    How many more years do we have Fenroy? I would love to see him run with a passing threat.

    2 more years with Fenroy and 3 more with Wallace!
    2 with Desormeaux
    3 with Hunley

    ps Many years more with the Indoor Practice Facility, Enlarged Weightroom, and many other improvements that have been completed and are yet to come.

    UL Football With 1 game to geaux Fenroy has 2nd best seaon ever

    I updated the 2nd chart as Fenroy moved him into the 2nd best rushing season ever for a Ragin' Cajun. And he has at least a game to geaux.

    Whether or not Fenroy ever has a better overall rushing season than Brian Mitchell only time will tell. One thing for sure the 2 backs (Q&R) rank as UL greats.

    Since Fenroy's 2,132 career yards are only 1,203 yards behind Brian Mitchell's 3,335 rushing yards, it seems very possible that a healthy Tyrell Fenroy with 2 years and a game left can end up as UL's all time leading rusher.

    It's kind of ironic but this eeek in history links the 2 UL greats as well. 19 years ago this week Brian Mitchell had a career day as well.

  6. This week in 1987 vs Colorado State, Brian Mitchell rushed for 271 yards and 4 touchdowns.
  7. This week in 2006 vs Arkansas State, Tyrell Fenroy rushed for 178 yards and 3 touchdowns..
