Well how about that? Good find @TurtleBITW

There is often the debate on just how good Louisville’s 2006 Orange Bowl team was, especially considering Michael Bush was injured. Even without Bush, the Cards seemed to be on the doorstep of a National Championship. What if there was a College Football Playoff back then?

The following is from picksixpreviews.com:

DeVante Parker’s Final Ranks in the UofL Record Books

We have just seen a college career come to an end that we won’t soon forget. There are surely going to be some good wide receivers come in and play for UofL over the next several years. And the best ones will undoubtedly be compared to DeVante Parker. He has set a bar that will be nearly impossible to reach. The combination of his talent along with him being a hometown kid just make him one of the biggest fan favorites to ever come through the UofL football program.

Although he missed the first 7 games of his senior season, Parker still climbed to (or near) the top of many different categories in the UofL history books. So there will always be that “what if” factor with Parker’s numbers, especially because 6 of those first 7 games were said to be the “easier” part of the 2014 schedule. No telling what kind of numbers he would have put up against teams like Murray State, Syracuse, and Miami (again).

Here are where his final numbers rank in some of the wide receiver categories in UofL history…

Everytime I update this post, I can’t help but to think “what if?” DeVante missed the first 7 games this season but has still managed to climb up the charts on these records. It has been nothing but a treat to be able to watch Parker these last 4 years. We have 1 last game to enjoy him in a Louisville uniform.

Parker did whatever he wanted on Saturday against Kentucky, catching 6 passes for 180 yards and 3 touchdowns.

As we enter the final week of the regular season, here is where DeVante Parker ranks in some of the receiving categories in UofL history. We are only left to wonder “what if” when it comes to these records and Parker, as he missed the first 7 games this season with his foot injury.

Updating the UofL Record Books with DeVante Parker

Back in July, I posted some of the all-time receiving records at UofL and showed where DeVante Parker ranked in those categories. Obviously, there wasn’t any need to update them during the season since he missed the first 6 games. But now since he is back, and back with a vengeance, I figured it would be ok to update the stats now. So here is where DeVante ranks among the all-time UofL greats. Keep in mind, he still has 3 games to play.

Career Receptions

1. 299   Arnold Jackson, 1997-00

2. 217   Ibn Green, 1996-99

3. 187   J.R. Russell, 2001-04

It’s only July, but with the Cards officially in the ACC now, that opening football game against Miami on September 1 feels like it’s right around the corner. Because of that, it seemed like a good time to update you on the wide receiver record books at UofL. Senior DeVante Parker has a chance to put his name at or near the top of a lot of lists for the Cards this season. These are only the career lists, but of course he can make his way onto season-leading lists as the season goes on. Let’s see where he stands right now entering the 2014 season.
