Wolverines will honor Jim Mandich

Tomorrow afternoon during the Homecoming game vs. Purdue, the University of Michigan will honor one of it's own, former TE Jim Mandich.

The link below is to the article from

Mandich, who passed away earlier this year, was Bo Schembechler's first Michigan Captain as a Senior in 1969, and was carried off the field by his Wolverine teammates after Michigan upset #1 Ohio State at Michigan Stadium, 24-12.

Mandich went on top a solid NFL career, including playing on the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the NFL's only perfect team in NFL history.

Mandich also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and after retirement he became a fan favorite as part of the Miami Dolphins radio broadcasts.

Mandich passed away this spring from cancer, at the age of 62.
