Brian Cook at MGoBlog has taken the raw data for all third down conversions in Div I-A Football from 2005 and he has: averaged them by distance (ie 3rd and 1 vs. 3rd and 10) for each team's offense and defense.
Basically, you select your team's name from the Drop Down Menu, then you select offense or defensive stats. Green is good. The team in question outperformed the national average in a positive manner. Red is bad.
- We were in line with the national averages except for 3rd and 12 or longer. We outperformed the average there.
- We did poorly on third and short.
Interestingly, check out Auburn's stats. They were absolutely incredible on 3rd down from almost any distance on offense or defense. Also, check out the defenses from Ohio State, Oklahoma, Miami and FSU. Very impressive.
Another jaw dropper is to see how poorly Texas A&M's offense and defense performed.
