In the wake of yesterday’s ninth inning melt down, let’s talk some football. With the D’Backs in town, I thought it might be fun to take a look at Jeff Samardzija versus Kirk Gibson on the grid iron. Both were outstanding receivers. here are the numbers:
Gibson @ Michigan State 1975-78
2347 Receiving yards
16 carries for 144 yds.
Total Yards 2491
Samardzija @ Notre Dame 2003-2006
13 Carries for 19 yds
Total Yards 2602.
Gibson led the Big Ten in receptions in 1976.
Samardzija was a consensus All- American in 2005 and finished second in the nation in receiving TD’s
And now back to your regularly scheduled baseball season.
