By the Numbers Through Game 3

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

To help myself refocus on goals for this season, I went back and pulled in some of the basic stats for our games so far. I felt better right away.

While there's a few things there that aren't so positive (we take a LOT of penalties and our D needs to work on stopping the run) there's a LOT MORE to get excited about. Besides, all stats should take a good bump once Mergatroid Skittle joins the lineup later this season.

  • We've just crossed 1000 passing yards. In our 3rd game.
  • We've out-converted opponents on 3rd downs by 26-10. Our conversion ratio is 61%. For comparison, the best team in the NFL is Cincinnati, who is converting 63% of their 3rd downs.
  • Our Yds/Run took a dip against EKU, a hard ground-pounding team, but bounced back better than ever against UK. That includes all those 1st and 2nd quarter go-nowhere runs that I was griping about. I'll shut-up about that now. We're averaging 5.9 yards / carry which puts us even with Oakland...who's leading the NFL.
  • In three games, we've managed to hold the ball for a full 22:10 longer than our opponents. That's an extra quarter and a half we've had. We put the extra time to good use by outscoring our opponents in three games by 93 points.

Not too shabby. Teddy Touchdown, what do you think?
