Georgia Tech's Stats Turning Into One Big Bummer

SBNation.com's Bill Connelly reassesses the seaworthiness of each conference's vessels, finding the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to be taking on entirely too much water:

Down: Georgia Tech (Projected: Ga. Tech +2.3 | Actual: Miami +17). This has been a slow-motion collapse for the Yellow Jackets, who have seen their total yardage fall from 768, to 496, to 413, to 386, to 296, to 211 in the last month or so. In his first four games, Tevin Washington averaged 19.5 yards per pass; in his next four, he averaged 6.3. Yes, the competition has improved, but ... not this much. Opponents alone do not account for a fade this large. Against Miami, Tech lost, 24-7, despite allowing just 262 yards to the Hurricanes. But they averaged 3.4 yards per play and turned the ball over three times. They have run off the rails; Stephen Hill, an All-American after the first month of the season, caught one of the four passes thrown his way and gained nine whole yards. The passing game has disappeared, and the Yellow Jackets are now right back to where they were last November: completely lacking in ways to peel opponents out of the box.
