Ridiculous Campbell Stat


Recommended Posts

Jason Campbell is second in the NCAA averaging 10.02 yards per attempt, only behind Stephan Lefors's 10.24! That's in the 1999-2000 Kurt Warner range. How amazing is this? To put it in perspective, the top 5 all-time NCAA career leaders for YPA (minimum 900 attempts) are:

Ty Detmer, BYU - 9.82

Danny Weurfell, UF - 9.29

Jim McMahon, BYU - 9.00

Marvin Graves, Syracuse - 8.98

Donovan McNabb, Syracuse - 8.94

Campbell's career YPA is 8.28 (720 attempts). Unfortunately, for this statistic, 900 career attempts are pretty much only attainable for 3-4 year starters in QB-friendly systems. I would like to find a more comprehensive list with fewer necessary attempts.

I wish I could dig up an all-time SEC list with a more realistic number of attempts (700 or so) so that we could see where Jason ranks among the SEC single-season and career YPA leaders. Maybe StatTiger could help. :)

Campbell is having a great season so far. It looks like he has matured and has a great mixture of talented recievers and other players to pass the ball 2. One thing that I am wondering about is why he hasn't ran the ball really any at all. I thought I read where he was gonna run the ball a good bit this season. The only time he runs is when he has no other option. I would like to see him run it up the field a few plays every game. This would add something else to our playbook. Campbell has really turned out to be a great leader on this team. He makes great audibles at the line. Cox is going to be a great qb but I think campbell is better right now. He has the experience and the leadership to take this team a long way this season. I think were looking at anywhere from the capital one bowl to the orange bowl. Thinking back on last season. I think coach borges is doing a great job. He has added so much to our offense. I'm really glad he got the job.

That is an awesome statistic.  Very Impressive


I saw an article in the Montgomery paper yesterday that discussed Campbell's running or lack thereof. There was a play on Saturday in which Campbell could have tucked the ball and run, however, he stayed in the pocket for another second of two and completed a pass for fisrt down. I don't remember the details but Campbell is following Borges' philosophy which is something like "why run the ball for yards when you can throw it for miles".
