Stat of the day, courtesy of the keen insight of Mr. Tyler Estep:
|Team|| Passing Yards||Passing Attempts||NCAA Rank|
OK, so none of us figured that Georgia's secondary could make Johnathan Crompton look good last week, and he looked like a Heisman contender. So anything's possible.
But Larry Smith and the Commodores have 18 fewer passing yards this season than Georgia Tech, despite 98 more passing attempts. That's beyond Crompton. (In fact, can we start using the phrase "beyond Crompton" on a more regular basis? Ugh, the ratings for "Cougar Town" are beyond Crompton. Or, holy cow, the calories in this Hardees burger are beyond Crompton.)
So, the common sense theory is that Georgia's D gets a little break this week -- and maybe even another in a few weeks, considering Florida's passing attack has been far from stellar.
But here are Larry Smith's numbers for the season:
| W Carolina||153||55.6||1||0|
| Miss St||124||37.5||0||1|
| Ole Miss||69||37.0||1||1|
If Georgia's DBs make Smith look better than Rice did, that Florida game is going to get ugly.
