Do you honestly think I don't realize that Jerry Rice "translated fairly well to the NFL"? Or that he was a man among boys?slulionsfan wrote:Nothing against Kupp (he's good) but Jerry Rice would beg to differ. I saw him catch 24 balls in a game in against Southern U in 1984. He was a man among boys then, and that's back in the days when SWAC schools were still getting SEC caliber athletes. He translated fairly well to the NFL I would say.kalm wrote:
Like I said...he's the greatest receiver in FCS history. And that's without even comparing level of competition and Kupp's stats against the 4 PAC-12 opponents he faced.
His NFL career remains to be seen.
No argument. He was the greatest! But he fell short of what Kupp did in the FCS is my only point.
Speaking of game stats, here's Kupp's against the PAC 12...all we're bowl teams and the Washington defense had 3 first round NFL picks on it.
2013 vs Oregon State 5 catches 119 yards 2 TDs
2014 vs Washington 8 catches 143 yards 3 TDs
2015 vs Oregon 15 catches 246 yards 2 TDs
2016 vs Washington State 12 catches 203 yards 3 TDs
That's 175 yards and 2.5 TD's per game against competition that was probably as good as the SEC talent playing in the SWAC back in the day.
Or there was the game last year at Idaho State where he caught 14 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns but also passed and returned a punt for 2 more scores....
