Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

The long touchdown pass from Connor Shaw to Damiere Byrd on the first play of the second quarter gained 76 yards. South Carolina's other 25 pass attempts (including sacks) gained 73. The Gamecocks' inefficiencies, especially in the passing game, have been damning this year. And on Saturday, they wasted a pretty decent defensive performance.

And goodness, what an awful fourth quarter from S.C.
