At Football Study Hall today, I posted a link to full 2005-11 college football targets-and-catches data. Measures like Catch Rate and Yards Per Target are so much more informative than simple yards and yards per catch, so hopefully people enjoy it. There is a likely essay about the data and its predictive and evaluative potential coming in the Football Outsiders Almanac 2012, but for now, here is all the raw data you can stomach.
And yes, the Big 12 has had some ridiculously prolific passing offenses. Who knew?

Trevor Siemian and Carson Wentz rank in the bottom three in average air yards. Do good quarterbacks usually increase their air yards with more experience, or do their passes actually get shorter over time?
