Some Things You Might Not Know

During the 2005 season, Georgia players accounted for 2 300-yard passing games, 2 100-yard rushing games and 3 100-yard receiving games. The passing stats were done by D.J. Shockley. Thomas Brown and Danny Ware each reached 3 digits in running and Martrez Milner, Mohamed Massaquoi and Leonard Pope did it through receiving. What about in 2006? It is here along with other things you might not know.

Matthew Stafford looked good at times this season, but never reached the 300-yard passing mark. His high in a game occured against Mississippi State when he passed for 267. It was in the same game where Stafford also passed for career-highs in completions (20) and TD passes (2). The freshman's best game for completion pct happened against Auburn when he threw for 70.0 percent (14-for-20).

Kregg Lumpkin had the only 2 100-yard attacks by a Bulldog this season. One happened against Ole Miss and the other against Auburn. In the Auburn game, Lumpkin had 21 rushing attempts, the most by a Georgia rusher.

Kenneth Harris was the only receiver to get 100-yard receiving yards in game. That game happened against the other Bulldogs... Mississippi State. Martrez Milner and Mohamed Massaquoi had the most receptions in a game by a Bulldog when each hauled in 6 in a game this season.

What about defense???

The most tackles in a game was by, no surprise Tony Taylor. The team MVP had 13 against Colorado. Jarvis Jackson's 11 against Tennessee was close.

No one can forget Tra Battle's 3 interceptions against Auburn although Brandon Cox would like to.

Two sacks was the most in a game by a Dawg this season. Charles Johnson did it twice and Quentin Moses and Ray Gant each did it once.


Switching gears from football to basketball. If you have seen a game this season, you will notice that the Bulldogs have been putting up 3 after 3 after 3 and a lot of the time, they have been going in. So far Georgia has connected on 41.7 percent of their 3-pointers. This is how that percentage compares to other seasons lately...

2006-07: 41.7
2005-06: 34.0
2004-05: 29.9
2003-04: 34.2
2002-03: 38.0
2001-02: 32.1
2000-01: 34.5

If you are wondering if the 41.7 would be a record for Georgia. It would be. The current record is 41.6, set by the 1989-90 team.


Here is a Lady Bulldog tid-bit. Although Andy Landers' team fell short to LSU on Sunday, earlier in this week the destroyed the Gators. The score was 52-23 at halftime which made me think, how many times have the Lady Bulldogs scored 100 in a game. They didn't do it in that game, but they have done it 56 times in the Andy Landers era... that is since the 1979-80 season.


OK, I will try a gymnastic stat. The last time the Gym Dogs have not finished in the top 3 in the nation was in 1995 when they finished 5th. They have finished in the top 3 in 18 of the last 20 seasons and under Suzanne Yoculan, Georgia has never finished outside the top 3 in the SEC... that is since the 1984 season.
