FSU's 2010 offense one of the slowest (and best) in the country | Adjusted Pace (footballstudyhall.com)

Go ahead and bookmark footballstudyhall.com. "Here are the teams who were at least one standard deviation removed from the average pace. First the slower ones; 23 teams played at a pace demonstrably slower than most. There are, as would be expected, good and bad offenses in this group. This is a stat based on personality and philosophy, not quality. Minus-1 Std. Dev.: Akron, Boston College, California, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Hawaii, Iowa, Kent State, Marshall, Maryland, Memphis, Michigan State, Ohio, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, San Jose State, South Florida, Syracuse, Temple, Tennessee, UNLV, Utah, Wyoming." This is interesting, because I wouldn't classify Jimbo and Coley's offense as prodding. But they are meticulous and content for numerous first down conversions (15th in 3rd down conversions %) on sustained drives. I wonder how much of the slower pace was intentional in trying to minimize the number of defensive snaps for his young '10 defense. Also, Oklahoma's pace was by far the fastest. Yes, faster than Auburn and Oregon.
