Travis Greene on all-time list

So, here are the all-time BGSU leaders in rushing, clipped from the BGSU media guide with absolutely no permission.

Travis Greene has 1,167 yards, which is the 4th best rushing season in school history.

He needs:

19 yards to move into 3rd.
248 to move into 2nd
279 to move into the all-time lead.

Which is pretty good, given that he was a WR until spring practice.

I know what you are going to say---that teams play a lot more games now.  A couple things.  First, BG has played 10 games--a normal collegiate schedule for many years--and he's still 4th all-time.  Players also used to carry the ball a lot more back in the day.  For example, in the 1971 Paul Miles season you see above, he had 274 carries.  Greene has 190.

So, Greene is averaging 6.1 yards per carry, which is the sixth best season on that measure in the history of BG football.

Slice it how you like Greene is having a monster year for this program.  I think it could get lost in the shuffle, but he is having one of the better seasons for any RB in our program's history...so enjoy!
