On 3rd down:
- 3rd and 1-3 yards -- 0 for 1
- 3rd and 4-6 yards -- 1 for 2
- 3rd and 7-9 yards -- 0 for 1
- 3rd and 10+ yards -- 2 for 4
But again, it's the long term that's interesting. It always comes back to the issue of why would any kid in their right mind ever want to play QB or WR for Johnson? Same for offensive tackles and defensive backs (who don't see a competent passing scheme in practice). So what happens when Nesbitt...their Heisman Candidate leaves?
But back to Johnson and Nesbitt. Consider these red zones
- Inside their own 20 yard line (regardless of down) Nesbitt is 1 for 1 passing.
- Inside the opponent's 20 yard line regardless of down, Nesbitt is 0-2 passing
Against UNC, he was 3 of 4 passing for the game for 76 yards and a TD. Outside of the UNC game, he's 6 of 21 for 124 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT against Kansas and SC State.
GT passing nationally rankings....
- 119th in attempts
- 120th in completions
- 120th in percentage
- 119th in yards
- 93rd in passing TDs
The stats are simply amazing. Where's my Heisman ballot?
