Featured Fanpost: Ray Graham and the record book

Reader Lupper has a Fanpost about Pitt's Ray Graham climbing the charts as a top ten rusher in school history. To write your own Fanpost, use the link over to the right.

If he hadn't been injured in the UCONN game last season, Ray Graham would probably already stand fourth on the Pitt all-time rushing list with nearly 3,000 yards. Even with missing 5+ games last year and likely seeing limited action at least early this season, Graham should become the second leading rusher in Pitt history by the end of this season.

Every Pitt fan wants to see a healthy Ray Graham running the football at full speed. As good as the running game can be with Isaac Bennett and/or Rushel Shell, there is little doubt it would be even more lethal with Ray Graham the way he ran before the surgery. With a fairly pedestrian season, Graham can move from #10 to #2 on the career rushing list behind only Tony Dorsett.

1. Tony Dorsett 6,526 yards

2. Curvin Richards 3,192 yards (963)

3. 'Ironhead' Heyward 3,086 yards (857)

4. Deon Lewis 2,860 yards (631)

5. LeSean McCoy 2,816 yards (587)

6. Billy West 2,803 yards (574)

7. Elliot Walker 2,748 yards (519)

8. Curtis Martin 2,643 yards (414)

9. Kevin Barlow 2,438 yards (209)

10. Ray Graham 2,229 yards

As a side note .. in spite of the criticism he receives (often well deserved) .. and assuming he plays most, if not the entire season .. Tino Sunseri (5,302 yards) will finish his career as the fourth leading passer for yardage in Pitt history, easily surpassing John Congemi (6,467) and Rod Rutherford (6,724). Ahead of him and not within reach on the list will be Alex Van Pelt (11,267); Dan Marino (8,597); and Tyler Palko (8,343).
