I've seen this kid out there and have never heard the announcers call his name.
Jeremy Jackson....and I only remember 1 catch he has made
He is Borges' ace up the sleeve...he provides all the intangibles a master game planer needs
He and his dad need to leave Ann Arbor ASAP... Both are worthless.
He plays because he is the coaches son. I haven't seen him do much even when the ball was thrown his way.
A few runningbacks who have played at Michigan while Fred Jackson has been running backs coach:
He plays because Michigan doesn't have any receivers who weigh more than 175 lbs and aren't a converted QB except Jackson, Jerald Robinson, and Joe Reynolds.
Jackson splitting substantial time with those other two guys is a sign of necessity, not favoritism.
Fred Jackson has also been the lead recruiter for all the Detroit propects we land.
Hes been here for 21 years... I would hope he would have a few good RBs in that time... he has also recently had Max Martin, Kevin Grady, Sam McGuffie(who he passed on many other for) Mike Shaw, Pierre Rembert, Jerome Jackson, Carlos Brown, Brandon Minor all who were 4 stars who weren't developed into anything special... So it goes both ways
Fred has been here over 20 years and you can only name 4 above average RB's?
From 1995 - 2007, Michigan had fantastic running back play year-in, year-out. From then on, running back performance has been completely skewed by RichRod years.
There is a reason he has lasted through Moeller, Carr, Rodriguez, and Hoke's terms.
EDIT: And I would point out that Shaw and McGuffie were RichRod guys, and Brandon Minor would have been a really good back if not for misuse and injuries.
If we are talking about above average backs, you can go with this list:
