It's a three step process.
1. List our called running plays.
2. Divide the number of runs we gained four yards, got a first down or a touchdown by the number of total called runs.
3. Have Huckleberry check your math.

Eight 'good' plays divided by seventeen called plays...carry the one...that's 47%. Our goal is 60% so we didn't reach our goal. My dvr failed to record the game so I'm going off memory. That's why we have Huckleberry.
I've thought about adding an additional step where I try to figure out why our running game isn't effective even by our coaches' standards. But...
