HAIL TO THE VICTORS is the definitive annual preview magazine for Michigan football. It is jam packed with content from MGoBlog authors and our regular crew of contributors. CONTAINED WITHIN ITS MULTITUDINOUS PAGES ARE

A FULL TEAM PREVIEW from Brian Cook of MGoBlog. Every potential contributor, every breakout freshman, every... uh... 2021 quarterback recruit we're quite excited about. Depth. Breadth. Pro Football Focus tweets. Yeah buddy. 

The opposition surveyed by Seth Fisher, Bryan Mackenzie, and Adam Schnepp. Ohio State in the post-Urban era. Notre Dame at night. I have not read the Middle Tennessee portion yet but I personally guarantee it will shout out Giddy Potts. 

HARDCORE FOOTBALL BUSINESS. This year's pieces include Seth's look at what Josh Gattis will try to accomplish as Michigan's first out-and-out spread offensive coordinator since... well, it's been a minute. Speed in Space! 

Also Ian Boyd evaluates what happened to Don Brown's defense at the end of last year and what he might do to make his defense less susceptible to... that. 

The material Michigan is made of. Adam Schnepp sits down with senior viper Khaleke Hudson. Michael Elkon surveys what happens when a legendary coach leaves. You know, in case that happened to anyone recently. 

Michigan's history, researched annually. Dr. Sap talks to Bo's chief assistants Jerry Hanlon and Jim Young about their preparation, strategies, play calls, and tricks for beating Ohio State in 1969. Greg Dooley on Fielding Yost's rarely-discussed tenure as athletic director. Craig Ross finally writes about something he did not personally experience by going all the way back to 1893, the year the colleges realized football was a big business and made it theirs. 

THE SHIRT

This year's exclusive kickstarter shirt almost had ALF on it until we decided not to get sued by a vengeful purveyor of 1980s sitcom copyrights:

If this does not fit your fancy you'll be given the option to pick from a selection of our most popular merch.

128 pages jam-packed with Michigan content! No filler! Even the roster has delightful asides! A free E-Book version for everyone! Consume!
