Below are the updated Shewhart charts showing FSU's defensive performance to date:
Opposition Offensive YPP for 2011:
Since the Wake Forest game, the FSU D has been facing offenses of similar quality except Miami. Duke's normal offensive YPP ranges from 4.3-5.9 and and Maryland's normal offensive YPP ranges from 4.4-6.1. The normal offensive YPP range for NCSt. is from 4.0-7.0 YPP and BC's normal range is from 3.8-5.7 YPP. In all cases, the opposing offenses had their worst (or 2nd worst) day of the year. Miami; however, is a different story in terms of how FSU performed. You can see that the normal range of performance for Miami is 5.3-7.5 YPP which is second only to Oklahoma(5.8-7.6 YPP) in terms of performance. FSU had their worst defensive performance of the year (5.47 YPP) against the Canes and did not take Miami out of their normal performance range at all.
FSU Defensive YPP for 2007-2011:
At this point we can definitely say that FSU's defense has improved over the 2010 version of our D and is the best defense we've had in the last five seasons. At this point, our D can expect to give up between 3.5 and 4.9 YPP ( 4.2 YPP average) on a normal day. The 2010 defense could expect to give up between 4.1-5.7 YPP on a normal day. What this is saying is that an average day this year would have been a great day last year in terms of YPP. The other thing to notice about this year's performance is that the we should have lost the Miami game based on DYPP. All of the other games where our DYPP > 4.7 YPP we have lost.
