Havoc Rate is the new QBR.

Just sayin’.

Speaking of QBR, where’s the Matt Landers’ chatter?  His destroyed the other quarterbacks’ yesterday.

Explosive

Interesting chart here.

For what it’s worth, last season Georgia was tenth nationally in offensive plays that gained 20+ yards.  That’s good, but, even better, it was third nationally in defensive plays that gained 20+ yards.

Oh, he will be missed.

Forget about the disappointing 40-yard time.  Isaac Nauta will always have a special place in Kirby Smart’s heart for one simple reason.

Job One, baby.

2015, the year we don’t need to revisit S&P+

Bill Connelly tells us what we instinctively knew:  Georgia fell fifteen spots in S&P+ from 2014 to 2015 and it all came from the transition away from Bobo to Schottenheimer.

Georgia’s 2014 offensive S&P+ ranking was sixth.  With the switch in offensive coordinators, that tumbled all the way to 70th.

Defensive S&P+ rankings actually improved, from tenth to second.

Makes for an interesting debate over whether Martinez or Schottenheimer was the worse coordinator under Richt.  Sure, that’s a helluva one-season drop, but Martinez does have duration working in his favor.

The model of a modern SEC cornerback

This is what a lockdown corner looks like.

I’ve seen some chatter out there about Georgia’s secondary being even better in the wake of Baker’s departure, and while anything’s possible, those are some mighty big shoes to fill.  I like what Eric Stokes brings to the table, but two straight seasons without getting beat in the endzone?  Let’s see it.

The continuing adventures of if it ain’t broke…

You know, it’s funny.  As much as plenty of us keep grousing about Georgia’s offensive shortcomings, it sure seems like it keeps coming up in favorable mention with a lot of powerhouse offenses.

Maybe Kirby’s got this.

“… the trip to Georgia might be out of reach, to put it politely…”

Georgia faces Arkansas State in the third game of the 2019 season.  If you don’t know much about the Red Wolves, or at least not as much as you’d like to, Bill Connelly’s got you covered with his 2019 preview of that program.

The selfish tl;dr version?  Bill projects Arkansas State as an eight-win team that’s a tick more than a 32-point underdog with a 3% win expectation against the Dawgs.
