Statistical Comparison of 2013 NCAA Receiving Yardage Leaders

I looked into the statistics for the top two in receiving yardage in 2013 college football, Davante Adams (1719 yards) and Brandin Cooks (1730 yards). Beyond the normal statistics, I focused on a few other things, namely their 3rd down production, 3rd & long production, their most productive quarter & down, their red zone production, and the distribution of their statistics if winning/losing/tied. I made sure to put their general stats (Yards, TDs, Receptions, 1st Downs) in context by using their respective teams' receiving statistics as a measuring stick. 2012 statistics are also included, as well as a 2012/2013 total.

Unfortunately, I'm a dope and had to cut the side-by-side comparison out, which definitely takes away from some of the usefulness of these charts, but with the magic of MS Paint, you won't need to click links to see the pictures now. I've got some half-baked analysis, but I'm to be truthful, I'm really more interested to see how the masses use the numbers I'm providing.

If these turn out to be useful, I'll take the time to crank some more out.
