Remembering the 1964 Michigan football team and a special souvenir
The 1964 Michigan football team went 9-1, and its only loss came in a 21-20 defeat against Purdue.
It's also a team that walked away from the season with a unique souvenir, a football-shaped charm. There's a fine story behind the charm, and Greg Dooley tells it well on his MVictors.com blog with help from 1964 team captain Jim Conley. It's a story that centers around Conley, then coach Bump Elliott and the feared command of athletic director Fritz Crisler.
