Analyzing Florida in short

Florida has converted 84.6 percent (11/13) total opportunities with 3 yards or fewer to go. The Gators were 3 for 5 vs. Miami (Ohio) and 8 for 8 against South Florida.

Nine of those conversions came on the first try, two on the second attempt. The 11 conversions (eight by run, three by pass) took a total of 13 plays.

A defensive coordinator said, as a rough estimate, an average offense should convert about 70 percent of the shortyardage chances being discussed here. From that reference point, 84.6 percent is exceptional, though the Gators might have trouble maintaining that rate against better defenses.

The two failures were ugly and both came against Miami (Ohio). Florida could not convert from 2ndand3 and 4thand1. Those are on separate possessions. Read the clarification at the bottom of this entry if that's unclear.

Here's the rest of the data on shortyardage:

QB John Brantley went 5 for 6 for 14 yards and a touchdown.

The run plays averaged 7.2 yards per carry. Here how Florida distributed carries:

Moody is the team's biggest running back, so it's not surprising he has the most carries. He converted a second and fourth down. He also botched a second and fourth down with a pair of minus2yard carries, one of which was a fumble.

Demps' numbers seem to reflect his allworld speed. With more defenders in the box, common in shortyardage, Demps has a hard time getting past the line, but once he does, there isn't a lot of help on the back end to contain him.

which way Florida went on the 11 run plays:

The less yards to go, the more flexibility teams have in playcalling. However, they tend to be more predictable the closer they get to converting. That's the case with Florida, which passed 40 percent of the time with 3 yards to go. With 1 or 2 yards to go, the Gators ran 71 percent.

Florida's run plays with 3 yards to go averaged 8.3 yards per carry.

Secondandshort is one of the toughest downs for a defense to anticipate. It's often a great opportunity for teams to take a shot downfield. That's part of the reason Florida was able to www.nikekansascitychiefsstore.com/Authentic-Eric-Berry-Jersey average 8.7 yards per carry on those plays.

the red zone, the Gators are 4 for 4 converting with 3 yards or fewer. That's Authentic Eric Berry Jersey crucial.

How many tries it took Florida to convert when it Eric Berry Black Jersey moved with 3 yards on second, third and fourth downs:

Florida had five plays for zero or negative yardage: Moody's minus2yard run with a fumble, Moody's minus2yard run, Gillislee's 0yard run, a Brantley incomplete pass and a 0yard pass from Brantley to Omarius Hines.

Florida had five plays of 9+ yards, all runs: Rainey around left end for 15, Demps around right end for 10, Moody around left end for 9, Brown behind left guard for 13 and Demps with 26 up the middle.

[Just want to clarify how Women's Eric Berry Jersey this is calculated. Any time the team needs 3 yards or less to get a first down or touchdown counts as one opportunity. For example, the Gators had 2ndand3 against Miami and got stopped, resulting in 3rdand3, then picked up two yards, resulting in 4thand1. That counts as one opportunity, not three.]
