I’m a numbers guy and enjoy interesting stats. Through four games, the University of Illinois is 3-1. In two of those victories, the offense was super slow to get started and had to have big fourth quarters to pull out the win. I know in those games, and in those quarters, Mikey Dudek has done really well. So I dived into the numbers a bit and came up with this:
In quarters where Dudek has caught a pass, the U of I has scored 104 points, or 79 percent of their total points so far this year. In quarters where Dudek has not caught a pass, they’ve scored just 27 points.
