11/12/2012 - Roy Roundtree refused to get discouraged about his slow start this season. The Michigan receiver insisted he wasn't worried about it and said his time would come. It looks as if he was right. Roundtree has 203 yards receiving in his last two games to surpass his production from the first eight games of the year. He leaped to tip and catch a 53-yard pass Saturday that set a field goal with 2 seconds left to extend a game the Wolverines won 38-31 in overtime over Northwestern. "That play was for Michigan," Roundtree said. The 23rd-ranked Wolverines (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) hope the fifth-year senior can help them finish the regular season with wins Saturday at home against Iowa (4-6, 2-4) and the next week at Ohio State, which is currently ranked No. 6 and undefeated. Roundtree finished with 139 yards receiving - the second highest total of his career - and a season-high five receptions against Northwestern. With 2,102 career yards receiving, he moved past former Wolverines receiver Derrick Alexander and into 12th place on the school's all-time list. "Everyone knows what I can do," Roundtree said. Early in his career, everyone saw him do a lot. Roundtree, who was in Rich Rodriguez's first recruiting class at Michigan, redshirted as a freshman during the 2008 season. He led the Wolverines in receiving in 2009 and 2010 by flourishing in Rodriguez's spread offense. The slender, 6-foot, 180-pound receiver slipped statistically last season with just 19 receptions for 355 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning score with 2 seconds left to beat Notre Dame. He didn't do much this season - making no more than three catches for no more than 33 yards - until Devin Gardner began starting in place of injured Denard Robinson against Minnesota and Northwestern. - AP Sports

08/12/2012 - The Michigan football team has had its first notable injury setback of the 2012 season. Although coach Brady Hoke doesn't expect it to be overly serious. Hoke announced Sunday that senior wide receiver Roy Roundtree had arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday, and is expected back in two weeks. "He had a little cartilage that he needed cleaned up, we expect him back in two weeks," Hoke said. "Everything went great, he feels great. "It was just one of those things." Roundtree, who is expected to be one of Michigan's leading pass-catchers this season, hurt his knee "walking back to the huddle" at practice last week. "A lot of guys come back in two weeks (from surgery like this)," Hoke said. "Our doctors did a tremendous job, we have a great medical staff. "Everything went well from talking to them. ... And you've got a guy like Roy, who is a committed guy, he's going to do everything in his power to get back." The 6-foot, 180-pound senior was honored before the season by receiving Desmond Howard's "Michigan Football Legend" No. 21 jersey. He, along with junior Jeremy Gallon, is Michigan's most experienced wideout. Roundtree is expected to be the team's starter at flanker this season, taking over the position that 2011 leading wideout Junior Hemingway left when he graduated. Roundtree had 72 catches for 935 yards as sophomore in 2010. In 2011, his numbers dipped significantly in Al Borges' new offense - as he finished the season with 19 grabs for 355 yards. For his career, Roundtree has 123 catches for 1,724 yards and 12 touchdowns. - Nick Baumgardner, AnnArbor.com

07/18/2012 - 2012 BILETNIKOFF AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Roy Roundtree, Michigan, has been selected to the Preseason Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented to America's top college football wide receiver by The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. Roundtree is among four Big Ten Conference players and 49 overall candidates listed for the award that goes to the nation's most outstanding receiver. He is U-M's active leader in career receptions (122), receiving yards (1,274) and receiving touchdowns (12). After wearing No. 12 during his first three seasons on the field, Roundtree will don Desmond Howard's No. 21 "Michigan Football Legend" jersey in 2012. - Michigan football

06/12/2012 - Michigan coach Brady Hoke says one of his players will wear former President Gerald Ford's No. 48 this season. Ford's No. 48 is one of five jerseys that were been retired by college football's winningest program. It was put out of circulation in 1994. Ford was Michigan's MVP during his three-year playing career from 1932-34. Hoke made the announcement Tuesday on Birmingham, Ala., radio station WJOX after a caller asked whether someone would wear the No. 1 jersey, made famous by Desmond Howard. Receiver Junior Hemingway wore a patch on his No. 21 jersey last season, honoring Howard, and Roy Roundtree will wear it this year. - AP Sports

05/21/2012 - The first Michigan football legend jersey will appear on the field again this season. U-M announced that senior wide receiver Roy Roundtree will wear the No. 21 jersey made famous by 1991 Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard. The patch on the upper left chest was adorned on Junior Hemingway's No. 21 jersey last season starting with the Notre Dame game. "Coach Hoke and I discussed it and one day I came into the locker room and went to the No. 12 locker and didn't see my name anymore," Roundtree said in a released statement. "I laughed, looked around and there it was, at No. 21. I know what it takes to wear the winged helmet and I know what it takes to be a Michigan football player. I won't disappoint wearing this jersey. It's an honor to be associated with Desmond Howard. I will live with it the rest of my life. It's a blessing." Howard said in the release he was "pleased that Roy will be wearing No. 21 this year. ... Roy embraces the concept of 'team' that was instilled in us by Coach (Bo) Schembechler so many years ago." He also made the point that Roundtree was selfless, being less concerned about his personal production as his numbers fell last season. - Mark Snyder, The Detroit Free Press
