CougarStats 2000s all-decade team: Wide Receivers


Last week’s Tight Ends poll was much less dramatic than the previous week’s QB voting. Dennis Pitta ran away with it while Jonny Harline was a distant second.

This week we move on to wide receivers. If we were only allowed one vote, we might have a similar result. But we’re choosing two: Matt Allen,  Toby Christensen, Austin Collie, Reno Mahe, Michael Reed, and Todd Watkins are the nominees.

Week 9 stat list update


Once again, with a young team, there isn’t a lot of movement near the top of the stat lists right now. I’ll try to avoid mentioning the overly obscure, like Michael Alisa at No. 83 in career rushing ahead of Ken Call and Kent Oborn.

For the first time this season, Riley Nelson has more passing yards that Jake Heaps.

Nelson now has more than the 100 attempts needed to show up on the season rating list. His rating for this year dropped from 174.5 to – between Brandon Doman  ’01 and Max Hall ’08.

Matt Marshall’s career passer rating took a hit. With a single incomplete pass, his rating dropped from 188.2 to 125.5.
