John Pennington has a good post up today about how important turnover margin is to winning in the SEC.
49 conference games in 2010
12 times both teams had the same amount of turnovers
37 times one team won the turnover battle
In those 37 games, the team that won the turnover margin won 32 times.
That’s a 32-5 record in SEC games in 2010 for the teams that won the turnover battle.
Looking at Georgia’s performance in that category, you’ll find a consistent result. Georgia’s 2010 record in games in which it won the turnover battle was 6-1, which means the Dawgs didn’t win a single game this season when they didn’t finish in the black in turnover margin.
