* "Average Length of Regulation Game" -- We needed this calculation for last season.
Whatever humor this "statistic" once might have had is long gone. Now we keep it here just to be consistent.(Don't bother looking for it next year.)

Disclaimer / Note / Comment

The grade-point averages (GPA) shown in the table reflect the letter-grade votes recorded by visitors to the PennLive Web site who chose to participate in the poll for each game. The grades you see are their collective judgment.

Above you can see the number of voters for each game and the average for the season. (For the 2005 season the average number of voters was a little under 1,000.)

The far right-hand column shows a computed season average GPA for each team unit. For example, for the complete season, the linebackers had the best grade of all the team units at 3.34.

(NOTE: You don't get the units' average by adding across the columns and dividing by the number of games; it's all the "A" votes times 4, plus the "B" votes times 3, etc., divided by the season's count of all the votes for that unit.)

And finally: Yes, we do know how to make fancier Web pages. The so-called "design" of this page aims for "Classic Penn State Plain".
