Nightly Roundup: November 14, 2019

Brandon Peters got some revenge against Michigan State last weekend (LINK). Also, I hate Michigan State.

Here’s a good piece on how Hassan Haskins got recruited to Michigan (LINK).

I knew about this, but I guess I had forgotten about the controversy surrounding whether former Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne leads the NCAA all-time in rushing (LINK).

Here’s another article from The Athletic on a funny play from Auburn DT Derrick Brown (LINK).

If you’re interested in saving football, maybe the story about this Vermont town might provide a blueprint (LINK).

Ranking Michigan’s Quarterbacks

This was originally posted on March 17, 2017. It has been updated following the 2018 season.

Sports fans love to debate the greatness of players and rank them in order from most revered to most despised. And while despised probably doesn’t fit any of these players, since they played for the University of Michigan, we all have our favorites. I have endeavored to achieve the un-possible: Rank all of Michigan’s starting quarterbacks.

Okay, that’s too tall of a task for me right now. I’m working up to it. So I’m only going back to 1995, which was the beginning of the Lloyd Carr era. That’s the earliest full coaching tenure where I can count on my recollections of Michigan football. I was a big fan of Bo Schembechler, Gary Moeller, and the Michigan Wolverines before then, but I’ll be damned if I say I was aware enough to understand what was happening on the field.

This ranking only takes into account what the quarterbacks achieved wearing the winged helmet. High school highlight tapes and NFL performance aren’t taken into account. (After all, we can agree that Tom Brady is far and away the best quarterback who ever played the game of football, and that includes Uncle Rico.)

So if you were starting a season with your pick of any Michigan QB since 1995, which one would you take?

On with the show:
