Piggy backing a bit off Dizzos thread. Who would be ur 4 faces on ur personal Mt Rushmore honoring Michigan greats. The 4 men or women that are your personal faves, regardless of sport. So many to choose from.
After much deliberation for me:
HM: Desmond Howard, Lamarr Woodley, Glen Rice, Braylon, Brady, Henson and Juwan
I'm going to answer this based on my time as a Michigan fan, so only people I saw play on TV or in person with my own eyes. Otherwise it's tough to argue against historical guys like Harmon, Yost, Crisler, Oosterbaan, etc.
Three of them would be:
- Desmond Howard
- Charles Woodson
- Glen Rice
Then if I was going players-only it would be Jalen, just something about his swagger was awesome to watch.
If I wasn't limiting it to players it would have to be Bo.
Honorable Mentions: Michael Phelps(Debatable since he really wasn't a Michigan athlete, but no doubt one of the greatest athletes ever to attend Michigan), Wheatley, Braylon (lightning rod personality since leaving keeps him off for sure, but damn was he fun to watch his senior season)
For football all-time:
But if I'm going with players, I'd say three stand out:
For hockey, I'd say:
Overall, regardless of sport...
I prefer coaches because they are able to make more of a lasting impact on the program. Players are here for 4 years and move on. Coaches define everything about the team.
HM: The ones I've mentioned, Des, Ford, Carr, Turco, Hagelin
From the players I have watched and actually remember, I would put Jake Long, Mike Hart, Brandon Graham, and Chad Henne on my Mt Rushmore.
Football is king at Michigan.
Actually, I want to add Bob Ufer to my mountain.
From players in my lifetime, I'll go:
1) Charles Woodson
2) Jake Long
3) Braylon Edwards
4) Trey Burke
Although, with a good 2013 campaign, I'd have to make room for Taylor Lewan. For him to come back with today's $ out there in the draft means a lot to Michigan.
Ha, You're going to need a bigger mountain.
Bo, Charles, AC, Cazzie, Yost, Chrysler, Harmon, Desmond, Barry Larkin, Oosterbaan, Long....

Too many to pick just four...
Can't believe no one else said Ford...
yep....great call on Ford
Players only, that I saw in my lifetime.
HM: Wheatley, Harbaugh (memories of him are faint), Biakabutuka Hart, Woodley
Novack (for where the program was when he came in to where it was when he left)
HM: Webber, Howard, Burke and Hardaway Jr. have to potential to move up also.
