This table ought to be self-explanatory except the last column.  The last column is the cumulative percentage total of plays in ascending order.  For example 33% of Tech's total offensive plays were either incompletions or turnovers ... that's not good. 

Analysis: 

Tech passed 66% of time and ran 33%.  Total passing yards: 158   Total running yards excluding sacks: 44  Tech had a total of 11 first downs, but only 8 of them were generated by the offense.  The other three were given to us through penalties.  

But here is the number that really jumped out at me.  Look up in the 0-4 yards category and shift your eyes over to the third column.  70% of all offensive plays gained less than 4 yards.  This percentage does include turnovers.  No wonder why the offense only scored 7 points.  Or to put it another way, Tech only gained 5 or more yards 15 times during the game.  

Since I have never done this type of analysis before I have no historical data to compare it to, but it does suggest a total meltdown.  Rather than blame Potts, OL, the splits, OC, etc. the data suggests that there was a complete system malfunction.  It seems to me that staff did not get these young men ready to play, nor were they ready to call the game, nor did the players execute while in the game.   UT's defense is not that dominate.  

We have 8 out of 11 returning starters from the #4 offense in the country last year.  This suggests that the players have the experience and the talent to play at a higher level.  If Tech only had 3 starters returning, then a performance like this is understandable, but with this type of experience and talent this performance is inexcusable. 

There are days I wish that I had a 911 Turbo.  I could certainly handle driving it in town and going down the highway at 80, but I do not have the skill or experience to open it up and run it to its full capabilities.  I am wondering if this applies to our current staff.  Leach had the skill and experience to red line this offense, often times with a flip of the switch, while NB and his staff seems like they are taking it for a spin in a 35 mph zone.   

Oh, one more thing.  The HC stated that they want to run 80 offensive plays each game.  Saturday they ran 54.
