The college average for recovering an onside kick is 24%

For Virginia defending? Yikes.

Man, I hope Bronco pursues a new onside kick defense strategy and practices reps for the next few weeks, because every opponent going forward has to think they have a better chance of stealing a possession than stopping Armstrong from putting up points.

Consider, if Virginia defends the onsides kick with a 33% recovery rate (for example). Can an opponent stop Armstrong from driving the field more than 33% of the time?

If not, then an onsides kick should be attempted. It's just math.

Never thought I'd fear defending an onsides kick. Virginia football is wild.
