Return
Inside 20 -1 (Touchbacks excepted)
TD +6
Outside 35 +1
Outside 50 +2
Turnover -3
Losing onside kick -3

Punt Return
TD +6
Blocked +3
Less than 20 net +1 (If return was a factor)
More than 45 net -1 (If return was a factor)
Turnover -3
Fake Punt works -3
Fake Punt Fails +3

FG Defense
Blocked +3
TD +6

So how did UB's special teams stack up?

Field Goal Offense:
  • -1 for AJ's missed 40 yard field goal
Punting
  • Two punts inside the 10 yard line (4 points)
  • One punt inside the 20 yard line (1 point)
  • One punt under 25 net (-1 point)
Kickoffs
  • One returned kickoff inside the 20 (1 point)
Kickoff Returns
  • Three Returns outside the 35 (3 points)
Punt Returns
  • One opponents punt with a net of more than 45 (-1 point)
So a total of 6 points, mainly due to kickoff returns and great punting.
