    When was the criteria for "single-season" records changed to include bowl games?

    I think single-season records have always included bowl games.

    No, it was only within the last decade or so that the change was made.

    Very recently - this decade, though I couldn't give you the exact year.

    School I covered had a receiver break a years-old record. So I called the guy whose record got broken and he noted, correctly, that the guy had three extra games to do what he did in 11: A 12-game regular season, one of those "preseason exempt" games and a bowl game.

    They did not make it retro, I don't think. Shouldn't they go back and add in bowl stats of those who played before the rule?

    You'd like to think they would, but no. That would be the right thing to do.

    A good quarterback in a good program could lose a lot of yards with 3-4 bowl games not counting.
