Announcement: The Wolverine Legends Tournament

Many times when a recruit speaks about why they like the University of Michigan, they will say it has a lot to do with the tradition of the athletics program in Ann Arbor.

Last week, I posed the question on our social networks,”Who is the greatest Michigan athlete of all time?” and received many different answers. Being the curious Wolverine fan that I am, I got to thinking, “Who IS the best Wolverine ever to step onto campus?”

With that in mind, I bring you the Wolverine Legends tournament. The 32-man field is broken down into four regions, which you will be able to see below. Each match-up will include it’s own breakdown and a poll where you can cast your vote. The match-ups will be posted throughout the week, but you can check out the field of teams below.
