Now, before you go there, consider this:

Now, not everything is rosy, that’s for sure. In fact, it’s a real feast or famine situation for Grantham. Pass defense is 11th in the conference. Georgia is 12th in opponents’ third-down conversion rate. The red zone conversion rate is brutal. And they’re dead last in creating turnovers.
So far, the bad has outweighed the good. They’ve got to get a handle on the last two negatives I’ve listed if they want to stabilize what’s going badly on defense. I’m not sure where that starts, but I will say it’s weird to see a defense that’s good with sacks doing so poorly forcing turnovers.
