One hundred and twelve years ago a train pulled up in Ann Arbor with a passenger who would alter the course of Michigan football forever.   Shortly after stepping off that train Fielding Harris Yost is said to have boldly predicted that Michigan wouldn’t lose a game. On this day in Michigan Football History back in 1901, Yost was perfect through two games after pitching a 50-0 shutout of Albion in his Michigan coaching debut – He followed that with a 57-0 beating of Case in what was the 100th win in program history.
