Made to be Broken

You know what they say about records, so here are some current Wolverines with chances at breaking Michigan records (be it Monday or next year).

Mike Hart

The junior tailback now has 1515 yards on the season and 3632 yards for his career. His single season total is the 5th best in Michigan history and he needs 159 to catch Chris Perry for #4, 188 to catch Jamie Morris for #3, and 218 to catch Anthony Thomas for #2. His career rushing total is 6h best in Michigan history and he can catch Chris Perry for #5 with only 64 more yards. He only needs 840 yards to tie Anthony Thomas for the #1 overall spot in Michigan history and barring injury, that seems like a lock next year as he has a very real chance to crack the 5000 yard barrier.

Mike Hart also has 14 rushing TDs this year and 27 for his career. He needs 1 more TD to tie Anthony Thomas for the 5th most in a single season in Michigan history. His 27 career rushing TDs are 9th best in Michigan history and he can surpass quite a few people before his career is over. He'll catch Gordon Bell with 1, Butch Woolfolk with 2, Billy Taylor with 3, and Steve Smith with 4. He needs 12 more to catch Chris Perry for #3 all time behind Tyrone Wheatley and Anthony Thomas.

Hart is now up to 19 career 100 yard rushing games which places him 3rd on Michigan's all time list needing only 3 more to catch Anthony Thomas for #1 all time. Hart can also tie Jamie Morris with 10 games of 100 yards rushing in a single season if he has a big Rose Bowl. He also has 8 career 150 yard rushing games which puts him just one behind Anthony Thomas for the #1 all time mark at Michigan. His 4 career 200 yard rushing games already hold the Michigan all time record.

Chad Henne

Chad is now up to 7468 career passing yards and 68 career passing touchdowns. He only needs 1786 yards to catch John Navarre for the all time Michigan lead and 3 TDs to catch Grbac for #2 on the list and 4 TDs to catch Navarre for #1 on the list. Henne also is down to 22 TD passes needed to catch Drew Brees for the all time Big Ten record and will likely fall just short of Brees all time Big Ten record for passing yardage.

Mario Manningham

Manningham has 9 TD catches on the season and 15 for his young career. Mario just needs 1 more TD to catch Braylon Edwards for the 10th best single season in Michigan history and 2 more would put him into a tie for the 6th best season in Michigan history. For his career, Manningham is now up to a tie for 10th best of all time in receiving TDs and only 8 more would put him all the way up to 4th behind Edwards, Carter, and Howard. If Manningham stays for 4 years, he has an outside shot at Braylon Edwards Big Ten and Michigan record of 39 career TD catches.

LaMarr Woodley

Woodley sits at 11 sacks and 14 TFL on the season and 22 sacks and 46 TFL for his career. He only needs 1 sack to tie the Michigan single season record and he needs 2 sacks to get to 3rd best in Michigan career history and 3 sacks to get to #2 in the all time record book. When it comes to TFL, he is 4th on Michigan's career list and can climb all the way to #2 with only 2 more TFL against USC. Woodley's 123 yards lost on TFL this season is already the best in Michigan history (by 1 yard over Jason Horn in 1995) and his 111 yards lost just on sacks is far and away the best in Michgian history in a single season ahead of Chris Hutchinson's 99 yards lost in 1992.

LaMarr Woodley also has 4 fumble recoveries on the season which places him in a tie for 3rd best single season in Michigan history and he needs 1 more to move into a tie for the best of all time.

Leon Hall

Leon Hall has 15 pass break ups this season and 31 for his career. Leon only needs 3 PBUs to move from #2 to #1 all time on the Michigan single season list alongside Marlin Jackson in 2002. He also needs 3 more to tie Marlin Jackson for #2 on the Michigan career list behind Todd Howard's 41. Leon Hall also has 3 INTs on the season and 12 for his career. His career total is #4 all time and he only needs 1 more to move to #3 on the career list.

Garrett Rivas

Garrett already has the career Michigan record with 63 career field goals made (tied with Remy Hamilton at #1). He also is the #2 career leader in field goal percentage at 77.8% (for players with at least 20 attempts) just behind Remy Hamilton at 83.3%. Garrett's 161 made PATs in his career are best in Michigan history (JD Carlson's 137). There really isn't a whole lot left for him to do in the record books once he gets one more FG to break the tie with Hamilton.

Steve Breaston

Steve already holds the Michigan career record with 1941 KR yards and 1599 PR yards. The punt return mark is also a Big Ten career record. He already joined Wisconsin's Nick Davis as the only players in Big Ten history to record at least 1000 yards in 3 different career categories (KR, PR, receiving). He also holds the Rose Bowl single game record with 315 all purpose yards in his last appearance in Pasadena so we'll see if he can top that on Monday.
