They said he was too small, too light. They thought maybe he was just a track man. He could run over a hurdle but not over Ohio State. One of the coaches thought maybe he could run back kicks. But that's all. He was just a white-chipper at best. What nobody reckoned on was the depths of Jamie Morris' commitment to University of Michigan football. It went back to the raw New Year's Day in 1979. In the living room of the Morris family home in Ayer, Mass.

When big brother talks, Jamie Morris listens--especially when big brother is Joe Morris of the New York Giants. The Michigan tailback, who rushed for 156 yards to pace Michigan to its Fiesta Bowl victory over Nebraska, said his performance was inspired by a pregame talk with his older brother.
