From the Michigan History Project comes WOLVERINE: A Photographic History of Michigan Football

. December 1, 2015.

Top-notch football is back at the Big House, and now there is a great opportunity to relive U of M’s glory years. From the Michigan History Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the history of Michigan into the present, comes a new book aimed at the college football lover; WOLVERINE: A Photographic History of Michigan Football. Bringing the inside history of Michigan football to life with over 1,000 photographs, many never publically released before, the book goes in depth on five historic seasons, including Bo Schembechler’s first incredible year as coach (1969) and Charles Woodson’s Heisman Trophy-winning junior season that ended in a national championship (1997). The book examines the history of Michigan football off the field as well, with photos of fans, coaches, and cheerleaders. With text from University of Michigan graduate Mike Rosenbaum and a foreward from former Wolverine quarterback and current NFL player Denard Robinson, this book will make the perfect holiday gift for all of those who can’t get enough Michigan football.
