9781600788482: Go Blue!: Michigan's Greatest Football Stories

Some of greatest untold stories from Michigan's football program are shared in this book based on intimate interviews with former players and coaches. Due to his long history covering Michigan football, author Steve Kornacki was given open-door access to Lloyd Carr, Bo Schembelcher, and Gary Moeller, all of whom provided hours of their time sharing their personal accounts and of occurrences during their coaching tenures; the stuff that legends are made of. Stories include being in the Michigan locker room after Bo Schembechler's last game in the Big House and hearing his rousing speech leading the team in "The Victors" as they punctuated each verse by thrusting red roses toward the ceiling. Coach Carr tells about riding in a limousine through New York on the eve of the Heisman Trophy presentation with Desmond Howard en route to a meeting at NBC Studios with Tom Brokaw and a night in the green room at Late Night with David Letterman. A more heartfelt yarn is the "American Dream" tale of quarterback Elvis Grbac's Croatian family and the story of center Steve Everitt's family surviving Hurricane Andrew in a bathtub with the family dog and his 1990 Gator Bowl MVP trophy. Go Blue! reaches back to those special places in time in the program's history in addition to sharing heartwarming anecdotes. This collection is something no Michigan football fan will want to be without.
