Rushing for 1,000 yards or catching 1,000 receiving yards in the SEC is not an easy feat. In arguably the strongest defensive league in the country, yards are at a premium.

In 2011, we had the following 1,000-yard club members at the RB position:

  • Trent Richardson – 1679 yards
  • Michael Dyer – 1242 yards
  • Zac Stacy – 1193 yards
  • Vick Ballard – 1189 yards

At the WR position, we had just two members:

  • Jarius Wright – 1117 yards
  • Da’Rick Rogers – 1040 yards

As we close in on the end of the 2012 season, in the rushing department, the likely members are:

  • Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M) – 1014 yards, on pace for 1212 rushing yards
  • Todd Gurley (Georgia) – 973 yards, on pace for 1265 (including an SEC Championship Game performance)
  • Mike Gillislee (Florida) – 872 yards, on pace for 1010 yards (though faces a stingy FSU defense next week)
  • Kendial Lawrence (Mizzou) – 819 yards, will need a good two weeks to hit 1000 yards.

At the WR position, the likely members are:

  • Cobi Hamilton (Arkansas) – 1149 yards, on pace for 1379 yards
  • Jordan Matthews (Vandy) – 1003 yards, on pace for 1201 yards
  • Justin Hunter (Tenn) – 979 yards, on pace for 1175 yards
  • Mike Evans (Texas A&M) – 872 yards, on pace for 1010 yards
  • Ryan Swope (Texas A&M) - 752 yards, probably will finish under 1000 yards
