8 THE WOLVERINE ❱ FEBRUARY 2024 T hey're champions of the West, the East, the North and the South. In arguably the biggest game, capping the greatest season, in Michigan football history, the Wolverines let their fists fly and the confetti flutter. "15-0," Jim Harbaugh proclaimed. "Took on all comers. The last one stand- ing. Champions." National champions, for the first time since 1997. National champions. Not by a vote. Not by pleading, begging or televised appeals. Not with the proud affirmation of their own league commissioner, curled up somewhere in the bowels of the Big Ten offices. Not with the help of the national media, which genuflected only when forced, like Alabama and Washington. WOLVERINE WATCH ❱ JOHN BORTON Michigan Stands Alone At 15-0 Captain Blake Corum, who came back for "unfinished business" in his senior season, declared "BUSINESS IS FINISHED" on the podium at NRG Stadium in Houston after Michigan captured the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 8.
