Obviously to who has worn No. 12.
According to a combination of archives from the Bentley Historical Library online and Michigan’s own record book listing letterwinners, it appears 43 players have worn the number in the school’s history -- from the recognizable (Roy Roundtree and Devin Gardner) to the unknown (Isadore Grodsky) to the future star who supposedly wore it for only one season in which he didn't play (Elvis Grbac).
Here’s a look at the history of No. 12 and Michigan, and where available how their careers fared.
