The Michigan football program's plan to honor its legends by having nike usa soccer jersey current players wear their jerseys apparently will continue this season with former President Gerald Ford's retired No. 48.


Michigan coach Brady Hoke made the announcement while answering a fan's question about the storied No. 1 jersey on Birmingham, Ala., radio stations WJOX FM and WJOX AM.


"I think (the No. 1 will be brought out) in the near future, but I can't tell you it will be this season," Hoke said. "That's something that we're doing a lot of thinking about. We're honoring Desmond Howard now with one of our players who really deserves it, and that's (receiver) Roy Roundtree wearing We Look Forward To You Order. No. 21. We're going to do the same with Gerald Ford's jersey this year. We're looking at doing it."


Michigan did not reveal any other Dt5FW6a9x details about the releasing of Ford's No. 48, which was retired at a game Oct. 8, 1994, and is believed to be the first of Michigan's five retired numbers (honoring different seven players) to re enter circulation.


If Hoke has ruled out a Wolverines player wearing the No. 1 jersey this year, that means senior quarterback Denard Robinson won't get the chance to wear it. Former Michigan receiver Braylon Edwards suggested to the Free Press in the spring that Robinson could be the first nonreceiver to wear the number in modern times.


Ford, from Grand Rapids and a member of the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, later earned a law degree from Yale, became the minority Reebok NFL Jerseys | Real Reebok Clothing Sale leader of the House of Representatives, ascended to vice president after Spiro Agnew's resignation and became the president when Richard Nixon resigned in August 1974.
