Before the days of the drop-back passer in Ann Arbor, the Michigan Wolverines featured the running quarterback. The last signal caller to start behind center in an option attack for the Maize and Blue was none other than Michael Taylor (1986-89). The Cincinnati product missed the 1989 Rose Bowl with the flu but quarterbacked the the Wolverines back to "Grandaddy of Them All" in 1990 where they lost 17-10. Taylor still ranks in the top five in career pass efficiency (141.6) and possesses the lowest career interception percentage (2.55).
Though he has been out of football for a number of years now, Taylor has never been far away from the game. He functioned as WTKA's post game analyst for two years, providing candor and wonderful insight for listeners throughout southeastern Michigan. This Sunday Taylor will put the headsets back on to begin his tenure as co-host of the GoBlueWolverine Hour. Then, in weekly segments on GoBlueWolverine.com he will provide his analysis on previous week's game, and also look ahead to Michigan's upcoming contest.
Please join us this weekend in welcoming Mike to the show!
