WR Catch Percentages

In response to my post on UT's offensive stats this morning, rblakeh asked: what do the receiver catch rates look like?  Here they are:

Receiver_catch_rates_medium
 

There's not a whole lot to say because context is so important here.  An incompletion could be the fault of the receiver, of the QB, or of both.  Or it could be tipped.  Or intercepted.  You get the idea.  Still:

  • RBs usually have higher completion percentages due to things like screen passes and passes to the flat.  They're easier to catch.
  • 10 passes did not have intended targets listed in the NCAA stats, and are noted above under "?".
  • I went ahead and included the QB sacks since they occurred on pass plays.  This means that the only pass plays I don't have listed are QB scrambles.  But hey, that would have been a lot of effort.
  • This does include Gerald Jones's pass attempts.
  • Cooper is quietly having a nice season as a fullback.
  • Jones and Warren have the most eye-catching negatives there.  Any thoughts on that?  Are they the targets of INTs, bad passes, etc.?  Or are they butterfingers?
  • Sorta ditto for Rogers, but a slightly smaller sample size than Warren - just enough to make me skittish about drawing conclusions.
