NU vs. MD by the numbers

Just like every week, I'm only considering stats from conference games.  The numbers are percentile rankings (such that 100 is the best rating you can get and 0 the worst).  No adjustment has been made to reflect strength of schedule differences.

I think I heard that too now that I think about it. Man we need to get that fixed.

We have had a few guys wide open that we have missed but in general we haven't thrown over the top a lot.  I believe that's a combination of poor pass protection, at times, limiting time in the pocket to throw and having limited receiver speed in general.
