Records are made to be broken

2012 Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel take on the NCAA's and SEC's best teams/players from the past.

This is a short list I compiled looking at the NCAA and SEC record books... remember this is only 11 games in, and Texas A&M and JFF have 2 more games to go to pad these stats... these metrics can only go up!! (except averages)

(as of 11/20/2012)

Close to a record but doesn’t meet the minimum for the category yet:


-JFF needs 28 more rushes at his average of 6.48 to be #2 on the average per rush in a season with a minimum of 200 rushes

-When JFF gets to 300 completions (some time in 2013 season) he will have the highest completion percentage all-time in the SEC at 67.7; he will also have the #6 passer rating

-Only 23 players have ever gained 2,000 rushing and 4,000 passing in their career… Johnny only needs 953 passing and 886 rushing to get there… after 11 games.

-JFF needs 90 yards rushing to enter the Top-25 all-time NCAA rushing QBs in a season

-JFF needs 326 total yards to enter the NCAA Top-25 all-time in Yards gained in a season
