October 15, 2013
The Daily News

Some of the greatest untold stories from Michigan's football program are shared in "Go Blue!" (Triumph), a book based 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 coaches Lloyd Carr, Bo Schembechler and Gary Moeller. All of whom provided hours of their time sharing their personal accounts and of occurrences during their coaching tenures.

Stories include being in the Michigan locker room after Bo Schembechler's 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 recalls his walk down memory lane the morning after Michigan won the Rose Bowl and secured the No. 1 ranking in the AP poll.

A more heartfelt yarn is the "American Dream" tale of quarterback Elvis Grbac's Croatian family and the story of center Steve Everitt's 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 program's history in addition to sharing heartwarming anecdotes. This collection is something no Michigan football fan will want to be without.
