Talkin Derp!

There are two tables after the jump. The first shows a per game basis comparison between Georgia's 2011season to date and 2010 (provided by www.cfbstats.com) for several offensive, defensive and special teams areas. They are sorted in descending order by the amount the Dawgs improved from 2010 to 2011 to date.

The second table shows what we will call Derp Plays. These are large mistakes by game and their effect on yardage and points allowed (or not scored). I calculate Derp has cost us almost nine points per game this year.

All thoughts, questions, and humorous derision welcome.
