2016 FOOTBALL RECRUITING ISSUE BY TIM SULLIVAN P asadena, Calif., holds a special place in the hearts of Michigan fans. The Wolverines have played in 20 Rose Bowls, including the very first in 1902 (a 49-0 victory over Stan- ford). It's been the site of champion- ship-sealing wins — most recently in 1997 — and heartbreaking losses. The Wolverines haven't played in the "Granddaddy of Them All" since the 2006 season, a 32-18 loss to USC on Jan. 1, 2007. The motivation to re- turn to Pasadena is self-evident. For a couple of the newest Wolverines, there's an added incentive of playing in their hometown. Although cornerback David Long went to high school in downtown Los Angeles at Loyola High School and wide receiver Dylan Crawford finished his high school career in Rose Bowl Homecomings Are Possible For Southern California Signees rates Los Angeles Loyola four-star David Long as the No. 9 cornerback and No. 81 overall player in the land.
