Welcome to Tales from Michigan Stadium--Volume II. Wolverine broadcaster Jim Brandstatter takes you back to one of the greatest college football venues in the nation for his second book about the memories this great stadium holds. Brandstatter takes a little different approach this time around, as he follows some of the great names in Michigan football history on the road. While Michigan Stadium is the launching pad, the entire country is the destination. From the legendary names of Yost and Kipke, to the modern day wonders such as Carr and Braylon Edwards, this volume of tales takes you into the locker room and into the huddle for the untold stories of Michigan football. The tales Brandstatter tells never appeared in the newspapers. They are the stories the actual participants tell when they gather for reunions. From the incredible efforts of the marching band, to the incredible efforts of some tailgaters, every aspect of the Michigan football experience is explored in Volume II. Grab a chair; sit down next to Bo, or Mo, or Rod or Steve, or Tai. Eavesdrop a little at the table of your choice. It's a reunion of some of Michigan's best, and you have been invited. The opportunity to get the inside story on your favorite play or player is just inside. Take your time, relax, and enjoy Tales from Michigan Stadium--Volume II.
