## Phil Steele must not be aware that Georgia's offense is inept. These numbers would certainly be different if he knew how terrible Georgia's offensive coaches actually are. ##
This past year the most effective offense surprisingly was Georgia led by QB Aaron Murray as they averaged 7.09 yards per play but they did rank just #102 in plays per game. Texas A&M led by Heisman winner Johnny Manziel was #2 at 7.08 ypp and also #1 in 3rd Dn conversions in which Manziel’s scrambling ability surely had much to do with their effectiveness. Marshall avg’d an astounding 90.6 plays per game ranking #1 in the NCAA in that category but they avg’d just 5.9 yds per play ranking #45. It was no shock that Oregon came in at #1 in plays per point running just 1.64 plays for every point scored. The median on offense is 5.71 yards per play and the lowest was Massachusetts, which averaged just 3.91 yards per play, which was significantly lower than Hawaii who was #123 at 4.26.
