The locals are aware there’s an “American football” but can’t fathom how an amateur/college team could be as popular as a professional or national team.
So here goes the question. And to add a little context, I’m working on a piece on the winged helmet tradition, which turns 75 this season. In the opening paragraph I started to write something about its place amongst the most defining characteristics of the Michigan program…and stumbled.
P.S. I didn’t put “Tradition” in here because I don’t think you can’t really define what Michigan tradition means without mentioning one (or all) of the above.
