U-Ms join forces, dominate All-Decade Team

The Associated Press failed to mention this in the B2 story we ran in Monday's edition, but Michigan, led by improbable Mr. Universe Tom Brady, had nearly as many former players on the NFL's All-Decade team as Miami University, no small feat.
Michigan had four, while the 'Canes placed five, led by Ray Lewis.
The accomplishment has to be attributed to the school's previous football regime, which of course was led by Lloyd Carr. The Wolverines have a long way to go if they plan on landing some players on the next team of the decade, but hey, they have 10 more years — that ought to be enough for Rich Rod to get the program back to respectability!
Michigan players on the team:

  • Tom Brady, QB, New England
  • Steve Hutchinson, G, Minnesota
  • Ty Law, CB, Denver
  • Charles Woodson, CB, Green Bay
