Some 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...
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.
