2009 SEC Rushing Stats I know this was a part of the heated slider discussion regarding the run game so I thought I'd provide these as I was looking at them in my Phil Steele mag this morning. Given that the SEC is one of the toughest conferences defensively top to bottom, I figured this would be a good the best conference to use. Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Name School YPC Anthony Dixon MSU 5.4 Mark Ingram Ala 6.1 Ben Tate Aub 5.2 Montario Hardesty Tenn 4.8 Dexter McClutchen UM 6.5 Washaun Ealey UGA 5.7 Derrick Locke UK 4.7 Warren Norman VU 5.4 Caleb King UGA 5.2 Trent Richardson Ala 5.2 Jeff Demps UF 7.5 Onterio McCalebb Aub 5.4 Kenny Miles SC 5.4 Zac Stacy VU 4.5 ***Note: I've excluded anyone w/less than 99 carries. So, as you can see, even the Vanderbilt HBs averaged around 5 ypc in the SEC. These guys are no where near pro material and playing against superior competition and they still did this. So perhaps our idea of what YPC should be is a bit off. It's certainitly not like the traditional NFL ypc we're all probably used to of 4.5 being an extremely great season.
