Not really trying to create a discussion, more about posting an excellent video collecting "recent era" Michigan Running Backs.
But I will state, that as much as I respect Mike Hart's dedication and durability, he's not the best Michigan Running back.
Certainly Wolverin Historian could have influenced things by his selection, but I never heard the announcer say, "it's going to be a foot race" during any of Hart's runs.
Not only did I hear that for Wheatley and Thomas, but frequently the foot race was won by the running back and not the defensive back.
even Leroy Hoard had break away speed that Hart never possessed.
Hart got the yards, that is clear. But I'd love to see the analysis of average per carry, versus the key rivalries/top competition between Hart and the other key Michigan Running backs.
And I can't forgive him the two fumballs against Florida. Those were pure ego.
