There Are Bennie Joppru Days to Michigan Football

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.

Michigan has had some great tight ends in the past 20 or so seasons, and Bennie Joppru is no exception. Arriving after the national championship cooled, he was part of some terrific Michigan teams as a starter. Joppru's senior year yielded an awesome performance in the 2002 Outback bowl against Florida, and got him a Michigan record for season receptions at that position.
