Digging on cfbstats.com yesterday I stumbled across this stat, which I thought was neat/random/probably pointless. Of plays from scrimmage for SEC teams in 2011, only Trent Richardson had more plays of 50+ yards than State senior RB Vick Ballard. Richardson finished with 5, while Ballard (and Florida Gator Andre Dubose) finished with 4.
Now that I think back over the entire season, I do remember Ballard breaking off those runs. Picking through miniscule stats? Sure, but it's still neat to me. Especially when you consider the big play threats of the SEC such as Joe Adams, Alshon Jeffery, and many more. Here's the full list.
