BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Michigan

BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Michigan

Including the phrase “the leaders and best” in your school’s fight song is a pretty bold move. But when it comes to Michigan, it’s not just idle boasting.

From its winged helmets to “The Big House,” from Fielding Yost’s “Point a Minute” football teams to Tom Brady and Charles Woodson, the university’s athletics have always stood out. And Michigan excels in many other areas, too — auto engineering, alternative energy and adaptive technologies, to name a few.

These LiveBIG stories demonstrate how Michigan continues to be among the “leaders and best” in many important respects:
