Sad. Senseless. Like a deliberate pass out of bounds...on 4th down...

The number of fourth down conversion attempts per game has a clear negative correlation with winning percentage. That's not surprising given that teams don't tend to go for it on fourth down unless they're behind. Teams that spend a lot of time behind are usually bad, and that extra time being down leads to more fourth down conversion attempts. The conversions per game is still negative but a lot closer to zero, as good teams attempt fewer fourth down conversions but tend to be good at making them. How do we know that? Because conversion percentage is correlated quite positively with winning percentage. The better the team, unsurprisingly, the better chance it has to succeed on fourth down.A good seasoned quarterback certainly helps coaches have the confidence to go for it. A bullish line would help as well. But it's also worth a thought that Richt has shown some swagger this off season. Of course, not taking any crap from a fan on a road tour stop is a lot different than deciding you're gonna step on the head rooster's throat. But it could lead to another spectacular state trooper fist bump.*
"I'll say hypothetically I don't have any more of my Florida jerseys," Crowder said Sunday. "There were some Jacksonville businessmen that really hypothetically liked my play."I'll follow his lead and say hypothetically that I think did a good job of networking back then...assuming these Jacksonville businessmen weren't yet of Facebook in 2004.
Columbus police interviews conducted during an investigation of the Parks and Recreation Department reveal that director Tony Adams and top lieutenant Herman Porter may have jeopardized the amateur status of two University of Georgia athletes who played on the Georgia Blazers, their city-funded, Nike-sponsored AAU basketball team.The report goes on to say that UGA Compliance Director Eric Baumgartner has not heard or received anything form the NCAA at this point. Jones is expected to make a large impact in his first season at Georgia and Caldwell-Pope is Coach Fox's prize recruit, also much needed after the early departures this Spring.Police records show that an unauthorized bank account controlled by Adams and Porter was used to pay for flights to and from Los Angeles for Jarvis Jones, a two-sport star at Carver High School who played football for one season at the University of Southern California, and for the cell phone bill of the mother of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a five-star shooting guard from Greenville High School.
