Haven't seen any articles about this recently? Is it only newsworthy when they ****?

    Third and long is a difficult proposition for any team, not just Georgia. I'm more concerned about converting 3rd 2yds. - 7yds. Increase those odds and you'll do just fine. Over the last two weeks we've improved our third down conversion percentage.

    I know. Early in the season it was something that some dug up when they just had to have something negative to talk about.

    We stack up at 10th in the nation on 3rd down conversions:

    Didn’t find anything specific about 3rd & long.

    Random 3rd down stat:
    Georgia was 1 for 10 on third down conversions v. Tennessee in 2014 and won 35-32. Four TD drives that never faced a third down.

    We really have been awful on 3rd and long though. We showed against UF that well conceived and well executed plays can be successful in those situations. We had 3 situations against Kentucky similar to the situations where Fromm threw 3 tds on 3rd and long against The Lizards, we failed on all 3 because of poor execution.
