Yost spoke at his retirement in 1942 of “an enthusiasm that makes it second nature for Michigan men to spread the gospel of their university to the world’s distant outposts; a conviction that nowhere is there a better university, in any way, than this Michigan of ours.”
Having been in the business of printing such gospels for almost a decade, MGoBlog has collected 18 articles from pages of Hail to the Victors 2007 to the most recent edition and put them into one book that won't self-destruct at the next kickoff. They are as follows:
