Over the course of the next few weeks I will be revealing my choices for the 15 best Michigan football players on offense and defense, as well as the five best special teams players, from 1994-2008? Why the last 15 years? Well, for one, it’s a nice round number. Also, 1994 was the first season I had season tickets to Michigan Stadium, so that (otherwise relatively unremarkable) year has special meaning to this life-long Wolverine.
I will reveal one offensive and one defensive pick each day (in reverse order, because, you know, suspense), as well as my reasoning for the placement of each player. Tomorrow I will unveil my list of the five best special teamers to help satisfy your football appetite. At the end of the entire process, I will also post the lists of staff members from The Wolverine, who undoubtedly have much more legitimate opinions than yours truly.
I am also inviting you, the reader, to submit your own list to me. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your 15 best offensive and defensive players (as well as your five special teamers) who played any time from 1994-2008. After my list is complete, I will put up the fan’s chioces for the best Wolverines of the last decade-and-a-half.
I’m looking forward to receiving your submissions, as well as embarassing myself with a woefully idiotic list that will surely be picked apart by my much smarter audience (Reuben Riley was All-Big Ten, right?).
