I wanted to discuss some individual player information from the game with the board. First, the records:
- Jeremy Gallon - With his 175 yards today he has 1284 on the season, just 46 yards behind the single season record set by Braylon Edwards in 2004. He also set the record today for most receiving yards by a Michigan player against OSU.
- Blake Countess - I checked to see where his 6 interceptions stack up in the all-time records, but they aren't even close. The record is 10 by Tom Curtis in 1968. The most recent season high is 8 by Woodson in 1997. Countess is tied with a bunch of people for 7th all-time.
- Devin Gardner - With his amazing day today (451 passing, 10 rushing) he finishes with 3443 total yards. This puts him second all-time for total yards behind Denard's record setting 2010 season (4272). He passed John Navarre (3240) for second.
Now for the players who didn't play today. Anyone have any information on these guys?
- Jarrod Wilson - He didn't play at all and as a result the first two OSU touchdowns were significantly the result of bad plays by Furman and Avery.
- Brenden Gibbons - All I heard today was that he hurt his leg and was on crutches. Anyone know the story?
- Richard Ash - Anyone know why he saw meaningful snaps? I'm not saying he did badly (couldn't tell), just curious why he was on the field given our struggles to stop the run. Just rotating more guys?
- James Ross - Any report on what his injury is?
- Did anyone see something that caused the Frank Clark unsportsmanlike penalty? They didn't show anything on TV that seemed to justify it, but I was wondering if they just didn't catch it or the refs called the wrong number. Dumb play, dumb call, or both?
- What is the consensus on the Gardner fumble? I was SHOCKED that they upheld the call. I'm not sure what the replay guys look at as there were two TD calls in the Alabama/Auburn game that the refs went against what I expected.
