MU Football Records Chase (updated 9/30)

Been two weeks since last we updated, and since then I was able to find a 2007 version (meaning I believe it is through 2006) of the NCAA record book.  And it really took me two weeks to find it.  So, where Chase has already parked some Mizzou records, I will give you a little insight as to how close he is (or isn't) to some national records.

As always, thanks to the release from for their stat and record book goodness, and now the NCAA for this 626 page monster.

National Passing Yardage:

1. Peyton Manning______'94-'97_____11201

2. Jordan Palmer_______'02-'06_____11084

3. Charlie Frye_________'01-'04_____11049

4. John Beck__________'03-'06______11021

5. Drew Brees_________'97-00______10909

6. David Neil__________'98-'01______10903

7. Ben Roethlisberger___'01-'03______10829

8. Brett Basanez_______'02-'05______10580

9. Doug Flutie_________'81-'84______10579

10. Chase Daniel________'05-'08_____9592


We will switch this one up to a national view.  Of course, Timmy Chang is the leader at just over 17,000 yards, but if Chase can get over 13,000, he will likely slide into 4th all time.  Here are the next people he has to catch, and it looks like it will take a couple of games to start passing people.  Once he does though, he will fly through this list


National Passing Efficiency:

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

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

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

4. Duante Culpepper____'96-'98_______153.1

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

6. Jason White_________'99-'04______152.7

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

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

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

10. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____149.3


Will switch this one over as well...for the season Chase is at 193.39, which would break the national single season record.  For his career, he moved this number 1.3 points from his last who knows where he will land on the all-time list....but here are the next people.  Ryan Dinwiddie holds the career record at 168.9  This is the only information I dont feel the best about since I dont think it includes last season's stats.  But do you know what I see on here?  A LOT of NFL QB's.


Total Offense:

1. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 ____ 13088

2. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____ 10355

3. Jeff Handy __________ ‘91-94 _____ 6640

4. Phil Bradley _________ ‘77-80 _____ 6459

5. Corby Jones _________ ‘95-98 _____ 6230


You can pretty much use the national passing yards list as a similar list here, but with Brad still in front, I will keep this one here for now.  Brad is 5th all time on the total offense list.  As Chase gets closer, I will update this with some national people.


TD Passes:

1. Paul Pinegar_________'02-'05_______84

2. Ryan Schneider______'00-'03________82

3. Ryan Dinwiddie_______'00-'03______82

4. Joe Adams__________'77-'80______81

5. Drew Brees__________'97-'00______81

6. Eli Manning__________'00-'03______81

7. Jason White__________'99-'04______81

8. Danny Wimprine_______'01-'04_____81

9. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____ 74


Decided to add this one too just to show a little bit about where Chase is.  Again, without the stats from last season, I am not for certain this is accurate...but it should give some idea.  I believe Colt Brennan has this now with about 130-something.  Looks like it will take a couple of games, but he will start moving through the ranks soon.  100 TD's would put him about tied for 5th all time.


All-Purpose Yardage:

1. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 _____ 4419

2. Devin West _________ ‘95-98 _____ 3824

3. Jeremy Maclin_______'07-'08______3550

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


Maclin passed two more folks last time out, and a big return game against Nebraska could get him past West given how well Chase is finding him on the field.  Brad Smith's record is not long for this world.



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

2. Justin Gage __________ ‘99-02_____ 200

3. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08_____ 185

4. Kenny Holly __________ ‘90-93_____ 151

5. Will Franklin __________ ‘04-07_____ 143

6. Victor Bailey__________'90-'92______128

7. Thomson Omboga______'01-'04_____127

8. Brian Sallee___________'91-'94______119

9. Sean Coffey____________'02-'05______118

10. Jeremy Maclin_________'07-'08_____106


Ten catches moves Coffman closer, and Maclin's monster effort puts him on this list for the first time.  If Maclin or Coffman pass anyone in this next game, it probably does not bode well for Nebraska.  Coffman has a decent chance at breaking the record at home against Okie State, but he'll need two really solid games.


Receiving Yardage:

1. Justin Gage __________ ‘99-02_____2704

2. Martin Rucker (TE) ______ ‘04-07_____2175

3. Victor Bailey __________ ‘90-92_____2144

4. Will Franklin __________ ‘04-07_____2125

5. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08_____2051

6. Linzy Collins __________ ‘89-90_____1760

7. Kenny Holly __________ ‘90-93_____1708

8. Sean Coffey __________ ‘02-05_____1596

9. Mel Gray ____________ ‘68-70_____1491

10. Jeremy Maclin________'07-'08_____1446

11.Hank Burnine _________ ‘53-55_____1445


Last time I said, "Maclin is at 1,279 (after only 17 games) and could MAYBE break on to this list this week,"   Guess so, but it is so close, we'll keep good ol' Hank Burnine's name up there one more time.  Coffman looks to land in at least third place this coming week, and another LARGE week from Maclin could push him into 8th.


Receiving TD's:

1. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08______ 23

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

    Justin Gage __________ ‘99-02______ 18

4. Mel Gray ____________ ‘68-70______ 14

5. Jeremy Maclin________'07-'08_______13

    Will Franklin __________ ‘04-07______ 13

    Sean Coffey __________ ‘02-05______ 13

8. Victor Bailey __________ ‘90-92______ 12

    Dwayne Blakley ________ ‘98-01______ 12


Another TD for Coffman, but none via the air for Maclin keeps this list pretty much the same.



1. Brad Smith __________ ‘02-05_____ 284

2. Jeff Wolfert (PK) _______ ‘06-08_____ 274

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


Another 10 points for Wolfert means he has a decent shot at breaking this record.  Personally, I would settle for maybe 7 XP's and an FG to tie with the break coming at home...I'll take my chances of beating Nebraska with 52 points.
