MU Football Records Chase (updated 10/21)

Well, Chase Coffman certainly had his way with some of the records this past weekend.  Are there now some national records in his future at the TE position?  Guess you will have to click and find out....

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

National Passing Yardage:

29. David Neill_________'98-'01______10903

30. Alex Brink__________'03-'07______10887

31. Danny Wuerffel______'93-'96______10875

32. Ben Roethlisberger___'01-'03______10829

33. Brian Brohm________'04-'07______10775

34. Chad Pennington____'97-'99______10698

35. Matt Leinart_________'02-'05______10693

36. Kevin Sweeney______'92-'96______10623

37. Andrew Walter_______'01-'04______10617

38. Brett Basanez_______'02-'05______10580

39. Doug Flutie_________'81-'84______10579

40. Chase Daniel_______'05-'08______10553

 

Another 300+ yardage effort from Chase puts him right behind Doug Flutie, and puts him in range of passing a good amount of people this week.  Usually I only put the next ten on here, but they are grouped kind of close together, so I threw on some extras, especially given the game Chase had last time out against CU.

 

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

21. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____149.8

 

Chase went up by .1 given his effort against UT.  I would love to see him finish inside the top 20 all time in this category, especially given all the NFL-level talent in this group.

 

National TD Passes:

29. Paul Pinegar_________'02-'05______84

30. Ryan Schneider_______'00-'03______82

31. Ryan Dinwiddie_______'00-'03______82

32. Joe Adams__________'77-'80______81

33. Drew Brees__________'97-'00______81

34. Eli Manning__________'00-'03______81

35. Jason White__________'99-'04______81

36. Danny Wimprine_______'01-'04_____81

37. Chase Daniel ________ ‘05-08 _____ 80

 

Been a slower couple of weeks for Chase, who did score his 10th rushing TD of his career late in the game.  But hey...another week, another WIMPRINE reference.

 

Total Offense:

1. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 ____ 13088

2. Chase Daniel _______‘05-08 _____11354

3. Jeff Handy __________ ‘91-94 _____ 6640

4. Phil Bradley _________ ‘77-80 _____ 6459

5. Corby Jones _________‘95-98 _____ 6230

 

Sack and negative yardage took this number down a bit given his passing statistics.  1,800 yards with 6/7 games to go should mean he still achieves this number before all is said and done.

 

All-Purpose Yardage:

1. Brad Smith _________ ‘02-05 _____ 4419

2. Jeremy Maclin_______'07-'08_____4130

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

 

Once again, some extra chances at kickoffs gave Maclin some additional opportunites to rack up additional yardage.  Looks like this record will likely fall on the road (unfortunately) against Baylor, but maybe he has a huge game or a quiet couple of games in the return aspect to do so at home.

 

Receptions:

1.Chase Coffman (TE) ____'05-08______ 213

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

6. Victor Bailey___________'90-'92______128

7. Thomson Omboga______'01-'04______127

    Jeremy Maclin_________'07-'08______127

9. Brian Sallee___________'91-'94______119

10. Sean Coffey__________'02-'05______118

 

With 12 receptions for the week, consider this record SHATTERED by Mr. Coffman.  The national TE record appears to be 217 by Ibn Green of Louisville, from 1996-1999.  Mr. Green also appears to hold the record for TE yardage with 2,830.  Obviously, both of these are very much in play for Chase.  Mr. Maclin also had a nice week, and still seems extremely likely to settle in at #4 all time before this season is over.  Not bad for a two year run

 

Receiving Yardage:

1. Justin Gage ____________‘99-02_____2704

2. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08_____2366

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

4. Victor Bailey ____________ ‘90-92_____2144

5. Will Franklin ____________ ‘04-07_____2125

6. Linzy Collins ____________ ‘89-90_____1760

7. Jeremy Maclin__________'07-'08_____1721

8. Kenny Holly ____________ ‘90-93_____1708

9. Sean Coffey ___________ ‘02-05______1596

10. Mel Gray _____________ ‘68-70______1491

11.Hank Burnine __________ ‘53-55_____1445

 

I've decided Hank Burnine should stay on this list for as long as I am doing these posts.  Anyway, BIG week for Coffman as he now should put a hell of a move on Gage in this coming weeks to pass him.  Unfortunately, I doubt he is able to do this by the kSU game, but in front of the mostly home crowd at Arrowhead is possible.  Maclin should obviously pass Collins this week, but will need a few more weeks to get to the next level.

 

Receiving TD's:

1. Chase Coffman (TE) _____ ‘05-08______ 24

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

    Justin Gage ____________ ‘99-02______ 18

4. Mel Gray _______________68-70______ 14

    Jeremy Maclin__________'07-'08______14

6. Will Franklin ____________ ‘04-07______ 13

    Sean Coffey ____________ ‘02-05______ 13

8. Victor Bailey ____________ ‘90-92______ 12

    Dwayne Blakley _________ ‘98-01______ 12

 

Just the one TD catch by Coffman gives him even more distance.

 

Scoring:

1. Jeff Wolfert (PK) ______ ‘06-08_____ 296

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

 

300 points for Wolfert coming up.  Martin Gramatica is 30th all time with 349 points...not outside the realm of possibility for Wolfert to achieve that with (hopefully) seven games remaining.
