“I was lucky enough to play football for the University of Michigan. First on Ferry Field and then in the stadium. And I was lucky enough to start a few games in the football season of 1934 – and that was quite a year. The Wolverines on that memorable occasion played Ohio State, and we lost 34 to 0. And to make it even worse, that was the year we lost seven out of eight of our scheduled games. But you know, what really hurt me most was when my teammates voted me their most valuable player. I didn’t know whether to smile or sue.”

“I’m a loyal Wolverine. When they lose in football, basketball or anything, I still get darn disappointed.”

– Ford
