Some Things You Might Not Know

There is not much to say after a loss like the one Georgia had on Saturday. Basically everything that needs to said has already been said. But there are always little bits of information that you might not know. That's where I come in. Here is a look at the game that just passed, the one ahead... ok, pretty much all season.


Once again here are the running backs divided by total touches.

Kregg Lumpkin -- 61 rushes, 347 yards, 2 TD... 6 receptions, 21 yards... 1 kickoff return, 11 yards... 68 total touches, 379 total yards, 2 total TD

Danny Ware -- 33 rushes, 188 yards, 2 TD... 8 receptions, 116 yards... 41 total touches, 304 total yards, 2 total TD

Thomas Brown -- 51 rushes, 181 yards, 1 TD... 6 receptions, 57 yards... 13 kickoff returns, 344 yards, 1 TD... 70 total touches, 582 total yards, 2 total TD

... Once again, here is Brannan Southerland... 23 total touches, 6 total TD

-----------------------------------------

Here is the pass distribution...

To the WR... 37 receptions (48.7%)

To the TE... 10 receptions (13.2%)

To the RB... 29 receptions (38.1%)

-----------------------------------------

Another interesting fact I found... here are sacks made so far...

By the DL... 8

By the LB... 3

By the DB... 5

The defensive backs have 5 sacks, but just 2 interceptions...

Quentin Moses is tied for 5th in sacks with one...

-----------------------------------------

Yes, Georgia gave up over 50 points... they have done it before. This is the 6th time, the Bulldogs have done it. The first time happening in 1900 vs North Carolina.

If you think it is bad that we allowed 51 points after allowing just 34 points in the first 5 games... think back to 1931 when Georgia allowed 60 in their season-ending game in 1931. The Bulldogs had allowed just 57 in the previous 9 games that season.

Georgia Tech has allowed 50 or more points... 11 times in their history.

-----------------------------------------

As you know, Thomas Brown returned a kickoff return 99 yards officially for a touchdown. The longest kickoff return Georgia has had was in 1978 when Lindsay Scott ran one 99 yards vs LSU.

Mikey Henderson ran another punt return for a touchdown. This one he went 86 yards. The longest punt return by a Bulldog went was a 100-yard gem in game vs Vanderbilt in 1952 by who else? Jimmy Campagna!

-----------------------------------------

Speaking of Vandy... Georgia plays them next in their homecoming game. This will be the 20th time, Georgia has played the Commodores in a homecoming game. Georgia's first homecoming game was in 1922, when Georgia played Vandy and the last time Georgia lost was in 1994, when Georgia played Vandy.

Other homecoming opponents from the past that may surprise you Florida State, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and Georgia Tech.

-----------------------------------------

I know most of you want another Vandy nugget... here's one...

Do you know Vanderbilt has defeated Georgia the same amount of times as football powerhouse Clemson has? And there total games is not much different either.

Vandy is 17-47-2 vs Georgia while Clemson is 17-41.

If you combine Ole Miss and Mississippi State... they have exactly 17 wins vs Georgia.

If you combine LSU and Arkansas, you get 17 wins, too.

You want ACC teams, not really, but here goes... if you combine North Carolina, Maryland, NC State, Virginia Tech and Duke, yes Duke... you have a combined 17 wins vs Georgia.
