* The University of Michigan boasts three Heisman Trophy winners and a lineman named Gerald Ford who became President of the United States

* At a 1969 PGA Tour event held in Michigan, players were promised a total purse of $100,000 with $20,000 and a car for the winner, but the sponsors didn't have enough money to follow through

* To most people, The Flintstones was an animated television show, but to Michigan State basketball fans, the Flintstones were the hub of a national championship team
