    Re: Burnt Orange Preview

    Talked to the UT athletic director last night. They are very focused on winning the first game against us. The last two seasons they opened with losses to a really mediocre Maryland team. This year if they beat us, they get to host ESPN game day the 2nd week against LSU. He and Skip are apparently buddies. He said all this before he knew I was a Tech grad. Really strong AD.

    No idea where the author got his numbers from.

    Maybe take 5 seconds to google a stat that doesn't sound right before getting ticked off?
    It's from S&P+ which is what the SB Nation blogs tend to use (I'm not sure if that will continue with Bill Connelly at ESPN now).

    It's more of an efficiency rating than the traditional yards/game stat. He factors things like rate of play and opponent and I think to some degree even down and distance.
