College Football Total QBR: Offseason Changes

Who was the most efficient college quarterback in 2014?

ESPN recently published their offseason updates to college football Total QBR. After each season, they review actual game film to improve the data -- looking at things like yards through the air on a pass compared to yards after the catch.

While there were no major movers, Michigan State's Connor Cook jumped six spots into the top 10 due to the fact that 63% of his pass yards came through the air (rather than after the catch).

With very few reliable advanced metrics in college football, Total QBR is a great starting point. The biggest obstacle is the muddied and non-standardized play-by-play data across schools and the NCAA. Your top two quarterbacks in 2014? Marcus Mariota and J.T. Barrett.
