Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
ESPN has a free (!) and pretty awesome piece up right now: an All-Time Michigan football fantasy draft.
There were five participants, two of whom were Michigan players: former RB Chris Howard (leading rusher on NC '97 team), former TE Bennie Joppru (All-American TE), Tom VH, Chantel, and Rothstein.
Here's how the first three rounds went:
Round 1: QB Tom Brady, CB Charles Woodson, RB Tom Harmon, OT Jake Long, TE Ron Kramer. Round 2: OG Steve Hutchinson, WR Desmond Howard, WR Braylon Edwards, WR Anthony Carter, RB Tyrone Wheatley. Round 3: DL Lamarr Woodley, RB Anthony Thomas, LB Erick Anderson, OT Dan Dierdorf, CB Ty Law
I think players out-did the writers, as I would take Team Howard first, and Team Joppru second, although I am mystified that anyone would take Tom Brady over Woodson...Brady just wasn't that great in college.

AboutBlack and Blue- The Story of Gerald Ford, Willis Ward, and the 1934 Michigan v Georgia Tech Football Game is the latest documentary by filmmakers Brian Kruger and Buddy Moorehouse.DescriptionIn 1934, Georgia Tech came to Ann Arbor to play the University of Michigan football team in their new stadium. Georgia Tech's athletic director, William Alexander informed Michigan's AD, Fielding H. Yost, that he would need to bench Michigan's only black player, Willis Ward, or Georgia Tech would not play. Michigan chose to bench Ward, and upon hearing the news, Michigan's center, and team MVP that season threatened to quit the team if Ward was benched. That player's name was Gerald Ford, the future 38th President of the United States. The film explores the conflict, Ford's stand for his friend, and Michigan's silence that allowed this to happen to Ward. It's the story of a lifelong friendship, and college athletics in the time of Jim Crow.
It appears it's only airing in Michigan perhaps (sucks for me). Airing this Sunday, at 5:00 PM on PBS.
More Michigan players on watch lists! This time around it is Gibbons on the watch list for Lou Groza, presented annually to the nation's best placekicker.
Thought it was interesting that Eastern Michigan's Dylan Mulder is also on the list.
