Exit Interview: Roy Roundtree

Submitted by Moleskyn on February 11th, 2013 at 2:50 PM

Rothstein did a good interview with 'Tree over at WN (LINK, $). It's worth the read; I know I always appreciate hearing the players' views on the program and their perspective on the things we watch and discuss. I know I had big expectations for him coming off his sophomore season, and he didn't exactly live up to them, but he was always a hard worker and his final numbers are nothing to shake a stick at:

Roundtree's flip ended up a major benefit for Michigan. The No. 104 receiver in the Class of 2008, Roundtree ended up as the only receiver in Michigan history to have 200 yards in one game (246 against Illinois in 2010). He finished his career sixth in catches (154), sixth in yards (2,304) and tied for 11th in touchdowns (15).

And, uh, is this a typo?

That game really showed I really wanted to bounce back, because the year before I was the slow receiver who got humped down by a guy. I set my mind to it that I would never get humped again. That was my goal.

Good luck 'Tree, wherever you go!

He is a class act who worked hard to boost his academic skills and never put himself ahead of the team.

Even when a big season was followed by marginal touches, he stayed positive. Glad the snake oil flipped him!

NOt taking anything away from Tree, but the fact that he set the records fr yards in one game by a reciever in Michigan history speaks volumes about how great that offense was. God damn dammity damn damn GERG. Think of if we had kept Shafer and let him hire his own staff? Oh, I hate my brain.
