Bill Connelly’s advanced stats profile isn’t convinced Georgia turned a corner Saturday night. Take a look at the team’s percentile performance in its last four games:
- Vanderbilt: 28%
- Florida: 44%
- Kentucky: 46%
- Auburn: 44%
Not exactly the dramatic uptick you were expecting.
According to Bill’s numbers, the defense did play one of its best games of the season (duh), but the offense didn’t fare nearly as well. On the other hand, it was the worst showing of 2016 by Auburn’s offense, although, oddly enough, the Tigers’ defense actually scored out higher than Georgia’s did. I guess I need more time to process the information.
