12 percent rule
University of Arkansas, Fayetteville offensive players said Tuesday that offensive coordinator Dan Enos has presented the team with a 12 percent rule. According to Enos, the Razorbacks have a good winning percentage when less than 12 percent of their offensive snaps include mistakes such as penalties, dropped passes, quarterback hits and turnovers.
“We have this system set up that involves sacks and drops and QB hits and missed assignments called the 12 percent rule,” tackle Colton Jackson said. “We’ve just got to stick to being under 12 percent on those mental errors.”
Said receiver Jordan Jones: “When we were under 12 percent, most of the time we won the game. So he’s stressing that a lot. When the ball hits the ground or somebody holds or is offside, the 12 percent rule is going to apply.”
