Checking over the comparative stats for Saturday that the AJ-C posted, one thing in particular jumped out at me.
1. Northern Illinois, 3.83 per game
T-105. Georgia, 1,55 per game
T-112. Georgia Tech 1.45 per game
1. Miami, Fla., 10.2 per game
124. Georgia Tech, 4.1
125. Georgia 3.9
Neither of the defensive fronts is good at generating pressure, but you tell me which side benefits the most from that, the offense with the quarterback who’s fourth in the country in passer rating, or the one with a quarterback who would rank 85th if he had sufficient attempts to qualify?
If you want more specifics, here’s Fromm’s numbers throwing from a clean pocket before the LSU game…
… and here’s what Fromm faced in Baton Rouge.
Needless to say, that ain’t happening Saturday. I’ll take my chances.
