College Football Atlas 2018: the thousand-page preview

Eight pages per team (except Liberty, who still gets two). Over 1,000 pages cover to cover. Three times the size of Phil Steele–and a buck cheaper. (and mcillecesports.com is more accurate for three straight years, too)

In other words, the biggest college football preview ever created.

The Numbers

No weird, unintuitive acronyms for the numbers here, like you might see on other analytics sites. Want to know how a quarterback’s accuracy helped or hurt his team? You’ll find that under “Accuracy”. How good was a running back in the open field? That’s listed under (you guessed it) “Open Field”.

Defense and Special Teams aren’t forgotten, either. How often did passes targeting a certain defender fall incomplete? That percentage is called “Incomplete (%)”. You get the idea. There are numbers for all kinds of plays and scenarios, and they don’t require dictionaries to figure out.

On the Fence?

Ball State Sample Pages

(Why Ball State? Since I’m a statistician, I randomly selected an FBS team, and Ball State was the winner. Cardinals’ fans, I hope you still consider buying the whole preview after getting a free look at your team’s pages, because you still want to scout out your MAC West opponents, right?)
