Gallon named B1G Offensive Player of the Week
Geez, ya think?!
Hey it could have been Gardner.
I was dying for Gallon to get one more catch for nine or more yards so he could have beaten the all-time record, but I'll take 362...I guess.
I think the record is 405.
2007 Troy Edwards from Louisiana tech. 405 on 21 receptions
hmmmm, I clearly heard the wrong stat on tv then.
Should have thrown that last pass to Funchess to Gallon.
Why is Borges so conservative??
He had two 70 yard completions where he was tackled at the 11 and 2 yard lines, respectively. Clearly we need to blame our strength and conditioning staff for Gallon getting caught from behind.
Can't coach SPEEEEEED. ESSSS-EEEEE-SEEEE!
Gallon just ran out of.....gas.
It's so confusing. Gallon is always outmatched size wise and evidently can't outrun dbs, but is out there smashing records. He's either one of the greatest college route runners ever, or he literally has a cloaking device.
Gallon keeps peeking over his shoulder to see where pursuit is coming from.
He was alright.
Please use this same game plan against OSU.
*offensive* game plan.
It's funny that you could make an argument for Gardner as well. Just an amazing offensive performance.
Ya but qbs passing for 500+ happens often nowadays. Receiving for 369 happens once in a lifetime
And an argument can be made for Fitz as well (to a lesser extent). Regardless of my overall opinions on our offense, that was a hell of a showing by that unit, and while there's a very high chance we'll never see anything like it again, there's no reason why we can't have multiple guys vying for B1G PotW at the same time more often.
can someone make a gallon highlight tape...been looking for one for a while. I think he earned one.
I DEMAND A RECOUNT!
Gallon was to the record made me wish someone would go through and see where they might have rounded a few numbers up instead of down. There are no half-yards, right?
I will be honest and say that I would not have thought there would be any question on this particular honor this week. Congratulations to Jeremy Gallon!
In other news...
The grass is green today.
Gallon's 369 yards are the 2nd highest in FBS history, and 11th highest single game receiving total in all of college football history (there are two guys in DII/DIII tied at 370). Troy Edwards did his 405 yards in 1998. #3 is some guy named Randy Gatewood who had 362 yards for UNLV in 1994. So this is the most prolific WR performance in over 15 years. Amazing.
During the game thread, when they said he had 116 yards in the first quarter, I thought "Wow, he could get the school record," but I can't believe how much he destroyed it. Not only did he gain 50% more than Roundtree's old record, but he nearly doubled the #3 all-time Michigan record - Jack Clancy's 197 yards in 1966. (As an aside, I think it's amazing that Clancy's record lasted 44 years, given all the great wideouts we had in the meantime.)
Indiana's defense should receieve honorable mention.
