LSU quarterback Joe Burrow broke Rohan Davey's 2001 single-season passing record (3,347) on Saturday night vs. Ole Miss and stands at 3,687 through 10 games.

On Sunday, Davey congratulated Burrow on setting the new record with this message on Facebook and video on Twitter:

Ro was fun to watch! A classy move on his part. And he is right about that '01 team being the one that brought the Tigers to the last 18 years...

Rohan said before the season that Joe would break the record this year. Ro knew...

Rohan was the QB when I first started watching LSU as a kid.

Imagine Josh Reed in this offense!!!

Reed is my favorite Tiger because I believe he was one of the best to play the game in college at his position. But after this year, he may drip to 1 b behind Burrow. Lol

Ro had some touch. He would have loved this offense.

He would have loved this offense, Mettenberger would have loved this office, OBJ and Jarvis Landry would have loved this offense, Rueben Randle, Wendell Davis, Early Doucet, Josh Reed, Terrence Tolilver, Russell Shepard, Trendon Holliday, Demetrius Byrd etc etc etc This offense with the 2011 team defense would have hoisted the trophy in New Orleans. Make no mistake.

Few QB threw the long ball as well, and as high, as Rohan did.

Can’t say it enough, Rohan is a class act. I wish his pro career would have lasted longer, but he does have those two rings.

Classy dude, enjoyed watching him throw the ball all over the field that year.

With 300-lb DL hanging on him and with a hobbled knee/ankle(?) he would still flick his wrist and send a dart down the field 40+ yards (most likely to Josh Reed). Rohan THE MAN!!!
