In a follow up to the stats from CFBStats I posted yesterday, here is a comparative look at the top four Heisman candidates in the Heismanpundit Poll in various categories:
Sorted Pass Efficiency Ratings
First Half Passing
Second Half Passing
While the data is based on just three games (two in Moore’s case), I think a few interesting nuggets of data emerge. Namely, I think it’s remarkable how much Robinson has developed as a passer, as he places first or second in five of the nine categories. Also, the overall refinement of Mallett is a passer is clear as he does well in each and every category. I also find it noteworthy that Pryor’s worst showings are on third down and in the fourth quarter. And it is also surprising that Moore’s efficiency drops so much in the fourth quarter given his comeback drive against Virginia Tech.
We’ll have more comparative stat breakdowns as the season goes on.
