An ode to Michigan futility

The year is at about its halfway point — six months since Ohio State beat Michigan, and six months until the Buckeyes travel to Ann Arbor to play again — so today, near the nadir of the year, seems like a good time to note that University of Michigan graduates have been nominated for president by major parties three times — Thomas Dewey in 1944 and 1948, and Gerald Ford in 1976 — and have lost each time.

That should provide some solace for Bo Schembechler.
