I went to call up the national yards per play rankings to point out that, for all the hullabaloo about LSU’s dynamic offense, Georgia actually has the higher average, but in the process, found Oklahoma’s ridiculous average:
If you’re a defensive coordinator and you manage to prevent the Sooners from gaining a first down on any given play, you’ve got yourself a win. I know that’s not going to hold up over the course of a season — it won’t, right? — but even so, that’s insane.
Back to Georgia for a sec: the total rushing yardage and the total passing yardage figures are within 11 yards of each other. Balance achievement unlocked!
