Well since we're posting data...turnover margin per game

Well, in the spirit of posting "just the facts" I'd like to present some data on turnover margin per game from 2004 through 2010. The top half of the table shows the some selected national percentile rankings, UGA's rankings, and the highest turnover margin numbers for the past several years.

The bottom half does the same thing but with change in turnover margin per game. UGA's 2.11 turnover per game improvement is (as you might expect) very unusual. Teams to have accomplished a larger positive swing than this since 2004 are:

2010 Miami of Ohio

2009 Wyoming

2008 Baylor

2008 Minnesota

2006 Rice

2005 Tulsa

2005 SMU

Out of 119 teams x 6 seasons = 714 or about 1% of the time.
