As an example of the stupendousness of their stats, did you know?
In 2005, Michigan's opponents had 22 rushing attempts on 3rd down and 1-3 yards to go and picked up 82 yards and 17 first downs? In comparison, Ohio State's opponents had 30 rushes in that same situation and only picked up 57 yards and 16 first downs. Hmm, one defense that cannot stop the rush on 3rd and short and another that can. But then again, we all probably knew that anyway.
How about Michigan's offense in 3rd and short situations last year? They had 55 plays, 43 rushes and 12 passes (gee, who knew?). The rushes went for 240 yards and 31 first downs. The passes were 4/12 for 32 yards and only 3 first downs. Huh? How the hell did we only get 3 first downs passing all season in 3rd and short situations. Then again, how did we average nearly 6 yards a pop in rushing on 3rd and short?
The possibilities are endless with this website and I highly recommend it.
