As part of our Iowa Hawkeye and Big Ten coverage, we, the writers of The Hawkeye Compulsion, will periodically visit with icons from Big 10 history and see how their lives have changed since college football. Our first visit with former Iowa quarterback Brad Banks is here. Tonight, we check in on Michigan's early 21st century halfback Mike Hart.
Many of our older readers will remember a gridiron star from Michigan named Mike Hart. From 2004 to 2006, Hart terrorized opposing defenses with his blend of strength, speed, and superior ball control. He rushed for almost 3700 yards during those three years and was named a first-team All-American in 2006.
We checked in with mgoblue.com, the official Michigan athletics website, for more on Mike Hart. Here's what they had to say about the American hero:
