12 per­cent rule

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

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.”
