Thanks for checking out, a University of Michigan sports blog with a focus on the history and culture of U-M athletics and naturally that means primarily football.  I’ve been writing online since February 2001 and launched MVictors in 2006.  If there’s a mission of this site, it’s to provide unique content that you will not find elsewhere – most of that is history and my view of the world off the football field.

If you are looking for a breakdown of Xs & Os, or recruiting or depth charts please look elsewhere.  Rest assured I won’t be breaking down game film unless it involves Tom Harmon.

Most of the game photos posted on this site are taken by my photographer Kelley Kuehne.  If you’d like to use an original photo on this site, please link to the page where you got it.

Note: This site is not affiliated in any way with the University of Michigan or any club or group associated with the school.

MVictors Elsewhere: I appear occasionally and WTKA 1050AM and regularly on the football pregame show in the This Week in Michigan Football History segment.  I also write a monthly history story for GoBlueWolverine Magazine, and I’ve had pieces in the last several editions of Brian Cook’s preseason guide Hail to the Victors.  Finally, I’ve appeared in the Big Ten Network’s Icons series (Tom Harmon and Bo Schembechler editions) and done freelance work for the Detroit News, the Ann Arbor Observer, and the Saline Reporter.    I appearin Stunt3 Multimedia’s wonderful documentary on the Willis Ward/Gerald Ford/Georgia Tech incident in 1934, Black and Blue (2012).  For the past few years I’ve also had various contributions to the official Michigan game program. (A complete rundown of outside work here.)

Want to Support MVictors?: That’s easy, email me with feedback, comment on posts, submit guest columns, visit my sponsors and most importantly, support a charity that I highlight.

Ads, Revenue, etc: It’s a hobby, that’s it.   I do use as a frequent sponsor to a few charitable events, primarily for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The advertisers on this site cover hosting expenses, guest writers, and help supplement the charitable sponsorships.

“Let me reiterate the spirit of Michigan.  It is based upon a deathless loyalty to Michigan and all her ways; an enthusiasm that makes it second nature for Michigan men to spread the gospel of their university to the world’s distant outposts; a conviction that nowhere is there a better university; in any way, than this Michigan of ours.” — Fielding H.
