he's dreamy. short, but BIG TEN RECORD RECEIVING RECORD dreamy.
Jeremy Gallon snowflake thread
such bs. i can't believe we couldn't dial up another play to get him the all-time record. pure trash. ugh. so frustrated.
he needed 36 yards
If they had a way to run it to Gallon, it went for 38 yards.
This must be sarcasm.
Al Borges planned to get him within 36 yards of the record...
With today, how many yards receiving does he have on the year?
But I know it's right around 800 now
Close to 900
If my math is right, he has 831 yards.
A great guy and a great player. He deserves it!
Did he do well or something?!
I think he got a participation trophy or something.
It was pretty rad though. Congrats to him.
On a side note I was back n'forth on who to pick for ESPN College Football fantasy but ended up taking Funchess. Argh!
That is all
But, I think we just saw how Funchess is helping Gallon. This would not have happened 3 weeks ago.
I wonder if they aren't helping each other off and on. Gallon had the monster game v ND and then disappeared, then Funchess had 2 monster games (with little Gallon) and now Gallon with the monster game again. Might be D-coordinators alternating on overreacting
Gallon had 184 receiving yards against ND. He was the focal point of the passing game, but then when defenses started shading a safety over, that opened it up for Funchess. Now DCs are going to have a big headache trying to figure out how to cover both.
Which means the rest of the team can play 9-on-7. Fitz, Butt, Jackson, and Chesson should be licking their chops.
Why was Gardner the player of the game? I mean he did really well but... JMFG
500+ yards! No INT's! What the hell do you want from your QB?
QBs throw for over 500 yds more often than receivers get over 300 yards
Actually, no Michigan QB had ever passed for 400 yards in a game before, much less 500.
Gardner had 584 total yards and 5 TDs (3 rushing, 2 passing), both school records. Hard to turn the guy down for POTG after that.
He meant generally. Gallon's is a much rarer accomplishment.
Well, how often does a guy throw for 500 and rush for 3 TDs in the same game? It may have never happened before. Devin not only threw it all over the place but was a huge part of the running game, too.
IU band girl wants JG's phone number
Somebody get him some Campbell's Chunky Soup...he must be hungry.
Alternatively: Gallon? More like 55 gallon drum!
858 yards on the year.
Only halfway through the season, so I'm sure he'll break 1,000! Who was the last 1,000 yard receiver UM had?? Avant? Manningham? Edwards??
Manningham, with 1174 in 2007. Braylon has the all-time single season mark with 1330; Gallon needs a hair over 83 yards per game to match that if we don't make it to Indianapolis, 71 and change if we do.
After today he's averaging 8YPG more than Braylon's 2004 season, backloaded schedule caveats and all that, though.
"I am not the receiver you want to cover."
Funchess also got over 80 yards. Nice day for him as well.
Mr. Gallon you are a stud and I am really happy for you. Good job and keep up the great work. Just. Kudos.
Jeremy is making a case with his body of work that he may just be the best ever go to guy. Up against some good ones(AC, DH, Braylon), but man this little guy embodies Michigan football.
I don't think he's quite as good as the three you mentioned - those guys scored a lot more TDs. Braylon caught 39 TDs (which I believe is a B1G record), AC 37 and Desmond 32. Gallon has 15 in his career.
Still, he's in the conversation for top 10 receivers all-time here.
Invisibility cloaks seem like an unfair advantage
We can also thank Funchess for JG being open most of the day. See what happens when you have two deep threats, records get broken!
Yeah he did this against a crappy defense, but so the hell what? Hell of a performance by Gallon. If Indiana was this bad on pass defense then several teams would've done this to them by now.
Big Ten player of the week. Gallon has my vote.
Capital One NCAA Impact Player. Or wtf ever they call it
Yes against a crappy defense, but as I've pointed out to some haters: there have been better passing offenses up against worse defenses and they did not set this record. It's still impressive regardless.
Jeremy Gallon: He is good at the footballs.
As insane as breaking Roundtree's record by more than 120 yards is, he also couldn't handle the low-but-catchable throw to start the game (15 yards or so?) and dropped one he could have caught downfield in stride (15 to 70+ yards?).
Think on both of those drives he had long receptions
Actually, the first drop was the first play of the game; Michigan went three and out after that. Could have had a bunch more yards on that drive.
Congratulations Gallon!! You deserved this one! Very happy you're in a Michigan uniform.
I salute you, Jeremy, and huge props to Devin, the O line, Fitz, and Funchess who all really set the place on fire today.
Young Mr. Gallon is a scholar and a gentleman. If I had an adult daughter, I would gladly allow him to plow her.
one day you'll regret this comment
Looking at the Michigan All-Time receiving leaderboard, with that game (if my math is correct) Jeremy Gallon just passed Jack Clancy, Derrick Alexander, Mercury Hayes, and Desmond Howard.
He sits at 11th all time with 2156 receiving yards, just 7 behind Greg McMurtry.
still in play. Nice, except remaining teams on schedule may actually play defense unlike IU.
Nebraska also has a terrible defense and OSU's passing defense is atrocious. Gallon could certainly break a few more records!
Gallon catches all of them.
looks less and less like Felecia Pearson everyday.
That's a good thing?!
Ironically enough, she's is prison after getting busted for heron distribution so I'd say yes it's a good thing.
He was open all day. Very happy for him.
I don't care that IU kept leaving the guy with 300 YARDS RECEIVING open. Hell of a job by Gallon and DG!!!
Well, it's not like they forgot about him. He's just so good at that double-move, and in coming back to the ball, that he's really hard to cover.
I like him.
He might have a promising future.
His performance today simply wasn't good enough.
...in all seriousness, congrats to Devin and Jeremy, both balled out of control. Gallon's performance was amazing to watch.
70 of those yards will not count. They came on a bubble screen and as we all know, Al does not acknowledge the existence of such a thing.
he is only 5 foot 8, but he plays like 5 foot 8 and 1/2.
Nice to know he has the wit to live up to those dimples.
Point made, of course, but for accuracy's sake: "I'm 5'8 1/2", but I play like I'm 5'9". "
Yards by the Gallon
to read what they're saying on the IU football boards about not covering Gallon.
But its all probably about basketball anyway.
All 8 of them.
as I had it dvr'd. Amazing offensive totals! Gallon was incredible to watch and it was good to see Devin hit so many long balls! Go blue!
No disrespect to Desmond's #21 but I would like to see Gallon awarded the #1 jersey. Not only has he been consistently good for his whole career, he just broke the Big Ten record but it would be totally appropriate for MSU to have to face another #1.
If he doesn't deserve it for all of this, who would?
he was fantastic and fun to watch. Wow!
We'll have to shut him down somehow on 11/9
Nice post. As a former coach the past two weeks have seen me run the gamut of emotions, from being pissed to being satisfied with a win. At a younger age the anger would have humbled me for a longer period of time. But now I realize, and this will piss a lot of people off, I realize RR was totally correct. We will win when we are ready. These were two of the most exciting games I have seen. Hell, if Brady is meant to get us there, he will. If not, we start anew. Oh Hell no, twenty years ago I would have never said or felt this, but I can actually wait until the team is ready. After all, what else can we do?
JG is a Pokemon master...cuz he catches 'em all (or at least most of them...those two early misses were hard to watch)
Back on track for a 1,000 yard receiver this year. Gallon is gonna play on Sundays.
