All-Time Season Tackle for Loss Leaders

All-Time Season Tackle for Loss Leaders


August 22, 2020
Shawn Crable

Last week I posted about the career TFL leaders (LINK).

This week is the top TFL seasons in Michigan history:

  1. 28.5 – Shawn Crable (2007)
  2. 26.0 – Brandon Graham (2009)
  3. 21.0 – Larry Foote (2001)
  4. 20.0 – Brandon Graham (2008)
  5. 18.5 – Khaleke Hudson (2017)
  6. 18.0 – Chase Winovich (2017)
  7. 17.0 – Mike McCray II (2017)
  8. 17.0 – Chase Winovich (2018)
  9. 16.0 – James Hall (1998)
  10. 16.0 – LaMarr Woodley (2004)
  11. 16.0 – Jake Ryan (2012)
  12. 15.5 – Ben Gedeon (2015)
  13. 15.5 – Jabrill Peppers (2015)
  14. 15.0 – LaMarr Woodley (2006)
  15. 14.5 – Chris Wormley (2015)
  16. 14.5 – Maurice Hurst, Jr. (2017)
  17. 14.0 – Glen Steele (1997)
  18. 14.0 – David Harris (2006)
  19. 14.0 – Jake Ryan (2014)
  20. 13.5 – Frank Clark (2014)
  21. 13.5 – Taco Charlton (2016)
  22. 13.0 – Dhani Jones (1999)
  23. 13.0 – Victor Hobson (2002)
  24. 13.0 – Pierre Woods (2003)
  25. 13.0 – Mike McCray II (2016)

It’s crazy to think how ridiculous of a season Shawn Crable had back in 2007. It’s also interesting to see how many of these players put together these excellent seasons in one year. For example, that 2017 squad had the #5, #6, and #7 seasons all-time at Michigan.

    I swear I just saw someone else’s comment on here about the amount of talent in 2017. I don’t know where it went, but I don’t want to pretend I did this without first seeing their take.

    After relooking this list, it is amazing that 2017 had #5, 6, 7, and 16 on this list.

    The next best is 2015 with #12, 13, and 15.

    Besides those, only 2006, 2014, and 2016 have two players on the list, and every other year has just one if that year even made the list.

    I don’t know if some of these recent years speak to the progress under Harbaugh, or the ability of Hoke to recruit. I am also not sure if having multiple people in a given year make this list is more impressive, demonstrating the wealth of talent, or if it is more impressive for say Shawn Crable or Brandon Graham to be the only one on the list for the year, but absolutely CRUSH IT.

    Off the top of my head, I think Crable and Graham are more indicative of the lack of surrounding talent, but I am still not sure where to go with how well 2015 and 2017 put out.

    Thoughts?

      I think it’s largely the ability of Harbaugh/Durkin/Brown to coach defensive players, but you have to give credit to Hoke. He was able to identify talent. He just wasn’t great at developing it.

    fyi gedeon posted those big #s in 16, not 15. bc i recall being amazed every week in 15 when guys like bolden, morgan, ross, gant continued to earn more PT than a healthy, athletically superior gedeon. at least don brown took advantage the next year
