Facts about UGA Run D

Aug 29, 2021, 5:03 PM

Fair that they contributed to these results, but maybe a little oddity of stats. Only 3 opponents in top 50, though they did hold each to under their season average.

Clemson for reference 153.1, ranked 73, 8

Not exactly a murderers row of total offense or rushing. Only 2 offenses in top ten were losses…

Opponent 2020 YPG 2020 Rnk. VsUGA. TO Rnk
Arkansas. 151.3. 76. 77. 64
Auburn. 162.5. 67. 39. 74
Tennessee 141.5. 83. -1. 102
Alabama. 183.6. 48. 147. 4
Kentucky. 195.9. 33. 138. 115
Florida. 131.2. 93. 97. 9
MS St. 43.9. 127. 22. 104
SC. 169.9. 60. 83. 96
Missouri. 135.2. 89. 22. 59
Vandy. 110.1. 115. Cancel. 109
Cincy 205.3. 26. 99. 27

Means very little because that was last year. Saturday's game will be a test of which team is able to impose their will on the either. If we can protect DJ and get even 125 yards rushing, we will be just fine.

You think Clemson finishing 11th in rushing offense in the ACC last year is relevant?

But 10th in Total Offense

Last time I looked, not every team had a washout reject QB like Pornstache Daniels and threw the ball as well as ran it.

So are Clemson's pathetic rushing stats from last year relevant or not?

Stats, like Recruiting National Championships etc. and it's cute and all, but Clemson's running game was as good as UGA's. Here are the stats:

Clemson Running 4.5 Yards per Carry on 364 Carries
Georgia Running 4.6 Yards per Carry on 380 Carries

Clemson Passing 9.1 Yards per Attempt on 484 Attempts
Georgia Passing 8.1 Yards per Attempt on 305 Attempts

Clemson Run / Pass Mix 41.4% / 58.6%
Georgia Run / Pass Mix 55.5% / 44.5%

So Clemson by design appears to have passed at about a 14% higher rate than Georgia and had essentially an equal running game looking at YPC while having a 1 Yard / Pass Attempt Advantage over Georgia. Also, Clemson scored an average of 5.2 TDs / Game while Georgia scored an average of 3.7 TDs / game.

Given these are the only stats we have right now, you can see why I don't buy Georgia as dominant in any offensive category. Also, backs excluding Etienne averaged 5.0 YPC on 140 of those carries. I think lil'ol Clemson will be just fine in this game. So yes they are relevant and I guess both teams are pathetic rushers.

Have to agree. ACC is pathetic.We should be much better in the run against that competition. Ran it decent against ND in the playoff, but were smoked by the buck nuts. We haven't been that much of a rushing team in a while.

Better bring the heat on offense and defense to beat ughey

I would add that most teams loaded up on Clemson’s run game to try and make them one dimensional, especially with Ross being out.

Yes…

It’s an indictment on how awful our OL was and probably still is because the Guards are the same. We had an historical RB and a 1st Rd pick…

You don’t find it insightful because it doesn’t favor your dogs. That’s convenient.

Point is all the talk of returning like of scrimmage, but clear that teams with overall heartbeat on offense either beat (Florida and Bama) or came close (Cincy). Florida and Clemson were pretty close together on both total and rushing and we saw how that game turned out. Often, the rushing stats are overstated because of sacks, to which Clemson gives up very few.

It’s a fair point that neither team is “the same” as they were last year, but it’s all you’ve got for those players that are returning. If anything, the LB losses at Georgia loom largest here

I believe that is correct, but I also believe that Clemson will improved the most on offense this season, than what we were last season!!!

I sure hope we are not the same rushing offense as last year. Our offensive line was embarrassing and if we did not have Trevor and DJ as passing quarterbacks that know how to win we may have lost four games last year. I think we should find a way to get 150+ yards on the ground and 300+ in the air and if our defense plays well for four quarters we should be fine.
