Football is back, and my new and improved fancy spreadsheet and I are prepared to meticulously chart thousands of ultimately meaningless data points and attempt to trick you into thinking I have done something worthwhile.
Allow this to serve as a preview and a reference point for this year's Scouting the Aggies articles. I've only been doing this for a couple years, so I'm still refining my process, but this year I want to be a little more focused so that readers can know what to expect.
As I chart each play and then organize the data, I want to be able to answer a few questions for you each week:
- What kind of personnel and formations did A&M use on standard downs, 3rd downs, and short yardage plays?
- What kind of plays did A&M run in those situations?
- What did A&M have the most success with?
