Georgia Tech Offensive Production and Downs

The biggest change I noticed when watching the Kansas and UNC games was that GT was executing on 1st down with greater efficiency against North Carolina. And I hadn't really thought of a good way to display this visually until today. Here's a breakdown of play results by down for each 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th down against Kansas and UNC:

Against UNC, 61% of GT's 1st down plays were either 1st downs, touchdowns, or on pace for a first down (>3 yards per play). Against Kansas, this number was only 47%. This translates to an average of 2nd down and 7.5 yards to go against Kansas and a more manageable 2nd down and 6.3 yards to go against UNC. The difference is numerically minute but in playcalling the difference is huge. One offense is on pace for constant three and outs while the other is on pace for consistent 1st down conversions.
