[btn-post-package]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:
