The Real Story of ACC officiating?

While looking at a recent article on SBN (HERE) about Penalties Per Team Per Game I wondered why in the hell do we not take a deeper look at the results?

Well here you go- Over 5 years UM and FSU are CLEAR outliers @ 1.767 and 1.588 St. Deviations from AVG. All the other teams are grouped pretty tightly in the +.75 to -1 range, and then BC comes in at -1.42 (must be nice)

This seems pretty glaring and would be even more relevant if someone would like to do the other big conferences for comparison (or perhaps if I'm bored again at work and/or this gets a good response I'll take it on). Final win/loss records per season might be fun to compare as well to see if there is an underdog bias.

So, how do you interpret this?

(I am counting the words and formulas from the table into final word count, if you don't like it then cry about it.)

Here is an ANOVA (Analysis of Varience) test:

Basically this tells us that with a 95% certainty, there is something influencing the penalties called for teams in the ACC
