Today’s stat that makes you go “hmmm…”

Not sure I would have expected this.

For two reasons:  one, I would have expected a higher correlation, and, two, that’s a decent sized decline.

Of course, small sample size warning applies here.  I’ll be curious to see how this plays out over the course of the season.

    I would be interested in knowing what the total turnovers were in that same time from 2015 to 2016. It seems like they are up in numbers and if so it could reduce the effect. But it may just be my perception.

    I wonder how the higher percentage of cupcake games in the early part of the season impacts this. Can part of the decline be due to cupcakes winning the turnover battle but still losing the game because “talent” over came sloppy play in more games than would normally occur if the teams were more evenly matched?

    UGA is the poster child of this when they can’t get any points off turnovers

    You can thank UGA for a big piece of this sample.
