Of course a quarterback with the name "Elvis" had to become a Michigan legend. Third all-time in Michigan's books for career yards, career pass attempts, and completions, Grbac can be considered the first in a long line of fine Michigan pocket passers, slinging arrows all over the field to a cadre of receiving talent. Bo Schembechler had run a pro power set/wishbone type of offense that left when Jim Harbaugh and Demetrius Brown left Ann Arbor. Grbac marked the shift to the pro set offense that Al Borges is moving back to this season.
Elvis may have left the building, but his stamp on Michigan's passing records and play style remains even today.
