Who was that man, and what has he done with real Jonathan Crompton? - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF - Yahoo! Sports
To put Crompton's 310-yard, four-touchdown day against one of the SEC's (and therefore one of the nation's) most talented defenses, some perspective: Before last week's fourth-quarter rally against Auburn, Crompton had never topped 200 yards passing against an SEC defense; that was also the first time he'd thrown multiple touchdown passes (two) in a conference game. For his career, Crompton had completed slightly fewer than half his passes against SEC opponents, with more interceptions (8) than touchdowns (7) and a dismal 99.5 efficiency rating to solidify his name as the one most synonymous with contemporary college quarterbacking failure. His efficieny rating today? Two-hundred twelve, and that's with a Georgia interception return for touchdown off a flubbed reception that wasn't really the quarterback's fault.
