Shipley record watch: two games left

 

I haven't updated this since after the Baylor game, so it's about time.  Below are perhaps the nine most significant receiving categories at UT, and where Jordan Shipley stands in each.

Receptions:
Most receptions, game: Shipley already owns this with 15.
Most receptions, season: Cavil had 100, and Ship has 99 so far (one to tie, two to beat)
Most receptions, career: Big Roy had 241, and Ship has 231 so far (needs eleven to beat)

Yards:
Most yards, game: Shipley already owns this with 273.
Most yards, season: Shipley has this with 1292; Kwame's record was 1188 I think
Most yards, career: Big Roy had 3866, and Ship (now 3rd place all-time) has 2998 (needs 868 in two games). This is a long shot, although Ship will need only 35yds. to pass Mike Adams (3032) for second place.

Touchdowns:
Most TDs, game: McGarity has it at 4; hard to say whether Shipley will ever have a shot at this.
Most TDs, season: Big Roy and Sweed each had 12 in a season; Shipley almost tied it with 11 last year, and has 11 again this year (needs one to tie, two to break).
Most TDs, career: Big Roy had 36; Shipley has 31 so far (needs 5 to tie, six to beat).

He already holds three records listed above, although he might have some more obscure ones.  Unless something unusual happens, Shipley will probably walk away with two more: season receptions, career receptions, and at least a tie for season touchdowns.  He has an outside shot at career touchdowns, and is almost definitely out of the running for career yardage; however, he will finish second on both of those lists behind the great Roy Williams.

Good luck in the Big 12 Championship Game, and then the BCS Championship Game, Jordan.
