He is currently 2nd behind Adam Weber in both categories.

Morgan's best season in 2019 he threw for over 3,200 yards and 30 touchdowns.

Thoughts?

If he stays healthy, he should. If not, then the Gophers probably aren't going to do the things we hope they do.

I think Athan takes this offence to a whole nother level... However Morgan is the incumbent starter. I think we see Athan some this season tho

Leidnuts forever. 7 on 7? None better. Off season? He’s making all the plays. Game time? Flatter than hwy 80 in IA.

I would say yes for the TD's.

The yardage will be close. He needs 2,845 to tie Weber. That is a pretty solid season.

So, what the heck - let's hope for the best:

with the final pass of his Gopher Career, Morgan will throw a TD pass to CrAB to break the yardage record and win the Bowl game, and his teammates will carry him off the field.

What have you seen in the last five years of Gopher football that makes you think that Fleck will want Athan on the field for more than a series of kneel downs at the end of a blowout?

Morgan hasn't been hurt. Odds are high that he will be somewhere along the line.

Good shot at the TD record , I think. If the ground game is lights out, it will be a big challenge to achieve. Including a bowl game he would need a 230 yard average per game.

Yardage one will be tough.
Yardage number is tough just because we don't need 230 yards most games to win. A typical good win this year should need about 200 yards passing along with 250 rushing, complimented by 50 yards of kick return. That's good for about 35 points.

Safe enough with a defense giving up something in the teens.

2900 yards
He had 3250 last time he was with this OC
He had 1374 in 7 games in 2020 (on pace for 2550 in a 13 game season)
He had 2000 last year but it was a big enough disaster to fire the Oc


It’ll be close but i predict between 2800-3200 in 14 games
I see what you did there...

I’ll be happy with either, but I’d expect the TD record and a shot at the yardage. I was kind of thinking our success is predicated on our ground game this season, but then again if we play more like 2019 we could have a shot at another magical year. Let’s just do both and win it all!

After being QB1 for the majority of 5 seasons, I’d expect Morgan to own all the passing records.

200 a game x 15 games = 3000! Problem solved!

Weber played in 50 games, Morgan 43. Their respective stats:

Weber
50 games
1594 attempts
57.0 comp rate
6.8 ypa
72 TDs
51 interceptions
123.1 passer rating

Morgan
43 games
903 attempts
61.4 completion rate
8.9 ypa
56 TDs
27 interceptions
150.9 passer rating

Weber suffered under Jedd Fisch. Morgan suffered under Sanford (as did we all). I expect Morgan to not only break Weber’s records but by a comfortable margin. Fair to argue who is “better” as running ability matters to some degree. Will Ciarrocca undo the damage to the offense - magic 8 ball says yes.

Of interest to me is whether phenom Knuth will overtake Kaliakmanis in the eye of the coaches. There can be only one…

Will he do it in 50 games? Do you think the yardage record as well?

The better question might be could he do it (yards and TDs) in 1594 attempts. Yes?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Sure. 2022 will be telling for Morgan’s legacy. This season could be culmination of classic first, second, third act story arc if all goes well.

Yeah, both would be a stretch, I think. If he stays on his current attempts/TD ratio, he'll get that one easily...in lees than 1200 attempts if my math is correct.
