A is for Ann Arbor. 'Each September, more than 100,000 people dressed in maize and blue descend upon Ann Arbor. Located in the heart of southeastern Michigan, and home to Michigan football since 1879, Ann Arbor was originally named by John Allen, one of the city's founders, in honor of his wife, Ann. The accompanying word arbour was added for the countless trees that dot the area. In 2009, Forbes.com named Ann Arbor 'Top College Sports Town' in America based on the Wolverines' all-around sports excellence, fan loyalty, top-flight restaurants and bars, cultural events (a symphony, a ballet, museums, concert halls), a low crime rate, and affordable housing.' So begins ""M Is for Michigan Football"", an exploration of hundreds of bits of trivia about every aspect of the University of Michigan football team, ranging from beloved Coach Bo Schembechler (B) to the Heisman trophy (H) to National Champions (N) to zero - the number of losses suffered by the 1901 Wolverines in their undefeated, untied, and unscored-upon perfect season (Z). Each item is accompanied by dramatic color photographs, interesting historical facts and tidbits, and plenty of reminders of the most memorable of the University of Michigan football program, the winningest in all of college football history. Complete schedules and results from the past 40 seasons are included as are some 'best of' lists - that are open to your debate online. (Who was the all-time best quarterback? What was the most memorable game?) Based on the candidates and information given in the book, decide and discuss with other fans who bleed maize and blue.
