There Are Glen Steele Days to Michigan Football

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

The defense on the 1997 team had star contributors all around the field, but Glen Steele was the anchor on the line. Second in Michigan history with 24 sacks for his career, and an All-American selection his senior year. Steele was often in the backfield before the quarterback, and made a living off of confusing the dickens out of them. It takes skill to disrupt an offense and Steele was the go-to man for Michigan that year.
