I firmly believe that the University of Michigan has historically put forth the most powerful football dynasty of any NCAA team. The most obvious place to begin is total wins, where U-M dominates with more then 860 wins! That's a winning percentage of .745! No team in any division can come close to these stats.
To this day University of Michigan has won ELEVEN national championships, We have produced THREE Heisman trophy winners, and have maintained and are soon to greatly increase the largest football stadium seating in the country. The M-Den commonly hosts more then 111,000 spectators, an awe inspiring number by anyone's standards.
If it's coaching legacies you are looking for, we have plenty of those as well. From Fritz Chrysler to Bo Schembeckler to Lloyd Carr, Michigan has always been home to great coaches. Dedicated to their players futures, U-M coaches have held their athletes to near academic perfection. Coaches from the University of Michigan have always and will always be regarded as some of the best in any sport.
I put forth this article to challenge anyone to find a team that can find an NCAA athletics program that can trump the OVERALL dynasty o the University of Michigan. From its coaches, to its incredible win totals and averages, to the grade A football players and members of our comunity that the University produces, the University of Michigan is the ultimate football dynasty.

The most successful and prestigious College Football Dynasty is not U of M, but instead the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
-Notre Dame has won 8 wire (AP/Coaches Poll) National Championships
-Notre Dame holds a record 11 Consensus National Championships
-Notre Dame's career winning percentage is only .001 behind Michigan's.
-47 players and coaches in the College Football Hall of Fame
-Tied with USC for most Heisman Trophy winners (7)
-33 players have finished as a runner-up to the Heisman Trophy
-9 Players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Second to USC with 10)
-As of 2007, 459 players have played in the NFL (most all-time)
-12 undefeated seasons, 10 one-loss seasons, and only 12 losing seasons in its 118 year history.
-Holds NCAA record for most consecutive wins over one opponent (43, Navy)
-Out of five matchups as a #1 team playing a #2 team, Notre Dame has never lost (4-0-1).
-The Sporting News in 2007 names Notre Dame's stadium second best in the nation to University of Tennessee's.

Additionally, Michigan holds only 7 "recognized" titles, while Notre Dame holds 13.
Notre Dame has 8 AP National Championships, compared to Michigan's 3.

Only taking into account poll-era National Championships, Notre Dame holds 10 compared to Michigan's 3. Michigan is even behind Oklahoma, USC, Alabama, Ohio State, Miami, Nebraska, Minnesota, Tennessee, and Texas.

Dude, OU.
-Most wins since WWII.
-5 Heisman Trophy Winners
-7 Offical National Championships
And I could go on.
And still on top today, still rolling with the punches.
While I admit we haven't been finishing business in bowl games, we still accept challenges and (usually) win.
BOOMER SOONER!

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention, the Irish? Really? You guys were such a joke last year that I could walk into school (In Ann Arbor), say "Howabout them Irish," and everyone would merely laugh instead of responding. Charly Weiss is a M O R O N
