South Carolina Football:  Ranking the Gamecock's Offensive Players

South Carolina's offense had numerous players who contributed in major ways to the success of the football team.  In fact, there were 16 players who scored or had a substantial impact on a game, but who actually had the most success this year?

Using a simple mathematical formula that converts production into points, the answer becomes clear. 

The formula is as follows:

One point per 100 yards passing

Two points per 100 yards rushing or receiving

One point per 100 yards on kick/punt returns

Six points per touchdown

Minus-three points per interception or fumble

It's simple.  Touchdowns are the most important offensive statistic, so they are worth the most points.

The passing discrepancy comes from the notion that passing yards seem to come easier for a variety of reasons.  If a quarterback had a 300-yard passing game and a running back had a 300-yard rushing day, who do you think had the more impressive day?

Obviously the running back.  The numbers were adjusted accordingly. 

Without further hesitation, here's the ranking of every contributing skill player on offense.
