    Anyone have any stats that tell us who our "most secure ball handler" is, taking into account both interceptions and fumbles?

    Least?

    Jeff Woody. You want my statistics to back it up? He's a truck.

    Least, when he played, would have probably been Jantz. A lot of good, but man he had a lot of awful turnovers.

    I'm not sure but I think he means who is the most secure ball handler out of the quarterbacks.

    I think in high school Jeff woody had 500+ carries without a single fumble. Fwiw...

    I call bull. How can he be the most secure ball handler when each one of his fouls result in a turnover or the other team shooting free throws? I won't even address the fact that he collects 5 fouls in a span of four minutes.

    He was good enough to land a starting spot vs. UConn. :pwink:

    Khaal actually made up a graph of every fumble last year that I can't find. The gist for QBs was Barnett fumbled a lot more than Jantz and lost only a few, Jantz fumbled like 5 times and lost 4. I'll keep looking.

    woody did lose a very costly fumble against nu in the fake extra point game. we were driving deep and he coughed it up. that may be his only one as a clone but it was bad time to happen

    I think his only other one was the intentional fumble at the end of a game last year, not sure who. Maybe Oklahoma.

    On the subject of bad time of unfortunate events, how about having a backup punter as the holder rather than one of the 4-5 other qbs that could put enough zip on pass to hit collin franklin in the numbers......

    Woody is by far the best ball handler, just watch the last drive of the oklahoma state game....He was Fort Knox...No one was getting that ball...

    Find those stats if you can. To be fair to both guys, I'm not sure if you include fumbles on read plays because none of us knows who was supposed to have the ball. Yes, its still a fumblutensil usually it's given to the QB, but the QB's rule for zone read is when in doubt give it. So, it could have been either guy. I would only look at actual fumbles when the QB or RB was carrying the ball.

    I can't find it in the enyclonepedia.com archives because I don't think he made a full post on it, he just put it in a thread here.

    Ok I think this is it.

    I thought there was a graph but it is very possible I am hallucinating.
