A great injustice that the Joe & Ebo Show won't stand for...

On December 17th, 2016, San Diego State’s Donnel Pumphrey
broke the NCAA’s all-time record for rushing yards in a career, going
for 115 yards in the Aztecs’ 34-10 win against Houston
in the Las Vegas Bowl. The senior finished his career with 6,405 yards,
topping the previous mark of 6,397 yards held by Wisconsin's Ron Dayne
If you’re thinking to yourself, ‘gosh, Dayne had more yards than that,’ you’re not wrong. While the NCAA says Dayne’s career total was 6,397, the Wisconsin record book puts it at 7,125 yards. Why the discrepancy? Well, the NCAA didn’t start counting bowl stats until 2002, meaning the 725 yards Dayne ran for his four bowl games, including three 200-yard outings, aren’t counted in the official stats.
Sign the petition and let's have the true NCAA All-time rusher, Ron Dayne, be recognized.
