Michigan Football: Twelve Wondrous Wolverines — NOW It Is Your Turn GBMWolverine Members
The twelve Wondrous Wolverine series is complete and it is the hope that you all read and enjoyed the effort. Now it is up to the readers to pick a 13th Wolverine to finish the baker’s dozen. There are still plenty of very deserving players from Michigan’s past, perhaps a coach as well.
Ron Kramer and Jim Mandich were so important to Michigan football. There are a ton of offensive linemen including Elliott, Baas, McKenzie, Bubba Paris, Jansen, Long and Dierdorf that made a big impact on Wolverine history.
Michigan was known as quarterback U by some, but that mantra has faded away. Quarterbacks that have clearly made a mark on Michigan football would include Jim Harbaugh, Elvis Grbac, Chad Henne, Rick Leach, Dennis Franklin, and semi-quarterback Shoelace Robinson.
There are wide receivers such as Braylon Edwards, Toomer, Terrell, and Walker that are certainly deserving of high consideration.
The running back stable is still full of high-level contributors including Hart, Hoard, Woolfolk, Perry, Lytle, Ron Johnson, Anthony Thomas, and Morris.
Linebackers that were impact players include Sam Sword, Jarrett Irons, Larry Foote, Erick Anderson, Ian Gold, and Ron Simpkins.
The defensive line should include as candidates workhorse Rob Renes, Glen Steele, Chris Hutchinson, Lamar Woodley, Brandon Graham, Mike Hammerstein, and Mike Martin.
Now, GBMWolverine asks that you respond with a nomination for the 13th Wolverine and please give short support for your choice. We will leave this thread open for at least a week, perhaps longer.
