I have always kind of wondered why he got drafted so late. He set Michigan's all time rush record and was an absolute beast for us. 6th round is awfully late. I think the Colts got a steal because he is going to do great things there.
New show aired last night, The Big Ten Quad, hosted by Heissman winner Eddie George.
It airs again today, at 1pm EST, on the BTN network and lists Mike Hart as a guest.
Sorry if this was posted elsewhere :)
Mike Hart is the leading rusher in Michigan football history. This is quite an achievement considering how storied a program Michigan is. In his career, Hart rushed 1,015 times for 5,040 yards. In 2004, he set a record for most yards ever by a Freshman with 1,455 yards. These are rediculous numbers. Mike Hart is and will always be an icon to Michigan Football. This season has been hard for Michigan, expecially coming off a stunning upset loss to Toledo. Who? What? It is at times like this the Mike Hart must be rememberd. A day after Michigan got beat by Toledo, Mike Hart got his second touch as an NFL football player (first touch since week 1) on the Indianapolis Colts. Be it that it only went for 2 yards and he actually fumbled on the play, it was still a large step in Mike Harts profesional football career. Don’t worry about the fumble the Colts recovered. The Colts went on to crush the Baltimore Ravens 31–3. I have been following Mike Hart on his journy from the college ranks to the NFL. I have been reading his blog. He has been fighting hard on special teams for 5 weeks now and it is good to see him get another touch, no matter the situation it was in (being that Jo Addai went down). He is still searching for his first special teams tackle. I know Michigan fans take pride in their history and their players and Mike Hart is certaintly someone worth taking pride in. So, on this weekend when Michigan is down in the dumps because they lost to some team from Toledo, lets give a shout out to Mike Hart. I am encouraging all of you to give him a shout out on his blog and tell him how much you appreicated his time at Michigan and that on weekends like this he is missed. Here is to Mike! Cheers!
I just found this, a blog by our veery own Mike Hart!
Here is a clip of one of Hart's runs yesterday. I have few others, specifically the one with his 3 consecutive carries that I'll put up tomorrow. I need some rest, I stayed up learning how to get these into the correct format...By the way, these are in HD!

Is anyone excited to see Mike Hart play this weekend? I know the game is even less important than a pre-season game, but that means he should get a lot of reps. And since he has something to prove he should be giving it his all, even if he won’t be running against a starting NFL defensive line-up. I can honestly say I’ve never watched a Hall of Fame Game. How shitty are they?
