Cranium Session: Bucks Rank 121st in Returning Manufacturing, City Meyer Retaining Columbus Home, and Jonathon Cooper Owned the Senior Bowl


I’ve never seen a better tweet in my life to reaffirm a commitment.

What is the 40 time of the stag? Because I think there could be some space in class 22 …

Word of the day: Intractable.

NEW FACES EVERYWHERE. The blessing and bane of college football is that every roster is completely reset every 2-4 years.

But the thing is, my team rakes in the top 5 classes like a suburban dad raking leaves on an October day. So I’ve never worried about a “year of rebuilding” in my life and I’m not going to stop now. Even if my team just returns 50 percent of its production.

My Returning Production Formula looks at the most predictive stats of key personnel – the numbers that have the greatest impact on improvement or regression from season to season. What percentage of the combined mileage of your QBs will return? Your offensive line snaps? Your defensive duels against the loss? The return of production is weighted according to what most correlates with the changes in SP + from year to year.

The weighting for the offensively recurring production formula changes from year to year as I get more data to play with. The current iteration is as follows:

Return of QB via yards: 29%
Return of the RB Rushing Yards: 5%
Return from WR / TE receiving centers: 34%
Return of orienteering snapshots: 33%

Defense is a little trickier. Units aren’t that well defined – teams play with three or four linemen, three or four linebackers, four or five defenders – but that’s roughly what goes into the defensive production count:

Return of devices: 56%
Returning tackles for loss: 6%
Return of bags: 7%
Return passports defended: 31%

The state of Ohio ranks 121st out of 127 teams on the return of production, which seems bad unless you replace a solid number of those players with five-star prospects.

I’m not going to pretend that rankings recruiting is an exact science. It is entirely possible that a five-star or high four-star recruit could turn out to be a failure. It happens all the time. That’s why you bring in several at each position!

COOPER TROOPER. In the first three quarters of the Senior Bowl, Jonathon Cooper had the same impact on statistics as I did. However, he also spent about as much time in the background as I did on my couch, and the football connoisseurs noticed.

Top rated defensive player in the Senior Bowl

1. Osa Odighizuwa, UCLA ED: 94.7
2. Jonathon Cooper, OSU ED: 92.8
3. Shaka Toney, Penn St ED: 89.6
4. Chauncey Golston, Iowa DT: 85.6
5. KJ Britt, Auburn LB: 84.4

However, thanks to a fourth-quarter monster, he didn’t go without status the entire game. He had 1.5 sacks and led the team with 1.5 tackles for the loss.

I base every horse chestnut on their noble multimillionaire quest, but I’m especially delighted to see Cooper blow up after basically having no junior season and almost no senior season either.

MUIRFIELD FOREVER. Urban Meyer may be on his way to Jacksonville, but that doesn’t mean he is Turn your back on Central Ohio.

While that means he’ll be traveling to Florida, the former Buckeyes coach told 10TV’s Dom Tiberi that he’s not leaving central Ohio entirely.

“We’ll keep a place here. At some point we could move, but keep a place here. Obviously, we’re very close to the Ohio State program, Gene Smith, Ryan Day, and my son-in-law Corey, and our grandchildren. I am Muirfield forever, “he said.

Urban is doing the reverse snowbird out here and is keeping a vacation home in Ohio while having a permanent residence in Jacksonville. I can’t say I would, but I can’t get over the rush.

WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE … Chase Young stacks up pretty damn well when you look at the overall stats for the past three years …

Most CFB QB pressures: ’18 -’20

Quincy Roche – 157
Tarron Jackson – 152
Carlos Basham – 141
Chase Young – 140
Victor Dimukeje – 139

… especially when you realize that he only played two of these three seasons and was banned from three games in his best season.
