Crunching The Numbers: A Closer Look At Mass. Maritime’s Offense


We’ve officially reached the halfway point of the 2013 college football season, where did the time go?

It has been another eventful season filled with great moments, but it has also been an exciting year for Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s offense, which has been on a roll over the past few weeks.

Since last year, the Buccaneers have been a team to watch, not just on the field, but on paper, too. This year, they’re posting some impressive numbers, which we’ve highlighted below in our first “Crunching the Numbers” post.

* According to this week’s notes, Massachusetts Maritime’s offense registered 676 yards of total offense in their conference win against Western Connecticut. The Buccaneers are now 87 yards shy of the 3,000 mark for the season. They’re also on pace to shatter last season’s mark of 4,686 yards set in just nine contests.

* Over their last 13 contests, Massachusetts Maritime is one yard shy of 7,600 yards and is averaging 542.7 yards per contests.

* The Buccaneers have recorded at least 50 points or more in three of four contests this season. When they post 50 points or more, they’re 2-1. When they don’t record 50 points, they’re 1-1.

* Over the last three weeks, the Buccaneers have run 309 plays, an average of 25.75 per quarter and 1.72 per minute. They recorded 121 plays against Worcester State earlier this season, an NCAA Division III record, along with 97 plays last weekend against Western Connecticut. In total, that’s 218 plays.

We’d like to thank Jim Seavey for providing us with these impressive offensive numbers. For more on the Buccaneers football team – HOP HERE
