M Is for Michigan Football

Celebrating the Tradition of Michigan Football
Greg Nelson
A collection of photographs, historical facts, and trivia from University of Michigan football


M Is for Michigan Football explores 26 of the many traditions and highlights of the University of Michigan football program, the winningest in all of college football. The book features eye-popping photos and text about myriad traditions in alphabetical order—from beloved Coach Bo Schembechler (B), the 1969 win over Ohio State (the Game) (G), 1997 national championship (N), to zero—the number of losses suffered by the 1901 Wolverines in their undefeated, untied, and unscored-upon season (Z).

Complete schedules and results from the past 40 seasons are included plus a few "best of" lists. Who was the best UM quarterback? What was the most memorable play? Based on the candidates given in the book, you decide and discuss with other fans who bleed maize and blue.

G is for Greg Nelson, who was born in Jackson, Michigan, and majored in journalism at Central Michigan University. He has been a professional writer for more than 25 years.
