Plays were some of the best. 

I remember that one game they won 7-4, never thought they'd beat the Michigan Southern Teachers Union but they survived.

second reference to that football period in Michigan history in two days. Yesterday the thread on top Michigan players all-time led to a link that listed MgoBlue's previous ranking of all-time Michigan athletes covering that period in time with mention of several players including Willie Heston and a defender who innovated the linebacker position at Michigan during this incredible period of the school's early football supremacy.

You may not appreciate the past in connection with today's modern version of the game, but the guys who played back then were the best athlketes of their day and played whomever they could compete against.

There's no way to judge how good Michigan was playing against teams that were not nearly at the same level.

It's like you beating your 2 brothers at basketball, they are 2 years old, you are 21. It's not realistic to compare.

Yes....that is dominant.

To dominate somebody, or in this case an entire schedule, it is due to being vastly superior in a number of ways. To re-use your brother example (although I don't know about the 21-2 comparison) I would dominate my brothers in basketball because I am bigger, faster, stronger, and more athletic. To be fair, there really wasn't anybody at that time that WAS on Michigan's level. Very very few teams. So nobody being as good as you are means you aren't dominant?

You aren't on the same level with people and dominate them very often. It just doesn't happen that way. I think you misunderstand the meaning of the word domination.

Case, Physicians and Surgeons, American Medical School. I heard those teams had a pretty solid run game, but not much for defense.

The surgeons were noted for being able to cut and slice opposing secondaries.

Hugh White

Hugh White was captain of the 1901 team. In the Tournament of Roses game (the inaugural) Michigan travelled with only 11 players. The game was so one-sided that the Stanford captain approached Hugh White in the Third Quarter to concede the game and Hugh accepted.

Another note: scoring was different back then. The scores listed above would be even more pronounced if translated to a more modern metric.
