So far, one of the big stories of Georgia’s 2014 season is the huge reversal of fortunes on the turnover margin front.
… Georgia leads the nation in turnover margin, flipping the script from last season when it ranked a lowly 102nd in FBS in that category.
The Bulldogs are now plus-13 on the season.
“I’m very pleased with that,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “We work hard on it.”
Georgia has 17 turnovers gained and only four lost.
It’s the best they’ve done in the Richt era, but they still have a way to go on the all-time front.
Georgia had a plus-23 turnover margin on its way to the 1980 national championship, with its plus-2.09 ratio ranking among the top five single seasons in NCAA history.
That’s pretty incredible. I’d almost be willing to bet that stat makes Vince Dooley happier than anything else that happened that season.
