Thought this was very interesting and after looking at areas we need to improve the most in...we are stacked at this year.
In rushing offense we were 13th in SEC and 89th nationally
Net punting we were dead last at 14th in SEC and 77th nationally
In sacks allowed we were 12th in SEC and 102nd nationally
Now I know some of you are going to post a lot of the blame on Connor hangin on to the ball too long for the last stat of sacks allowed...but in my opinion...the rushing offense ranking as low as it did shows that it was not as much Connor as it was the OL. We were very young and inexperienced there last year and have so much more depth and talent and experience I can't wait to see what our RBs can do with them making better holes & with them giving our QBs more time! Also...with St Germain coming in & Hull in his 2nd year and improving...I think these stats will improve enough to be the difference in 1 or 2 games...which as we all know could possibly equate to an undefeated season!!!
First spring practice has me pumped...still a long ways til opening kick off...but one things for sure...IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE A GAMECOCK!!!
Also...a lil more interesting stats from last year...we were 3-2 when we didnt score first.
Also 3-2 when we commit more TO's (obvious stat)...
5-2 when we let opponents pass for more than 200 yds
And 4-2 when trailing in time of possession (another obvious stat)
