Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

With six games in the books, and six more to go in the regular season, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have posted some pretty impressive numbers, and some dismal ones as well. It’s been literally an up and down season–starting with three straight wins and following it up with three straight losses–and those numbers are just the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s a look at some of the Jackets’ more interesting numbers in a kind of “she loves me…she loves me not” format.

215.5 – The number of passing yards the Yellow Jackets are giving up per game…that’s bad

117 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in passing yards per game in the nation…that’s bad.

95 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in kick/punt return yards in the nation…that’s bad.

77.8 – The Yellow Jackets 4th down conversion percentage…that’s good.

73 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in defensive sacks in the nation…that’s bad

62.5 – Harrison Butker’s field goal percentage…that’s bad.

53.3 – The Yellow Jackets’ 3rd down conversion percentage…that’s good.

50 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in points scored per game in the nation…that’s good.

44.7 – The number of yards in penalties the Yellow Jackets are giving up per game…that’s bad.

42.7 – Vad Lee’s completion percentage…that’s bad.

37 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in points given up per game in the nation…that’s good.

16 – The total number of passes defended the Yellow Jackets have this year…that’s bad.

10 – The number of penalties the Yellow Jackets had in the loss to BYU…that’s bad.

6 – Where the Yellow Jackets rank in rushing yards per game in the nation…that’s good.

4 – Where the Yellow Jackets sit in the ACC Coastal standings…that’s bad.

3 – The number of games the Yellow Jackets have won in the month of October in the past two seasons…that’s bad.

2.7 – The number of turnovers per game the Yellow Jackets have in their three losses…that’s bad

2 – The number of field goals (out of three) Butker has missed between 30-39 yards…that’s bad.

1 – The number of times the Yellow Jackets have had less than 400 yards of total offense in a game…that’s good.

0 – The number of wins the Yellow Jackets have against ranked opponents this year…that’s bad.

It’s safe to say that if this were a daisy…she would love me not.
