Georgia Plays Clemson in Four Weeks: Why Tajh Boyd will Struggle against Georgia’s Defense

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd has played in 34 career games.  In 28 of those games he has posted the following combined statistical passing line:

496 completions in 792 attempts for 6,774 yards, 64 TDs and 24 INTs.

Got all that?  Those numbers yield a total efficiency number of 155.08.

In his six other games he has compiled this statistical line:

122 completions in 197 attempts for 1,279 yards, 9 TDs and 4 INTs.

That generates a passer efficiency number of 127.48.

Is that spread significant?  Yes.  The first efficiency number would have ranked 16th in the country last season.  The second number would have ranked 73rd?

You know what my favorite part of this random data comparison is?  The six games in which Boyd was considerably less impressive are Boyd’s six career games against SEC defenses.

Georgia’s defense is still an SEC defense.

That’s all I got/
