Overview

Since 1892, not a single University of Michigan football coach has had a losing record. Almost every road game the Wolverines play is their opponent's biggest game of the year. It's as if the maize and blue jerseys have a target on them, too. That's What It Means to Be a Wolverine. It means being one of the most feared teams in all of college football, and with a 112-year tradition of winning, its understandable that Michigan fans take their football very seriously, and that every seat in the nation's biggest football stadium is consistently occupied. What It Means to Be a Wolverine, by Kevin Allen, Art Reneger, and Nate Brown, covers every aspect of the Wolverine's history: from former President Gerald Ford's playing days to Lloyd Carr's nationwide dominance, it's all there in the unadulterated words of the athletes and coaches who lived it first-hand.
