There Are Ty Law 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.

Before Charles Woodson arrived in 1995, Ty Law was instilling terror into the hearts of Michigan's foes. Law had the privilege of being on the same teams with the likes of Jon Runyan, Rod Payne, Tyrone Wheatley, Elvis Grbac, and many other legends. Not only did he ascend to All-American and All-Big Ten status as a cornerback, but he had the talent to play inside linebacker as well if the scheme called for his services.

Law's sophomore season was by far Gary Moeller's most talented team, and despite three ties during the regular season, Michigan got to the Rose Bowl to face a Washington team filled with All-Americans and NFL draft picks-in-waiting.
