The 10 Greatest

Most people have heard the term "Michigan Man." It was a term made most famous by former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.

But a question resides within the term...What is a "Michigan Man"?

From a personal standpoint becoming a "Michigan Man" has little to do with on field accomplishment.

In order to become a "Michigan Man" you don't have to beat Ohio State, you don't have to win a Heisman or even start for that matter.

What defines the "Michigan Man" is a person who willingly devotes their blood, sweat, and tears for the benefit of the program. They conduct themselves with the highest level of class and integrity. They are someone that works hard in the classroom, film room and weight room, and on the field.
It is a title bestowed to those who overcome great adversity, those who persevere and never give up...It is a name for "Those who stay."

Know that this list is not designed to rank the greatest players in Michigan history, as that has been done many times before.

The motivation for this article is to list the top football players who have best represented themselves and the University of Michigan as "Michigan Men."

So without further ado, here is the top 10 greatest "Michigan Men" in Michigan history.
