There Are Butch Woolfolk 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.

Butch Woolfolk was on Michigan's power teams of the late 1970's and early 1980's, and is lucky enough to have had a son play for Michigan just like Stan and Braylon Edwards. Most notably, he was the starting running back in 1980 when Michigan squashed Purdue to get a lock on a conference title. Michigan got to the Rose Bowl and gave Bo Schembechler his first victory in that game, beating perennial Pasadena power Washington.
