That is, anything except score any points in the game’s final 24 minutes…or actually win the damn football game. According to Taylor Martinez, beholder of the NCAA’s absolute worst nickname in “T-Magic,” the defenses in the SEC are rather pedestrian, or as he puts it, “I think the Big Ten, talent-wise, is a lot better, and the defenses in the Big Ten are better than SEC defenses.”
That’s low, Taylor. With one foot in his mouth, he puts the other up his ass with this comment:
“This was supposed to be one of the top defenses in the SEC, and we pretty much did anything we wanted against them.”
One question I’d like to ask Martinez is why they didn’t “want” to score enough points to win the game.
Aside from being completely asinine, it’s statistically inaccurate as well. Georgia ranks sixth in conference in total defense. Furthermore, “The 5.6 yards gained per-play by the Huskers was their fourth-worst mark of the season, and two of the three lower numbers were in blowouts vs. offense-deficient opponents (Minnesota and a Michigan team playing third-stringer Russell Bellomy at quarterback) where Nebraska took its proverbial foot off the pedal.”
Give that poor kid a mulligan.
