ND Football Stats & Analytics' Jack Concannon PlayAction Podcast

    • Football

Jack Concannon of Notre Dame Football Stats & Analytics (@ND_FB_Analytics) joins the show to talk about the Irish's season so far, the quarterback position, playcalling, defense, Virginia Tech & more.

1:10: Concannon explains the goal of the Analytical movement in football; why their metrics give a better picture of success than traditional stats and how the "advanced" stats aren't overly complicated.

2:22: Concannon explains what EPA (Expected Points Added) is and why it's such a telling metric.

4:40: Concannon offers his thoughts on the Drew Pyne vs Jack Coan quarterback debate.

7:55: Concannon talks about what he's seen from Notre Dame's offense and why he believes play-calling will be even more important than the quarterback decision moving forward.

10:41: Concannon talks about the usage of Irish freshman QB Tyler Buchner early in the season and why that worked better against Toledo than Cincinnati.

12:17: Concannon talks about the Irish defense and why it's been successful since the opener against Florida State.

14:11: Concannon talks about Virginia Tech's weaknesses and explains why those make the Hokies a good matchup for Notre Dame.
