Game Youth Jorge Soler Jersey Daryl Washington has been conditionally reinstated to return to the NFL and the Arizona Cardinals after spending three entire seasons sidelined by suspensions, the NFL announced Tuesday.
Pumphrey gets the benefit of his numbers from four bowl games in four years, and they’re substantial. He had 213 bowl rushing yards coming into Saturday, plus another 200 in Mountain West title games. That’s 413 yards Pumphrey gets credit for compared to Dayne, not yet counting this year’s numbers.
Dayne’s real rushing total, counting postseason games, is 7,125 yards, all earned at Wisconsin from the 1996 to 1999 seasons. Dayne congratulated Pumphrey while also pointing out that number.
The NCAA doesn’t credit Dayne with 728 postseason yards. If it did, Pumphrey would’ve entered the bowl game a full 835 yards behind Dayne. We can probably deduce he wouldn’t have been able to catch him.
The same goes for Tony Dorsett, who ran for 6,526 postseason-included yards at Pitt between 1973 and 1976. Pumphrey entered his last game 237 yards behind him for second place behind Dayne on the all-inclusive rushing list. But in the NCAA’s view, Pumphrey entered the day 208 yards up on Dorsett.
None of this is to denigrate Pumphrey, a great player wrapping up a great career. He is, indeed, among the most prolific runners ever to play college football. He got to have a deserved, cool moment with his dad on the field after the game.
Kids Greg Lloyd Jersey He just wasn’t more prolific than Dayne and Dorsett, no matter how the NCAA decides to count yards.
