At the University of Michigan, the Heisman Memorial Trophy is not the goal in any given season. The goals were clear: BEAT OHIO STATE, win the Big Ten, and win in Pasadena. The modern era goals are to BEAT OHIO STATE, win the Big Ten, and win the BCS Championship Game. This team focus outlined by Michigan's Legendary Coach remains the battle cry of a proud TEAM. Bo made it pretty clear that it isn't about the Heisman at Michigan. Through the years however, there have been legendary performances that elevated Michigan TEAMS to greater heights. Three of these earned the most prestigious individual award in all of College Athletics, The Heisman Trophy. 98-21-2 reviews the careers and historic seasons of: #98 Tom Harmon 1940, #21 Desmond Howard 1991, and #2 Charles Woodson 1997. It also covers the others who've come close. 21 total Michigan players have finished in the Top 10 voting for the award, and they are all covered in this story from 1940 to today. From Harry Newman (who's Harry Newman?) to Shoelace, learn the complete history of Michigan and the Heisman. This book is a must read for any Michigan fan, and will evoke memories of some of the greatest moments in Wolverine Football History. Learn about the statistics, plays, and events that led these men to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City and beyond from war heroes to today's big hearted philanthropists.
