2011 Big East Positive Impact Factor: Week Eleven

On the field last week, Cincinnati lost Zach Collaros and their first Big East game and South Florida won their first Big East game. Munchie Legaux fill in for Collaros against West Virginia and turned in a respectable 43.9 Positive Impact Factor (what's this?). If the Bearcats are going to hang on to their Big East lead, they'll need him to play at least that well against Rutgers #1 ranked Big East PIF defense. Now we turn to the updated standings:

2011 Big East Positive Impact Factor: Week Eleven
Rank Quarterback Team Touches Total TD Neg Play XNeg Play XPos Play PIF
1. B.J. Daniels South Florida 417 17 33.6 13.5 4.1 57
2. Ryan Nassib Syracuse 393 22 38.7 13.3 5.6 53.6
3. Zach Collaros Cincinnati 319 22 33.2 23.2 6.9 50.4
4. Teddy Bridgewater Louisville 267 10 34.8 23.2 3.7 45.7
5. Tino Sunseri Pittsburgh 407 13 38.3 21.8 3.2 43
6. Chas Dodd Rutgers 184 9 47.3 15.2 4.9 42.4
7. Geno Smith West Virginia 456 25 39.5 27.2 5.5 38.7
8. Johnny McEntee Connecticut 284 9 52.1 27.5 3.2 23.5
9. Gary Nova Rutgers 224 9 52.7 42.6 4 8.8

Welcome Chas Dodd back to the standings. Dodd only had a 27.9 PIF against Army but Rutgers still won against the Black Knights. Dodd's ability to produce touchdowns on nearly 5% of his touches without the turnovers of Gary Nova should keep him in the starting spot. Collaros is out for the rest of the regular season so it will now likely be a two-man race between B.J. Daniels and Ryan Nassib for first in the standings...if only their teams could say that. Geno Smith made a big move toward the top half of the standings with a PIF of 63 in a win over Cincinnati. Tino Sunseri continues to play better and put up a 80.6 PIF against Louisville in a win this past week.

Now for the defenses:

2011 Big East Defensive Positive Impact Factor
Rank Team Touches Total TD Neg Play XNeg Play XPos Play PIF
1. Rutgers 375 10 43.2 31.4 2.7 28.1
2. Cincinnati 404 15 38.4 36.5 3.7 28.9
3. South Florida 405 16 44 26.2 4 33.8
4. West Virginia 387 14 40.6 29.1 3.6 34
5. Connecticut 398 17 40.7 26.5 4.3 37.1
6. Syracuse 452 21 36.3 21.3 4.6 47.1
7. Louisville 388 16 37.7 14.9 4.1 51.8
8. Pittsburgh 443 15 40.6 10.5 3.4 52.2

 

The race in the defensive standings is heating up as the season wraps up. Rutgers' big lead over Cincinnati is now paper thin. Interestingly enough, the two teams play Saturday. Dodd looks to be the starter again while Legaux will make his first collegiate start against the league's hardest team for a QB to score on. Louisville is looking to be bowl eligible on Saturday when they play UConn. Teddy Bridgewater might score on the Huskies' defense but maybe not without at least 1 turnover. South Florida isn't going anywhere in the conference this year but could help the league's battered image with a win over Miami on Saturday. Jacory Harris comes into the game having his best PIF season at Miami with a 53.9. Can the Bulls stop Harris who has only six turnovers and has produced a TD on 7.1% of his touches this year?
