Sign language: Michigan Wolverines

Every Michigan player should know Bo Schembechler's most famous quote -- "Those who stay will be champions." In case they don't, the words are displayed prominently above the entrance leading from Schembechler Hall into the Al Glick Field House, Michigan's superb indoor practice facility.
Michigan players and coaches see the sign each day before their practice sessions -- even those on the outdoor field -- and it's easy to see for those entering or exiting the team locker room. It reinforces a message that Schembechler preached throughout his 21 seasons at the school, which featured a record 13 Big Ten championships.
The word "champions" is displayed in capital letters, and while there's no attribution, there's really no need for one.
