Khalil Mack is not satisfied with Tackles for losses, sacks, and forced fumbles. This past week he crawled up into to more UB Record Categories
Let's start with the NCAA Records Mack is chasing.
|1||Jason Babin, W. Michigan||75||7.5||1
||5 Tied With ->||14||1|
|2||George Selvie, South Florida||69||1.5||6||Zack Follett, California||13|
|3||Khalil Mack, Buffalo||67.5||6||Stryker Sulak, Missouri||13|
|6||Khalil Mack, Buffalo.||13|
Mack's forced fumble and assisted tackle for loss moved him closer to taking the number one spot. The next time Khalil forces a fumble it will tie the NCAA record, and if he manages another this season he will stand alone.
In terms of tackles for loss it was not a great showing. A half TFL is below the pace he needed to chase down Jason Babin. It's still doable but one more game like that and Mack may end up at #2 all time.
In the Buffalo Record Books Mack's name will start appearing in two new categories this week. Solo tackles and total tackles.
|1||Khalil Mack||25.5||10.5||1||Davonte Shannon||258||94||1||Davonte Shannon||461||175|
|2||Rich Dadabo||24||9||2||Craig Guest||236||72||2||Craig Guest||455||169|
|2||Vince Canos||24||9||3||J.J. Gibson||220||56||3||Mike Laipple||402||116|
|4||Trevor Scott||19||4||4||Mike Newton||196||32||4||Pete Conley||376||90|
|5||Steven Means||18.5||3.5||5||Pete Conley||191||27||5||J.J. Gibson||357||71|
|5||Dave May||18||3||6||Mark Graham||182||18||6||Mike Newton||342||56|
|7||Keith Hansen||16||1||7||Gemara Williams||176||12||7||Shane Currey||300||14|
|8||Hardy Mitchell||15.5||0.5||8||Khalil Mack||164||7||Cosmo Nestola||300||14|
|9||Colby Way||15||9||Bryan Cummings||158||9||Justin Winters||299||13|
I'd be surprised, but not amazed, if Mack makes the top 5 in solo tackles. His total tackles number should get him alone in #7 by the time the season is over.
Jobi-Wan is aiming to surpass Drew Willy's 2008 season and in the process climb into the top five most prolific touch down tossers in UB history. With two more he will leapfrog Buffalo legend Gordon Bukaty. Pretty much everyone on this may fall a spot before the sophomore Licata finishes his UB career. Even Drew Willy's 52 Career TD's looks vulnerable before Licata is done.
|1||Drew Willy||52||29||1||Drew Willy (2008)||25||9|
|2||Marty Barrett||44||21||2||Marty Barrett (1983)||18||2|
|3||Cliff Scott||43||20||2||Cliff Scott (1992)||18||2|
|4||Joe Freedy||32||9||2||Zach Maynard (2009)||18||2|
|5||Chad Salisbury||31||8||5||Chad Salisbury (1997)||16|
|6||Frank Reilly||27||4||5||Jerry Davis (2010)||16|
|7||Gordon Bukaty||25||2||5||Licata (2013)||16|
|8||Joe Licata||23||8||Drew Willy (2007)||15|
Neutz caught up to Naaman Roosevelt's career touchdown mark on Tuesday but the only other record climbing he might do during his UB career is in receptions.
|1||Naaman Roosevelt||268||91||1||Naaman Roosevelt||28|
|2||Drew Haddad||240||63||1||Alex Neutz||28|
|3||Brett Hamlin||185||8||2||Chris D’Amico||19|
Now consider that for two years of his career the Bulls had no reliable passing game. He should catch Brett Hamlin whose teams had an amazing passing game (though in fairness to Brett he was sharing catches with Naaman for most of his UB career).
Switching back over to defense Johnson caught up to Domonic Cook with a pass defended against Ohio
|1||Gemara Williams (2002-05)||39||3|
|2||Mark Graham (2000-03)||37||1|
|3||Domonic Cook (2007-10)||36|
|3||Najja Johnson (2010- )||36|
Three more and Johnson will catch Gemara Williams for the all time UB record. Buffalo has either four or five games left so that's a tall order.
The good news for Clarke is that the UB Offense is giving him ample opportunity to rack up points, one at a time...
|1||A.J. Principe||44||12||1||A.J. Principe||133||64||1||A.J. Principe||265||100|
|2||Dallas Pelz||35||3||2||Scott Keller||71||2||2||Patrick Clarke||165|
|3||Patrick Clarke||32||3||Mark Mozrall||69|
The "Bad News" is that Clarke is not getting a lot of opportunities for field goals. It's doubtful the Junior will catch A.J. Principe in field goals this season and even less likely that he will catch him in total points either this year or next.
Bo's numbers are so prolific he is making spreadsheet management a pain in the butt. He is about 600 yards in front of James Starks all time record and needs just 263 to pass the 4,000 mark. He is also four 100 yard games in front of Anthony Swan for his career and just three behind his own single season record of 8 set back in 2011.
So what records is he still chasing?
Carries is a lock if Oliver stays healthy. Quinn is riding Bo for anywhere between 25-40 carries a game so by the time Buffalo and Bowling Green are playing in "The Brawl for it All" (trademark Conrad) Bo will probably be past Anthony Swan.
Touchdowns will be touch but he could catch Starks. He will like pass Swan and Buffalo's sensation from the 60's Lee Jones.
Bo is chasing himself and James Starks for single season yards. He might beat O.D. Underwood's 1986 mark by half time of the Toledo game.
