Third down conversions

Posted by cuorange on October 22, 2009

A 3 for 10 day against Wake Forest was one of the few downers from this past week and the Tigers rank 101st of 120 teams at 32.29% (31 for 96).  On 4 of the 5 touchdown drives the Tigers never faced a third down.  On the one touchdown drive the Tigers did face a third down, Parker found TE Michael Palmer for a first down and then Parker ran for a first down on another third down.
 
Rendrick Taylor fails again on third and short.  Time to give that up.

Year 3rd and 1-3 3rd and 4-6 3rd and 7-10 3rd and 11 or more
