[Bumped, but let's let Mr. Harty decide if DJK's actually With The Program first, sir. He's the expert.--OPS]
Let’s look at how he’s doing with the potential chase for the all time receiving record oft-talked about in the offseason.
Post Michigan game, he now sits at 1,322 career receiving yards, 949 yards behind Tim Dwight’s career Iowa record of 2,271. Assuming Iowa makes a bowl game this year and next, and assuming DJK fights off injuries, that leaves 20 games left in his Iowa career. He would need to average only 47.45 yards/game to surpass Dwight on the all time list.
Post Michigan, he has 93 career receptions, 64 receptions behind Kevin Kasper’s career record of 157 receptions. Using the same assumptions, DJK would need to average 3.2 receptions/game in order to lead Iowa all time in receptions.
I for one am excited to see that DJK is healthy and back “with the Program.” I hope he gets a jump start on reaching these career achievements this week at Wisconsin.
