I think it’s interesting last night, during the Pitt/Cincy game the announcers said the Steelers were trying to get their QB into a rhythm throwing those 1-5 yard passes. That seems to be where our QB’s are most accurate.

I know you just can’t throw those passes all game, but it might be worth a lot of slants.

After the game with Arkansas TAMU is averaging 109.24 in passing efficiency defense, that’s also after playing Clemson on the road and Auburn. They’re also 17th in the nation in that stat.

If my math’s right, the Hogs threw for a passing efficiency against TAMU of 121.02, which is not bad (nor great, but a whole lot better than against lowly Portland State).

And, Knox didn’t play. I believe we’re seeing that when both Burks and Knox play (and they’re healthy) the Hog offense seems to move.

You can tell that both of them will be high draft picks. That’s the kind of player you need to win in the SEC. I think that O Grady and Boyd can play on Sunday too.
