Brandon Graham, Brandon Minor, Carlos Brown, David Cone, David Mooseman, Greg Matthews, Jason Olesnavage, Kevin Grady, LaTerryal Savoy, Mark Ortmann, Ohene Opong-Owusu, Ricky Reyes, Stevie Brown, Tim McAvoy, Tim North, Zac Baker, Zoltan Mesko

While it may not be the greatest senior class in Michigan history these guys will all be missed on some level. I'll never forget Brandon Graham's incredible motor and leadership. I'll always remember the punishing running style of Brandon Minor. I'll remember David Cone for being a straight up baller in the rap studio. Whatever it is you remember about these guys feel free to share some of your favorite seniors best moments.

Thank you seniors for all the hard work you put in trying to get Michigan headed in the right direction through a very tough transition. I respect each and every one of you. God Bless.

At least this class has been to a Rose Bowl, that has to count for something. Pity that they have never beaten OSU and didn't go to a bowl their last two years. That probably wasn't what they thought would happen when they came here. Still, this was a solid class, a couple of future NFLers, and a group of great people. I wish the best to these Michigan men.

Thank you and god bless guys. I just feel so bad for em. Brandon Graham never got to beat osu, Brandon Minor didn't even get to play in his last game ='(. Just like Jason Avant got hurt on the 3rd play in 2003.

It was really sad to see how this season turned out for Minor and Brown. I loved the way Minor played, its a shame he couldn't go today. Brown showed potential his whole career, but couldn't stay healthy. I hate to see them go out without playing in the game today.

This class should stand out as one of the better classes in the history of the school. Now many of you are probably wondering why I've put them there considering the immensely talented classes that have come before (and surely after) them, but what they went through puts them near the top of my list. They watched this program fall and have helped lay the framework for a new era of Michigan football. They didn't quit when many of their teammates gave up and transferred and quit. They took so much heat and blame, and yet still showed great class and resolve. Thanks to all those seniors, we will miss you dearly.

It was great to see Stevie Brown have a decent year. I consider him to have redeemed himself from last year's scapegoat status.

Those who stayed might not have been Big Ten champions, but I would be willing to bet they will be champions after football.
