 #1- Rick Leach

Bo Schembechler was quoted on saying that Rick Leach was the greatest quarterback that he had ever been associated with. For Bo to say that, it has to mean that he was pretty good, and he was. To put how good Leach was into perspective, he led Michigan to three consecutive Rose Bowls from 1977-1979. Leach was also a four-year starter and a ground threat, with 34 rushing TD’s along with 48 passing. Leach holds the NCAA record for the highest percentage of passing touchdowns and won three Big Ten championships. It is quite hard not to look at him as the best in Michigan history.
