To me Roscoe Parrish’s biggest legacy at UM (he did have 3 punt return TD’s in the NFL) is how when Beard got injured in the 10th game of 2002 that Parrish filled in for him admirably and helped the team win the NC.

One of my all time favorite's. Roscoe almost was not a cane, Butch Davis thought that he was too small. When a scholarship became
available, offensive coordinator Larry Coker went out on a limb and gave it to Roscoe , and Butch said OK.
That is impossible! I have learned through this site that God himself goes to Butch Davis for answers on everything, there is no way Butch would have missed on Roscoe if not for Coker.

Lol at Butch missing on Scoe if not for Coker...Where do people come up with this stuff??...Lol at Coker giving him a schollie without Butch's approval....Jesus H Christ...as if Butch never gave a schollie to undersized playmakers....

If my memory serves me correctly Roscoe got offered once Butch left and Coker was HC.

I remember this as well. Yes Butch had signed undersized playmakers like Daryl Jones and gotten Santana to walk on etc, but Roscoe was a different level of undersized. This was one actual Coker recruiting contribution.
