Tolly Taylor Special to Detroit Free Press Published 11:32 AM EDT Oct 13, 2018 ESPN “College GameDay” co-host Maria Taylor sat down with Michigan football defensive end Chase Winovich in an Ann Arbor restaurant to discuss his favorite game-day tradition. Winovich’s answer might surprise. It’s not singing “Hail to the Victors,” he said, but when the whole team sings “It’s Great To Be A Michigan Wolverine.” He explained that whenever the team sings it, it makes players realize they have to win. It focuses the team. Winovich also said that it’s not a song the team always sings, so it means the game they’re about to play is a special one. More from ‘GameDay’: Under Jim Harbaugh, ‘everything has changed’ at Michigan football Winovich told Taylor that the funniest part of the tradition is when the team has been singing the song for five minutes and it becomes awkward, because no one can figure out how to end it. The least surprising part: Taylor and Winovich started singing the song together, both of them pumping their fists in rhythm.
