Pryor waited until the second half to make his bad reads, both on third downs in the third quarter.  On third and nine with 13:22 left, Pryor scrambles then throws deep to two Arkansas db's who drop the ball.  The pass was well short of Sanzenbacher.  The next series on third and two, Pryor throws to the middle of two defenders short to Saine, while Brown(?) the outside receiver to the top of the screen has the numbers to the sideline open against one man as he starts inside and then breaks outside.

Five inaccurate passes, four on deep throws and one short out to Sanzenbacher.  One ball thrown away to avoid a sack and an early pass batted as Pryor had his arm hit while attempting a pass. Then there was the dead on ball to the back shoulder of Posey for a touchdown to close the first half.

Pryor had one of his best running games of the year with 6 ypc on designed runs and 13 ypc scrambling.

The top two wide outs and Stoneburner split most of the action with one sweet play to Fragel thrown in.  Two catchable balls went uncaught without being called drops, one was Brown being tackled well before the ball got there the other was the screen to Herron that was thrown high to get over a rusher.

This next table is similar to what I think mgobrian is doing with his receiving chart but I am unable to find a link to his explanations so mine will have to do.  The first digit in the grade is from the receiver’s point of view, 4 easy to 1 impossible.  The second digit indicates the presence of the defender (1 there, 0 not there) at the time the ball hits the receiver’s hands.  When I say there, I mean close contact.

Therefore:

11        Bad pass, tight coverage. 

10        Bad pass, no defender to stop it

21        Really tough ball to catch and in tight coverage.  A catch on this means the receiver is saving his qb.

20        Really tough ball to catch, no coverage.

31        Ball outside the strike zone, tight coverage

30        Ball outside the strike zone, no coverage

41        Ball on the money, tight coverage

40        Ball on the money, no coverage

Posey made a great low catch coming back to the ball for the 20 completion.  One of the 21’s that wasn’t completed was the uncalled pass interference on Corey Brown.

This just gives catches/opportunities by receiver.

Really good stuff. Thanks.

Good stuff, but is the pass to Fragel not considered "dead on" and merely "catchable?" I just watched it again on YouTube and it looked to hit him right in stride, chest high at the top of Fragel's numbers.

Here's the play in all its awesomeness:

It was listed as catchable.  As I look at it for the 8th or 9th time it was probably deserving of a dead on designation.  Pryor has to catch a high snap, get a playfake in to bring the linebacker up then get the ball into the window between the lb and safety.  If the throw is late or behind Fragel it goes for 10 yards at best.  So even though the pass is completed 7 yards from the line of scrimmage, the manner in which Pryor delivers the ball makes it a 42 yard gain.

I'm not optimistic Pryor can build off of this performance, but I hope his senior season (with a 2-3 game suspension?) is as productive as Smith's was.  With a happier ending.
It sounds like his mind is in the right place at this time, let's hope it stays that way.

You could tell before the game he was ready to lay the wood to Arkansas. The look on his face when the cameras were focused on him on the sideline was a look of determination and "eff you NCAA and SEC". Dude was cold-blooded in the first half.
