Fozzy Whittaker has 4 TDs (3 rushing and 1 receiving), doubling his 2010 output and equaling his 2009 output.
Stats are for losers! Well, I'm an accountant, so sue me. With the bye week coming up, I thought it would be a good time to look at some statistical trends for the offense and see what it means for this team moving forward.
- translation: we're finally putting a talented back in the end zone. I believe all of the rushing scores are out of the Wildcat.
Our top 7 rushers by yardage are not QBs (Brown, Whittaker, Monroe, Bergeron, Johnson, Shipley, Goodwin, THEN Ash)
- translation: A rushing attack not dependent on a QB sounds good to me. Less shots for a primary play caller. A QB has had at least 100 carries and has been our #1 or #2 rusher every year since 2007.
Malcolm Brown had the most rushing yards by a RB (110 yards against UCLA) against an FBS school since Jamaal Charles in the 2007 Holiday Bowl against ASU.
- translation: Production by the RB position against a defense with talent on the field. Makes me feel a lot better heading into conference play.
DJ Grant has the most receiving yards in a season by a TE since Irby's hot start in 2008.
- translation: No more EBS. Production in the passing game for TEs. Grant has always had the talent, now healthy enough to produce.
We all knew what HarsinWhite would bring to the table schematically and with play-calling, but its nice to see the on-field product. The power rushing attack and liberal use of TEs have already yielded results we haven't seen in years. What are some of the trends you're excited about?
