How long until these records are broken?
 
I think some of these records could stand for the next 25 years.


MOST PASSING YARDS (SEASON) - Todd Ellis - 1987- 3206 yards

MOST RUSHING YARDS (SEASON) - George Rogers - 1980 - 1894 yards

MOST RECEIVING YARDS (SEASON) - Alshon Jeffery - 2010 - 1517 yards

Todd Ellis, George Rogers, and Alshon Jeffery are also the All-time leaders in those categories.

I'm not sure anyone is going to touch George's record.

I think Ellis' will be the first to go down, Alshon's would be next.

No, he only had 1,100 yards.

Davis had 1,100 last year too.

Mike Durrah - Single season record holder in tackles - 179 tackles. Will never be broken.

Who was the last gamecock defender to surpass 100 tackles in a season?

Looking back, statistically those defenses in the 80's were the ones racking up the most tackles.

J.D. Fuller - over 100 tackles in three consecutive seasons (143 in 1981, 131 in 1982, and 121 in 1983)
Andrew Provence - 161 tackles in '81 and 133 tackles in '82
James Seawright - 133 tackles in 1984.
Roy Hart - 112 total tackles in '86
Brad Edwards - 130 tackles in 87'

I think if Ellis's record could go down in a few years

Rogers record can be broken if they add more games. So far it's potential of 15 games, can increase to 16-17 depending on the increased playoff games. Crazy thing is he did that when they played 9 games right?

I also want to add, it's good to not break some records, because most of the time it means part of your team isn't doing well. See how well USC did in 2011-2012-2013 and I think the only record broken was JD in 2012 for TFL/Sacks.

Rogers can be broken with the amount of games, but then again in today's day in age you won't see the same kind of Back as George anymore.

George did that in 11 games his senior year.
Carried the ball on average 27 times per game.

Mike played in 12 games last year, and averaged a little under 17 carries per game.
And with the more games added + more blows to the running backs, I don't think you'll see a guy average 27 carries a game in 15-16 games.

This year in the NFL the leading runner in terms of total carries was Lesean McCoy, in 16 games played he averaged 19 carries a game.

Ellis would be the most likely to go down first, right ahead of Jeffery's

I don't see anyone touching George's numbers anytime soon...That is a lot of carries and George did it in a different era of football where you gave the guy 25-30 carries a game...today, guys are lucky to get 20 a game.

1. MOST PASSING YARDS (SEASON) - Todd Ellis - 1987- 3206 yards

2. MOST RUSHING YARDS (SEASON) - George Rogers - 1980 - 1894 yards

3. MOST RECEIVING YARDS (SEASON) - Alshon Jeffery - 2010 - 1517 yards

1. Not till Spurrier leaves. He has a tendency to give the reigns to upper-classmen over youngsters [who may have more talent].

2. Will never be broken.

3. Will go down before #1.

A little perspective, since 1956, where these records would/do rank within the SEC,

#1, Not top 25.
#2 #1
#3 #2.

I would guess that Ellis' record would go down first.

Todd Ellis's single-season passing record is by far the most breakable. 3,206 yards over a 13 game season is 246 passing yards/game. 3,206 passing yards would have been 26th in the country last year. Bo Wallace, who no one considers to be a great QB, had 3,346 passing yards last year.

As for Big George's 1894 rushing yards, I don't envision anyone breaking that in the foreseeable future. That total would've been good enough for 3rd in the country last year. Given durability concerns with RBs, I just can't see a USC RB getting enough carries to pile up that many yards.

Alshon's 1517 yards is also a record I don't see anyone breaking any time soon. That record should have gotten more publicity and hype from USC than it did, because it really is a staggering number. It's the 2nd most Rec. Yards in a single season in SEC history, and is nearly 400 more than the 2nd most single season yards in USC history.

If DT has a breakout year, he could take it down. Below is the yards average per game, from without a bowl game(kind of sad if he did this and USC didn't make a bowl game), all the way up to the NCG.

12=268 No Bowl
13=247 Bowl game
14=230 SECCG
15=214 F4
16=201 NCG

If USC makes it to the SECCG/F4/NCG I can't see DT not breaking that record lol.

bump for the "All time tackles in a single season record" on post 5. That blows my mind. It will never be broken.

Brad Scott holds the all-time single season record for calories consumed.

Agreed, nearly 2000 yds rushing for an RB in todays game in the SEC is just flat out crazy... if that record gets broken its a GUARANTEED Heisman.

Ellis' could go down at any point, I'd say its in real danger from here on out, just based on the arms we have on deck and the changing nature of the game.

GarnetBlack&Blue 05-03-2014 02:13 AM

Re: How long until these records are broken?
 
Also looking back, not even considering the big play moments, but just stats... Alshon's 2010 season was UNBELIEVABLE, probably the best WR season in SEC history, damn shame that Blackmon won the Biletnikoff basically for being in the Big 12, with 8-9 laughable defenses.... and I try not to overstate the SEC superiority issue, but Alshon got robbed that year, Big 12 Defenses were at a historic low and Alshon's numbers were almost as good playing against actual future NFL players!

Mitch and Cooper may do it.

George is safe.

Re: How long until these records are broken?
 
I think Mitch will break Todd's passing record. That is as far as I will go, not sure about the other 2.

#1 will go down first. Really surprising that it still stands. I can see a qb soon for us breaking it.
