Solid choices, and I like that they're all seniors. Hopefully they can guide our team to a successful year, and end their Michigan careers on a high note!

Great choices....all high character guys who are also key contributors on the field.  It is exciting that we are going back to the tradition of players voting on captains, prior to the season...as we had for nearly 130 seasons prior to the debacle.  Go Blue..!

All great choices.  I think RVB and Denard would have also been fantastic.  Especially RVB. He's been through a lot on that defense over the years, and still has a great additude.

Great to see the three. Koger has had three different QBs throwing him the ball and run pretty different versions of the spread in his years at UM, and the guy just produces. I know we always talk about Molk and Martin, but I'm very happy that Koger was also recognized.

I expect all of these guys to perform at a high level this season. Molk and Martin are beasts and Koger has the potential to blow up in this offense. Congrats to all of them and here's to a great season!

GO BLUE
