  • La squadra di football dei Michigan Wolverines rappresenta l'Università del Michigan. I Wolverines competono nella Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) della National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) e nella East Division della Big Ten Conference. La squadra è allenata dal 2015 da Jim Harbaugh. Michigan detiene il maggior numero di vittorie di tutti i tempi ed ha la seconda percentuale di vittorie nella storia del college football, dietro solo a Notre Dame. Ha vinto 11 titoli nazionali, l'ultimo dei quali nel 1997, e tra le diverse rivalità, è particolarmente sentita quella con Ohio State, nominata da ESPN la miglior rivalità sportiva in assoluto. I Michigan Wolverines hanno avuto tra le loro fila 78 giocatori nominati unanimemente All-America e tre vincitori dell'Heisman Trophy. Gerald Ford, 38º Presidente degli Stati Uniti d'America, fu il centro titolare di Michigan, di cui fu votato miglior giocatore nel 1934. (it)
  • The Michigan Wolverines football program represents the University of Michigan in college football at the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) level. Michigan has the most all-time wins and the highest winning percentage in college football history. The team is known for its distinctive winged helmet, its fight song, its record-breaking attendance figures at Michigan Stadium, and its many rivalries, particularly its annual, regular-season-ending game against Ohio State, once voted as ESPN's best sports rivalry. Michigan began competing in intercollegiate football in 1879. The Wolverines joined the Big Ten Conference at its inception in 1896, and other than a hiatus from 1907 to 1916, have been members since. Michigan has won or shared 42 league titles, and, since the inception of the AP Poll in 1936, has finished in the top 10 a total of 37 times. The Wolverines claim 11 national championships, most recently that of the 1997 squad voted atop the final AP Poll. From 1900 to 1989, Michigan was led by a series of nine head coaches, each of whom has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame either as a player or as a coach. Fielding H. Yost became Michigan's head coach in 1901 and guided his "Point-a-Minute" squads to a streak of 56 games without a defeat, spanning from his arrival until the season finale in 1905, including a victory in the 1902 Rose Bowl, the first college football bowl game ever played. Fritz Crisler brought his winged helmet from Princeton University in 1938 and led the 1947 Wolverines to a national title and Michigan's second Rose Bowl win. Bo Schembechler coached the team for 21 seasons (1969–1989) in which he won 13 Big Ten titles and a program-record 194 games. The first decade of his tenure was underscored by a fierce competition with his former mentor, Woody Hayes, whose Ohio State Buckeyes squared off against Schembechler's Wolverines in a stretch of the Michigan–Ohio State rivalry dubbed the "Ten-Year War". Schembechler's assistants Gary Moeller and Lloyd Carr helmed the team for the next 18 years, and continued the team's success. Rich Rodriguez succeeded Carr in 2008 and was fired after three seasons in which he compiled the worst record of any coach in program history. Brady Hoke succeeded Rodriguez, but after four years of steadily declining results, was dismissed following his fourth season. Following Hoke's dismissal, Michigan hired former quarterback Jim Harbaugh, who played for Michigan between 1983 and 1986 under Schembechler. The Michigan Wolverines have featured 78 players that have garnered consensus selection to the College Football All-America Team. Three Wolverines have won the Heisman Trophy: Tom Harmon in 1940, Desmond Howard in 1991, and Charles Woodson in 1997. Gerald Ford, the 38th President of the United States, started at center and was voted most valuable player by his teammates on the 1934 team. (en)
