It’s when you break that down that it gets a little interesting. In 2012, Georgia led the nation in yards per passing attempt, at 10.0 ypa.
Last season, Georgia’s 8.9 ypa was good for eleventh nationally. “Aaron Murray threw past 20 yards only 9.6% of the time. His throws were focused more on the shorter zones, hitting the 6-10 yard range 23% of the time compared to an average 16.6%.”
Either Murray developed a noodle arm, or his game was affected by all the injuries to his receiving corps. Which do you think?
