The Michigan Wolverines will have a special honorary captain against Colorado in the form of legendary quarterback Tom Brady.

UM plays Colorado at home on Sept. 17, while the New England Patriots play at home against the Dolphins the following day. However, Brady is suspended for the first four games of the NFL season due to #DeflateGate.

Brady needs no introduction as a four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback. He played for Michigan from 1995 to 1999, serving as a backup on the 1997 national championship team and leading the team to an Orange Bowl victory as a senior.

Brady has some big shoes to fill though as honorary team captain. Michael Jordan gets the honors in week one.
