In yesterday's post on Kay being named AAC player of the week I mentioned that Kay is close to completing one of the all time great single seasons in UC history. What I didn't mention is that Kay's season to great is very close to being the best in school history.

|Greg Cook (1968)||411||219||3272||25||17||8.0||131.96|
|Danny McCoin (1986)||369||237||2831||13||11||7.7||134.33|

|Ben Mauk (2007)||386||235||3121||31||9||8.1||160.64|
|Tony Pike (2009)||338||211||2520||29||6||7.5||149.82|
|Zach Collaros (2010)||383||225||2902||26||14||7.6||137.49|
|Brendon Kay (2013)||319||224||2799||22||9||8.8||161.04|
The numbers are very strongly in Kay's favor, particularly the efficiency numbers of yards per attempt and QB Rating. With two games to play Kay needs 35 completions, 745 yards and 10 touchdowns to come away with single season records in those categories. The completions record will almost certainly be his by the first quarter of the bowl game. The yards and touchdown records would require monster games yes, but are plausible give Kay's play of late.
So Bearcat fans who you got for the best single season for a bearcat quarterback?
