T-minus 7…Mario Manningham

Mario Manningham is one of the greatest ever to play wide receiver at the University of Michigan and in the 2007 had his most productive year.

During that campaign, the 2-time First-team All-Big Ten award winning Manningham totaled a Wolverine record seven 100-yard receiving games and compiled a 1174 yards on the year, second only to Braylon Edwards for a single season.

In fact, Manningham ranks inside the top 10 in most all statistical receiving records for the university and that’s impressive considering he only played three seasons.

But of course, Mario will forever be best remembered for his performance against the MSU Spartans in 2007.

During the “little brother” game, with the Wolverines trailing by three with just over two minutes to play, Manningham broke to the end zone and pulled down a 31-yard Chad Henne thrown touchdown pass in acrobatic fashion to seal the 28-24 come from behind victory.

The win gave the Wolverines their sixth straight victory over MSU. Unfortunately though, that victory has been their last.

In 7 days, the Wolverines begin their path to redemption…

(If you believe like I do that the MSU streak ends in 2012, hit that “like” button now! Go Blue!!)
