Bo's Warriors-Part 4

                                            Introduction of “Bo’s Warriors” to be continued (4)

Michael Fred Phelps11, collected 22 Olympic medals, of which 18 are gold. He was a world record holder in the 100 m butterfly; 200 m butterfly and 400 m individual medley. Michael has attained more Olympic medals than anyone else, and has doubled the number of the individual second place record holder. He has also attained 71 international long course competition medals as well. There is still some mystery as to whether he will compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics. From 1900-2012, Michigan athletes have attained 149 Olympic medals, of which 72 are gold.

If you are a basketball junkie, you might remember Cazzie Russell’s exploits and his team’s battle with John Wooden’s UCLA Bruins in the NCAA championship game in 1965. In 1966, Russell was the college basketball player of the year and Michigan’s Crisler arena was referred to as “The House that Cazzie Built.” Mr. Russell was also the number one pick in the NBA draft.

Another Michigan All-American, 1970, Rudy Tomjanovich (Jersey was retired by Michigan) both played and coached in the NBA. This five time NBA All-Star coached the Houston Rocket’s to two consecutive NBA titles. He was also the head coach for the USA men’s gold medal basketball team in the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Michigan great Glenn Rice (Michigan’s leading career and single-season scorer) led the Wolverines to a national title in 1989. He won an NBA title in 2000 with the Los Angeles Lakers. In the NCAA tournament, Glenn was selected and received the tournament’s most outstanding player award. He was a fourth player selected in the NBA draft, and recently had his Jersey retired from the University Michigan.

More recently, in the 1990s, “The Fab Five” (Chris Webber, Juan Howard, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King) led the Wolverines to two consecutive NCAA championship games. Webber, Rose and Howard were All-Americans and these three had tremendous NBA careers. Currently, Webber and Rose are NBA TV analysts. In 2012-2013 Trey Burke (NCAA player of the year) and Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Wolverines to the championship game against Louisville. Both were drafted in the first round and play in the NBA.

When Wolverine football began in 1879, Rutherford B Hayes, was the 19th Pres. of the United States. Pres. Hayes served one term. He was born in Delaware, Ohio; was a Congressman and a two-term Gov. of Ohio as well. He assumed the presidency, even though we lost the popular vote, with 20 contested electoral college votes. Several the issues of the day related to the end of reconstruction; the great railroad strike; the coinage of silver as it relates to gold; and the Monroe doctrine In reference to the Panama Canal. And, Michigan is playing football?

In 1925, 26, 27, Michigan’s Benny Oosterbaan was an All-American during those three years and also had his Jersey retired. Tom Harmon was an All-American halfback in 1939, and a Heisman winner in 1940. His Michigan number was also retired. Ron Kramer, was an All-American end in 1955 and 56, and also had his number retired. Our 38th president, Gerald Ford played center and was an All-American too.

More recently, other Michigan All-Americans, NFL greats, and Super Bowl champions include Ty Law(1994) of the New England Patriots; Desmond Howard(1991) of the Green Bay Packers; Charles Woodson(1996, 1997) of the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders and Jim Harbaugh(1986) who coached the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 Super Bowl. And last but not least, Tom Brady three time winner(New England Patriots) of the Super Bowl.

The Ohio State University Buckeyes aren’t too shabby either. This great University, located in Columbus, Ohio, was founded in 1870 and currently ranked 56 among national universities in this country. The Scarlet and Gray has a third-largest University campus in the United States and the 18th largest University research library in North America.
Ohio State is one of four universities(the others-University of Michigan, Stanford and University of California-Berkeley) to have won national championships in men’s basketball, men’s baseball and football. Not only that, Ohio State is one of two, the other being, Florida to win national championships in the same calendar year in men’s football and basketball
