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 Xs and Os or recruiting or depth charts that’s not here.  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.

You can find a rundown of my outside work here including appearances on the Big Ten Network, WTKA 1050AM, and in various papers, magazines and books.

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

“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.
