Ty Law to be Michigan honorary captain in 2019

A hall of famer is headed to The Big House in October

AFC Championship: Colts v Patriots

Former Michigan cornerback and 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Ty Law will be an honorary captain for Michigan football this upcoming season.

Law will be the captain against Iowa at The Big House on October 5th.

“It’s been so long,” Law said on the Harbaugh’s Podcast. “I’ve been so busy and playing I haven’t got a chance to get back as much as I would like. To have this opportunity and be a part of homecoming, to come down that tunnel — hopefully I get this back taken care of, so I can go there and jump up and hit the (banner). I ain’t got any hops right now, my back is killing me.

“I’m going to enjoy it and live through the guys out there. I’m a part of it. I’m a part of that tradition. I’m a part of coming down there and upsetting so many teams, especially Ohio State and Michigan State. I’m embedded in the University of Michigan.”

Law also said that “We going to go out and whoop some Iowa ass.”

We’ll see if that is true in October.
