Tales from Michigan Stadium tells the stories of the people who built the tradition of University of Michigan football. These aren't game recaps from the Sunday paper - These stories come from the players who were involved. They come from the practice fields, the locker room, and the inner sanctum of the meeting rooms. The legendary plays - good and bad - are relived by the players who were there and who remember in vivid detail everything that happened - even things fans and coaches don't know.
