The greatness of a college football team is not measured only by win totals or championships won. It is not evaluated simply by the number of All-Americans that have graced its uniform. It is not judged merely by the passion of its fans. The finest programs in America boast all these attributes, and one could argue that the University of Michigan is perched atop that list. They have captured eleven national titles and have won forty-two Big Ten crowns, more than any other team, including archrival Ohio State. They have placed thirty-four players and coaches into the College Football Hall of Fame. In this fast-paced account, lauded coaches and players alike are featured, including Fielding Yost, John "The Michigan Cannonball" Maulbetsch, Bennie Oosterbaan, Willis Ward, Fritz Crisler, Tom Harmon, Dan Dierdorf, Bo Schembechler, Desmond Howard, Elvis Grbac, Lloyd Carr, Brian Griese, Charles Woodson, Tom Brady, and Denard Robinson. A timeline also offers sport aficiandos fast facts.
