Correcting Tempo

Until recently, Florida State was listed as playing at the slowest tempo in college football. This was because the model failed to account for the unofficial mercy rule being applied in the Savannah State game. In correcting that problem, I took the opportunity to reformulate the tempo metric. Like before, tempo estimates how quickly a team runs plays in real time, not game time, but now it is specifically the number of plays in 15 minutes of real time. For example, a tempo of 30 means that a team would run 30 plays every 15 actual minutes, or 2 plays a minute.
