So, nobody remembers Marquise Walker?
Played with three different QB's, in an offense that favored the run with Thomas, then Perry. Played #2 behind Terrell until '01, and still has/had records.
Certainly worth an honorable mention.

Of course, but I put Edwards, Howard, Terrell, Manningham, Carter all ahead of him. I know, he left Michigan as their all time receptions leader, but these guys stood out more to me.
I would put him in a tier with Streets, Toomer, Avant...
Yes Denard throws some picks but you can't deny the highlight reel that he is. Also look where he ranks on the passing records and rushing records already...its ridiculous. Can I add John Cooper from ohio to my favorites as well. Man was a blessing.

Yeah the reason is a bunch of guys in the room with comments like you just made. How do you think they feel about it now that he is kicking their ?
I definitely remember his catch against Iowa
That's an unbelievable catch!
Still taking Brady.
Oh yeah I remember that as well. I was watching the game in a sports bar down here with four Hawkeye fans sitting right next to me. The look on their face when he made that catch was unbelievable. Another game I remember watching at that same bar was the 2004 MSU game. Probably forty Sparty fans there doing a train around the bar when they were whipping us in the first half, probably the most obnoxious thing I have ever seen a fan base do in public. When Edwards made the catch at the end of the third overtime there wasn't one of them left in the bar. PRICELESS!
Man, it seems like everybody has a story about sparty making an ass out of themself during that game. One of my BILs stated he won't ever talk crap during the game again. He hasn't been the same regarding Michigan/MSU since Edwards ripped his heart out.
Harmon >> Troy Smith and Rex Kern combined, no flame.
There is a reason why Harmon is the only player ever to get a standing Ovation from the entire Ohio State Stadium after beating them 40-0. During his final game against Ohio State, he ran for three TDs, threw two passing TDs, kicked four extra points, INT 3 passes, and punted the ball three times for an average of 50 yards. He was that incredible.
He was an Heisman/Maxwell winner and he led the nation in scoring in 1939 and 1940 (has yet to happen again), and he never lost to Ohio State.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Tom Harmon .... before his time ... could fly over defenders.
Tyrone Wheatley ... rushes for 200+ yards in bowl games ... does not break a sweat.
Anthony Carter ... could catch anything ... 79' Indiana game.
Steve Hutchinson ... no one made it by him.
Charles Woodson ... nuff said.
Coaching staff ... :)
Bo, Yost, and Crisler.

That single game could put him at #1 the rest of that knowledge is icing lots and lots of icing. What a man!
I don't know who would be on my list of greatest Wolverines ever, but I do know for a fact that Harmon will always be #1 on that list. Him and Fielding Yost do not get enough credit and respect in these kind of conversations and debate.
If you are interested, here is some game film from the 1940 Michigan-OSU game highlighting Harmon.
The only known footage of Old 98's performance against the Buckeyes in Columbus in 1940. Though, there are some highlights missing. In this game, Harmon...
*Passed for 151 yards and 2 touchdowns
*Rushed for 139 yards and 2 touchdowns
*Averaged 50 yards a punt
*Scored 4 extra points
*Intercepted 3 passes, 1 of them for a 5th touchdown
In the closing moments, Fritz Crisler pulled Harmon from the game and 70,000 Buckeye fans actually gave Tom a standing ovation. Harmon won the Heisman trophy the following month.

Little error on my stats here:
He ran for only two rushing TDs, not three like I said earlier. I was confusing myself, he had another TD coming from a returned INT instead.
I know I've posted it before, but this is just fun to watch
A new tribute to Tyrone Wheatley with more clips.
Wheatley was such a beast. Him, Charles and Desmond need to be in the top 5 of all time for sure.
