“Those who stay will be champions.” Bo Schembechler delivered this iconic message to his squad of Wolverines in 1969, and to this day, it continues to define the Michigan football program. Here, the road to success is steep, requiring perseverance, discipline and sheer hard work to climb – but it’s a path taken by the Leaders and Best, and every step is more than worth the effort. As members of the Team, we sweat, we work, we never quit, and our support for one another never wavers. On the field, we fight for victory as an impenetrable unified force. Off the field, we bring that same sense of commitment to the larger Michigan family, supporting our community through volunteer work and bettering ourselves academically through diligence in the classroom. Through all of these challenges, we stay the course, because we truly are champions, and we know that with dedication comes reward. See why it’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
Try hard and you will stay. Those who stay will be champions.
