The DNJ just released an article about how involved Dwight Dasher is in MT's offense. It seems that Dasher touches the football more than any other player at the FBS level this season. Here are some excerpts from the article.
In terms of total offense, college football measures a player's use by his number of offensive touches, which is the combination of rushing attempts and pass attempts. Dasher, a dual-threat quarterback, has 227 offensive touches (72 rushes, 155 passes) in four games, the most of any player in FBS (I-A).
Dasher ranks seventh nationally in total offense with 1,279 yards (251 rushing, 1,028 passing). The top-90 in total offense in FBS are all quarterbacks because passing yards usually surpass rushing yards.
But Dasher's contributions trump all players because he is the quarterback in a pass-heavy offense, as well as being MTSU's primary rusher.
Dasher's 72 rushing attempts is the third-most of any quarterback in FBS and twice as many as any other MTSU player
