Creating 15 turnovers through
five four games is no joke, and can't solely be put at the feet of lesser competition. And what we're not able to see there is that in addition to 11 interceptions on the season, they've caused 11 fumbles, something Wes Rucker points out here ($) with a post on Dawgs247.
That's impressive. Tennessee was -6 in turnover margin last season, and through just a month's worth of games has nearly matched last season's takeaway total of 17. Even though that margin of +3 will go down further into SEC play unless the offense can improve dramatically, the message is clear: Georgia better protect the football (something it's done for the most part by the way, despite a -1 on the season). Because Jancek has turned around a downward trend for Butch Jones' first defense in Knoxville rather quickly.
