Overview

Reviewing a record that few schools can match—11 national championships, 42 conference championships, three Heisman Trophy winners, and countless All-Americans—this sports history spotlights the University of Michigan’s football legacy. The book presents 122 years’ worth of action captured by the school’s student-run newspaper, the Michigan Daily, drawing from the devoted reporters and photographers who covered the sidelines. Featuring stories and images that were originally published in the periodical, the account presents a record of these young journalists’ outstanding work as well as a must-have keepsake for anyone who ever strolled the campus in Ann Arbor or attended games at Michigan Stadium. The school’s legendary coaches, greatest players, and most memorable victories are related, from the teams of Fielding Yost and Fritz Crisler through the Bo Schembechler and Lloyd Carr eras to Brady Hoke’s current bowl-winning club. Conducting a spectacular journey through the past of one of college football’s top programs, this is an all-inclusive companion for die-hard UM fans.
