Some of greatest untold stories from Michigans football program are shared inthis bookbased on intimate interviews with former players and coaches. Due to his long history covering Michigan football, author Steve Kornacki was given open-door access to Lloyd Carr, Bo Schembelcher, and Gary Moeller, all of whom provided hours of their time sharing their personal accounts and of occurrences during their coaching tenures, the stuff that legends are made of. Stories include being in the Michigan locker room after Bo Schembechlers last game in the Big House and hearing his rousing speech leading the team in The Victors as they punctuated each verse by thrusting red roses toward the ceiling. Coach Carr tells about riding in a limousine through New York on the eve of the Heisman Trophy presentation with Desmond Howard en route to a meeting at NBC Studios with Tom Brokaw and a night in the green room at Late Night with David Letterman. A more heartfelt yarn is the American Dream tale of quarterback Elvis Grbacs Croatian family and the story of center Steve Everitts family surviving Hurricane Andrew in a bathtub with the family dog and his 1990 Gator Bowl MVP trophy. Go Blue! reaches back to those special places in time in the programs history in addition to sharing heartwarming anecdotes. This collection is something no Michigan football fan will want to be without.
