If Georgia fans can’t stomach delving further into Saturday’s debacle, that’s understandable. So we’ll just provide a few more stats from the game, then move on to … well, other stats that also aren’t so good. Plus a look at the next game, where the numbers are more hopeful for the Bulldogs.
Of course there were some good indicators for the Bulldogs heading into Saturday as well. Analytics aren’t everything, especially one-third of the way through a season. Anyway, on to some numbers:
MORE ON WHAT WENT WRONG SATURDAY:
Alabama’s margin of victory, making it the worst home loss in Mark Richt’s time at Georgia.
Georgia drives that went three-and-out and then punt, out of 18 total. Another drive was three plays then the end of the half, three others ended with a turnover.
Receptions by a Georgia tight end on Saturday. And none for fullbacks either. Nine of the completions were to receivers, and one each to Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.
Jake Coker’s yards-per-pass attempt on Saturday. Entering the game Alabama’s quarterbacks, mainly Coker, were only averaging 6.3 yards-per-attempt, which was 107th nationally.
Sacks by Georgia on Saturday, the first time it’s been held without one this season.
Sacks by Georgia the first two games of the season. Sacks in the three games since then: Two total.
Georgia turnovers yesterday. It had four combined over its first four games.
Nick Chubb’s yards-per-carry other than his 83-yard run. Chubb did become the 16th player since 2005 to rush for at least 100 on Alabama.
