MU Football Records Chase (updated 11/3)

 The result of the game aside, it was a good week for some on this records chase, and a slower week for others.  The rapid ascension of Chase Daniel in the national books really is something to behold, and not that I in any way begrudge the decision to play him his freshman season, but it would be interesting to see where some of these would have ended up had he kept the year. 

And as an added bonus, we went ahead and added two new categories to the list on the defensive side of the ball.

As always, thanks to for their record keeping, as well as this ridiculously long file from the NCAA

National Passing Yardage:

12. Brady Quinn_______'03-'06______11762

13. David Greene______'01-'04______11528

14. Gino Guidugli______'01-'04______11453

15. Todd Santos_______'84-'87______11425

16. Carson Palmer_____'98-'02______11388

17. Tim Lester_________'96-'99______11299

18. Derek Anderson_____'01-'04_____11249

19. Chris Leak_________'03'-06______11213

20. Peyton Manning_____'94-'97______11201

21. Chase Daniel______'05-'08______11173


Chase jumps another ten'ish people with his standard 300+ effort.  He will get past more people at his final home game, but not nearly as many as he has been passing from week to week.  In fact, I think he has passed almost 20 people in the past two games. A good week would put him just past David Greene, but it starts to spread out some after Quinn.  But hey...I only see four NFL QB's up there right now :-)



National Passing Efficiency: (500 completions or more)

12. Chad Pennington_____'97-'99_______156.2

13. Donovan McNabb_____'95-'98_______155.1

14. Tim Rattay___________'97-'99______154.3

15. Duante Culpepper_____'96-'98______153.1

16. David Carr__________''97-'98_______152.9

17. Jason White_________'99-'04_______152.7

18. Ben Roethlisberger____'01-'03______151.3

19. Chris Weinke_________'97-'00______151.1

20. Byron Leftwich________'98-'02______150.9

      Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 ______150.9


The two interceptions for Chase means this number did not actually move.  Wish I knew what the hell drove this number, but still with four or five INT-free games could still move this number up into Donovan McNabb territory



National TD Passes:

9.  Kliff Kingsbury_________'99-'02_____95

      Philip Rivers__________'00-'03_____95

      Brady Quinn__________'03-'06_____95

12. David Klingler_________'88-'91_____91

13. Peyton Manning_______'94-'97______89

       Byron Leftwich________'99-'02______89

15. Chris Leak___________'03-'06______88

       Jordan Palmer________'02-'06______88

17. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____ 88

Another week, another 3 TD's, but just like the national yardage record, this one starts to get spread out a bit more as you get to the top.  Another solid week should put Chase past 90 career TD's.  Again, only seven D-1 QB's have thrown for 100 TD's all time, and with (likely) five game remaining, Chase has a great shot to land in 7th place overall on this list (as it goes from Leinart at 100 to Wuerffel at 114).



Total Offense:

1. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 ____ 13088

2. Chase Daniel _______‘05-08 _____12021

3. Jeff Handy __________ ‘91-94 _____ 6640

4. Phil Bradley _________ ‘77-80 _____ 6459

5. Corby Jones _________‘95-98 _____ 6230


300+ yards throwing and a few extra rushing yards thrown in means another 330'ish afternoon for Chase.  He remains on pace to break Brad's record either right at the end of the kU game or to start the Big XII Championship (hopefully).



All-Purpose Yardage:

1. Jeremy Maclin_______'07-'08_____4483

2. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 _____ 4419

3. Devin West _________ ‘95-98 _____ 3824

4. Brock Olivo _________ ‘94-97 _____ 3475

5. Zack Abron __________‘00-03 _____ 3426

6. Darrell Wallace ______ ‘84-87 _____ 3303

7. Joe Stewart _________‘74-77 _____ 3256

8. James Wilder _______‘78-80 _____ 2769


Mike Kelly gave this one mention on the broadcast, but never specified exactly when it happened.  Off day for certain for Maclin catching the ball, but Baylor's TDs gave him unpredicted opportunities to rack up some extra kickoff yardage which pushed him over the top.



(National and Mizzou) Receptions:

27. John Standeford_______'00-'03_____249     

28. Nate Burleson_________'00-'02_____248      

       Eric Deslauriers_______'02-'06_____248

30. James Jordan_________'98-'00____246

31. David Williams________'83-'85_____245


1.Chase Coffman (TE) ____'05-08______ 230

2. Martin Rucker (TE) ______ ‘04-07_____ 203 

3. Justin Gage __________ ‘99-02______ 200

4. Kenny Holly __________ ‘90-93_______151

5. Will Franklin __________ ‘04-07______ 143

    Jeremy Maclin________'07-'08______143

7. Victor Bailey___________'90-'92______128

8. Thomson Omboga______'01-'04______127

9. Brian Sallee___________'91-'94______119

10. Sean Coffey__________'02-'05______118


Ten big receptions for Chase means I need to add some national numbers to this one, and the active career reception stats found here say Chase is 6th right now.    I will go ahead and throw some folks on there just to give a sense of where he is against what I know are career numbrs coming into this season.  Needless to say, at the rate he is catching balls, he will start to move up the national list before the season has ended.  An off'ish day for Maclin puts him in a tie with Will Franklin now with Kenny Holly in his sights.


(National and Mizzou) Receiving Yardage:

1. Ibn Green (national TE)____'96-'99_____2830


1. Justin Gage ____________‘99-02_____2704

2. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08_____2491

3. Martin Rucker (TE) _______ ‘04-07_____2175

4. Victor Bailey ____________ ‘90-92_____2144

5. Will Franklin ____________ ‘04-07_____2125

6. Jeremy Maclin__________'07-'08_____1886

7. Linzy Collins ____________ ‘89-90_____1760

8. Kenny Holly ____________ ‘90-93_____1708

9. Sean Coffey ___________ ‘02-05______1596

10. Mel Gray _____________ ‘68-70______1491

11.Hank Burnine __________ ‘53-55_____1445


No movement here, as Chase's ten catches went for a somewhat pedestrian 75 yards.  I guess that what happens when you catch so many that close to the out of bounds line.  Maclin also puts a few extra yards on to his total, but neither is in position to pass anyone for at least a few games.



Receiving TD's:

1. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08______ 27

2. Martin Rucker (TE) _______ ‘04-07______ 18

    Justin Gage ____________ ‘99-02______ 18

4. Jeremy Maclin__________'07-'08______16

5. Mel Gray _______________68-70_______ 14

6. Will Franklin ____________ ‘04-07______ 13

    Sean Coffey ____________ ‘02-05______ 13

8. Victor Bailey ____________ ‘90-92______ 12

    Dwayne Blakley _________ ‘98-01______ 12


Two more for Chase, however none for Jeremy leave the order of this list the same from previous weeks.




1. Jeff Wolfert (PK) ______ ‘06-08_____ 319

2. Brad Smith __________ ‘02-05______ 284

3. Zack Abron ___________ ‘00-03_____ 252

4. Corby Jones __________ ‘95-98_____ 228

5. Jeff Jacke (PK) ________ ‘88-92_____ 225

6. Bob Steuber __________ ‘40-42_____ 222

7. Tom Whelihan (PK) ____ ‘84-87_____ 191

8. Brock Olivo __________ ‘94-97_____ 188

9. Devin West __________ ‘95-98_____ 174


Only seven points from Wolfert this past weekend, but none bigger than the last three. 



1. Brian Smith__________'03-'06_____31.5

2. Justin Smith_________'98-'00_____22.5

3. Lorenzo Williams_____'04-'07_____19

4. Stryker Sulak________'05-'08_____18.5

5. Rick Lyle____________'90-'93______18

6. Bobby Bell___________'81-'83______17
    Steve Martin__________'92-'95______17

    Antwaun Bynum_______'00-'02______17

9. Xzavie Jackson_______'03-'06______16.5

10 C.J. Mosely__________'02-'04______15.5

11. Ziggy Hood_________'05-'08______14.5


Added this section, thanks to  Fun to see some older names on there...I never would have pegged Bynum to have ended up as high on here as he did.  Kind of nice to see.



1. Adrian Jones________'86-'89________15

2. Ken Baston_________'63-'65________14

    Bill Whitaker_________'77-'80________14

4. Erik McMillan________'84-'87_________13

5. Eric Wright__________'78-'80________11

6. William Moore______'05-'08_________10

     Roger Wehrli________'66-'68________10

    Harold Piersey_______'95-'98________10

    Kevin McIntosh_______'91-'94________10


Good ol' HP (Harold Piersey).  And wow...never would have guessed to start the season that Willy Mo's number would not rise up this list like it did last year.
