It's not like they had a shot at anything. My Ducks, on the other hand, they coulda been a contenda.

That's an odd rendition of "Hail to the Victors!"

In other words I, and every other Michigan alum, object strongly to you assertion!

Don't take my word for it... google it. Or just follow this link:

Well, colovian, I know Michigan has one hec of a school, a football program and history.

But the fight song??? Sorry man. Dont' recognize it at all. Been watching college footbal since I was knee high to a grass hopper. The Michigan song doesn't ring familiar at all.

The two, and the ONLY two that I think the public at large recognize readily are, of course, Notre Dame's school song. And the other, On Wisconsin for the Univ of Wisconsin. My middle school (in Texas) used it as a fight song (with our own lyrics).

Other than that.....I don't think that any other college fight song are nationally recognized by the layperson.

I'm impartial to this one myself, of course....but I won't claim it's eminently reconizeable.

Hook'em.

The Notre Dame and UofM are invariably the top two on college football fight song lists, which one is #1 is hotly debated. Oddly enough "On Wisconsin" wasn't even on that "top 15" list I posted, though it should be (my high school's fight song was to the tune of "On Wisconsin" for example.)

I know a few people who went to school in Texas but came up to UofM for college. One girl grew up in San Antonio and her high school's fight song was based on "The Victors". So while I'd agree that my personal familiarity with the song comes from growing up a Michigan fan there is plenty of evidence that the song is well known nationwide (worldwide in fact.) Even in Texas it's used for high school fight songs, probably true I every state if the nation.
