There have been many great offensive players to come through this program. You could make a great argument for Denard being the greatest. With his 67-yard TD run in the 1st half, he became the all-time leader in touchdowns at Michigan.
He needs something on the order of 150 yards in the bowl game.
If his output in the 2nd half was as good as the first he would basically be handed the record in the bowl game =(
He needs 85 more to tie Pat White if my math is correct.
Pat White: 4,480
Denard: 4,273 (through Iowa) + 122 (against ohio today) = 4,395

Good for him. Great player. Awesome individual and hero to all who braved the last five years. Get healthy kid. The nfl will be even better once you're a part.
A great job by Denard. I can't wait to see him in the bowl game.
My all-time favorite Wolverine. So sad to see him not out on the field (as RB, with Devin at QB) during the last drive against OSU as a senior. I realize he missed a block earlier, but taking him out of the game completely, except for telegraphed runs in which we removed Devin, was madness.
Wish I had gotten to see him play more today.
I would not put him with Woodson, Harmon, and many others. I do however think the world of the young man as a player and as a representative of the university.
Very happy for Denard to have reached this milestone, even if the team fell short today. Go Blue!
