46 Days

Occasionally on the days where the Cards don’t currently have a player on the roster wearing that days number I’ll try and drop an interesting fact or noteworthy stat relating to that said number. **I use the terms interesting and noteworthy very loosely**

In 1989 Carwell Gardner finished the season with 46 receptions, the most by a running back in the history of the program.

While the Satterfield offense has many wrinkles to it, one of those is not getting the running back heavily involved in the passing game. Since becoming a head coach in 2013 Satterfield has never had a back catch more than 18 passes in a single season. I think Carwell can rest easy for the time being.

Throw it deep!
