By the Numbers: Production dips after record-setting day

Fifth-year senior wide receiver Jeremy Gallon joined an exclusive list of Wolverines with more than 150 yards receiving (35 total occurrences) when he racked up 184 in the win over Notre Dame. But if history is any indication, he may not be in line for another career day this coming weekend.

  • Among the top 20-receiving yard outputs by a Michigan receiver, end, tight end, not one followed it up with a greater tally the following week. In fact, only once (Braylon Edwards in 2004) did a receiver even break 100 yards.

  • The other 19 receivers on the list shared by Gallon totaled 996 yards in their next game, or an average of 52.4 yards receiving, down from an average of 180.6 yards in their record-setting performance.

  • Production, on average, dropped by 71 percent. With Braylon Edwards (37 percent drop), Desmond Howard (49 percent) and Jack Clancy (51 percent drop) experiencing the smallest production dip.

  • After posting 169 yards in a 1955 win over Iowa, end Tom Maentz did not record a single catch the following week against Illinois while Roy Roundtree, who holds the single-game record, had only 69 yards a week after stockpiling 246 in 2010.
