Face it, you hear it all the time. “INSERT NAME HERE is a Michigan Man.” But, what does it mean? What makes a regular man, a Michigan Man?
All sources point toward one man, Bo Schembechler. Who famously pronounced that a Michigan Man will coach Michigan. This set forward a chain of events that will lead to the legend today, with characteristics which include loyalty to the Maize and Blue until the day he dies and most importantly, have pride for the University of Michigan.
Pride. Tradition. Loyalty. Conviction.
You see, Michigan fans come from far and wide to celebrate the aforementioned traits. That’s what we, as a fan base, come together to agree upon. Our love stems from loyalty to this team, to the coaches and to the players. Our admiration for tradition sets us apart from any university. We are proud to be Wolverines, and winning is our only conviction.
If you feel love in your heart towards the University of Michigan, then you are a Michigan Man. Being a Wolverine means you’re included into a fraternity that extends to the far reaches of the world. But we still manage to unite as one.
Think to yourself, what makes you a Michigan Man? Would you love this University with all you had?
If you can see yourself coaching in Ann Arbor for life, you are a Michigan Man,
