There Are 87 Days to Michigan Football

New, 1 comment

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

Jamie Morris was the go-to running back for the 1987 team. Give him a hole and he finds the endzone, and his senior year, he did it a lot. He's still third all time for season yards (1,703 behind Thomas and Biakabatuka), and fourth all-time for career yards at 4,393. Once I met Jamie Morris in the athletic department offices, and he can still bust open a defense if given the chance. Ageless wonder, that one.
