Yes. Guessing most of the passing ones will, since the game is evolving more in that direction every year. And Henry’s career rushing yard record isn’t really that impressive of a number. One would think UT would have someone with 4,000 yards at this point. Hurd would have if he’d stayed 4 years.

There are certainly some on there that are attainable. My list of possibilities:
Career Field Goal %
Longest Pass Play
Single Season Passing Yards
Single Game Receiving Yards
Career Receiving Yards

I don't see any of the rushing ones being broken any time soon. Most of the defensive ones seem pretty tough to break as well.

Crazy thing about Kelly Washington vs LSU, if I recall correctly, LSU lined up on defense at least 3 or 4 times without even having coverage on Washington who was split wide out. I was at the game and the crowd was going nuts for us to throw to him. I know they didn't throw to him the first 2 times it happened but I can't remember after that.

I believe any season record can be broken but career records will be tuff to break. Today’s players that have great stats for 3 years are probably going pro and taking the money. This one time COVID rule could given some players 5 years of stats, but then again, I think if they are good enough to set a TENN career record they are gone to play for money. Don’t blame them at all.

How about fewest passing yards allowed in a season, fewest touchdowns allowed in a season, fewest points allowed in a season, fewest pass completions against us in a season, etc.. I don't know what those records are now but I imagIne some go way back.

Longest Rush will never be broken, only tied. The ones that have always seemed impossible to break are the Spiva tackles records. He averaged 136.75 tackles/season over a 4 year career and 17.6 tackles/gm in 1976. I believe both of those tackles records are SEC records too.
Kelsey’s 99 yard run against Florida was a thing of beauty. I was sitting in the North end zone and never through he could run 99 yards without being caught. He was not the fastest of running backs and Florida had a few speedy DDs.

Andy Spiva’s records will be the most difficult to break. I knew his mother, Betty, well and she was so proud of him. It is a shame that his NFL career was cut so quickly by his death in a traffic accident. We planted a tree beside Stokely in his honor. I think it has been destroyed during all the renovations which have occurred in the last few years.
