Wolverine Legends Tournament Final: Charles Woodson vs. Glenn Rice

After weeks of voting, we are down to two men for the right to be called the Bleed Blue Wolverine Legend. Voting is unlimited and will end Friday, April 5th at noon. Go Blue!

Charles Woodson is arguably the face of the Michigan football program over the last 20 years. Leading the Wolverines to the 1997 National Championship and winning the Heishman Trophy in the same year, this two-way star is one of the most decorated athletes in U of M history.  Drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders in 1998, Woodson has a very successful pro career as well, playing for the Raiders and Packers in his fifteen year career.  You will not see a Heisman highlight reel without Woodson famously striking his pose against Michigan State in 1997.

He is an eight time NFL Pro Bowler, seven time All-Pro, NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2009, and won a Super Bowl with the Packers in 2011.

Glenn Rice is one of the all-time greats in the Michigan basketball program. He is the program’s career leading scorer with 2,442 points in his four years. Rice led the Wolverines to the 1989 National Championship and scored a record 184 points during that run in the NCAA Tournament. He was the fourth overall selection in the 1989 NBA Draft by the Miami heat and won a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000. Rice’s #41 was retired by the program in 2005.
