Raise your hand if you’re surprised by this:
1. 234 of Nick Chubb’s (RB, Georgia) 302 yards have come after contact
Much has been made of Chubb’s devastating knee injury last October. Through two games, he seems to be fully recovered. Chubb leads the country with 234 yards after contact. Only 13 running backs in the country have more total yards than Chubb has after contact. One of the reasons for the large percentage of yards after contact is Georgia’s inability to run block – ranked 118th through the first two weeks. If the Bulldogs offensive line can mesh as a unit, Chubb can run them into the college football playoff.
Yeah, me neither.
You know, it’s normally the back’s job to buy his linemen a nice dinner. If this keeps up, those guys need to pitch in and get Chubb a Bones gift card, or something.
