Harder to bring down than an elder bantha, impervious to fumbling, and better at smack-talking than anyone, Mike Hart carved up the Michigan record books and did it while standing up. Seriously, did he ever go down besides when he was diving into end zones? Without him, there's no "little brother" spat, no time capsule-worthy victory over Urban Meyer in the Capitol One Bowl, and certainly no shot at the national championship in 2006.
Hart broke defenses and records, and then reminded you what he just did to your face if you were the poor fool who had to wrestle him out of bounds. In due time, he'll be back at Michigan, teaching fresh running backs how to carry the ball a million times without dropping it, but until then we can only reminisce about his Michigan exploits.
