USF has averaged 6.67 penalties for 44.3 yards so far this year. The opponents are at 10 for 103.33 yards.

USF best year since they started I-A is 8.17 penalties for 71.33 yards in '05. The opponents previous worst was 9.82 for 82.09 in '01.

So far the Bulls have made a big improvement in penalty discipline this year.

yeah, great post... i've noticed that too.  Our team seems to be much more poised than in past years.  Just watching UCF give 15 yarder after 15 yarder brought back too many memories of how undisciplined we used to be.  Glad Jim has gotten that under control.

Yeah, of the 30 total opponent penalties for 310 yards for the year, UCiF accounted for almost half of that with 12 for 148.  ;D

New topic to bash this year is turnover diff. USF is at -4 with 3 INT and 3 lost fumbles vs 2 INT recovered and no recovered fumbles. In fact, according to the USF stats, USF opponents this year haven't put the ball on the ground yet.  >:(

True, but how was that turnover margin tonight?

+1

No INTs and 2 fumbles, but we got them back. Nate's big INT was huge. Without that KU miscue, we go to OT at best.

The USF average after the FIU debacle is 7 penalties for 46.50 yards. The honored opponents are at 10.00 for 93.75 yards.

USF is still at -4 turnover margin for the year, with a +0 for the FIU game.

The above post was after the Kansas game. This post is after the NC State game.

USF is now at a 7.60 for 57.20 penalty yards per game and the opponents are at 10.20 for 88.80 penalty yards per game.

So the penalty average for USF is trending up and the average for the opponents is slowly trending down due to fewer personal foul penalties by the opponents.

But the turnover margin is improving. There were no fumbles lost or interceptions by USF QBs and the defense collected 3 picks, so the turnover margin for the season is at -1. And the Bulls finally caused some fumbles (3), but could not get to any of them before NC State did. So things are looking up.

Great stat to look at...shows our Bulls have matured.  I'm optimistic this will transfer to how they handle the pressure of the spotlight down the stretch.
