Michael Elkon this morning has a minor quibble:
It drives me crazy that college stats count sacks against the rushing game as opposed to the passing game. This is one area in which college should mimic the NFL.
Maybe, but one difference I see between the college and pro games is that at the lower level, quarterbacks do a lot more, you know… running. If you’ve got a dual-threat quarterback who gets taken down for a loss while doing his dual-threat thing, there are times when it’s hard to tell whether he took the hit running or throwing. So with a rule change, either the stat keepers would have to divine the intent of the play and assign the loss accordingly, or you’d see some rushing losses attributed to passing yardage. I’m not sure how much of an improvement that would be over the present level of inaccuracy.
None of this is particularly earth shattering, but if you can’t nitpick on the Intertubes, where can you?
