Someone who roots for the Michigan Wolverines but never went to the school. There is no way possible that every fan of every school is an actual alumnus of that school. Michigan is picked out because both Wal-Mart and Wolverine start with W.
But the fact remains, the bigger the school, the more “Wal-Mart” fans there are from that school.
Also, if one has to attend the school they root for then most military personal, children under 18, and people who did no attend a FBS schools would not be able to root for any team in 99% of televised college football games. This term is elitist.
Also spelled Walmart Wolverine
Bob is from Michigan and was in the military serving his country in Iraq. He bought a Michigan Wolverine shirt and his friends picked on him and called him a “Wal-Mart Wolverine because he did not attend Michigan. I guess he should have gone to the State college that accepts everyone.
Someone who understands the tradition and styles of Michigan Football as a culture. He does not have to graduate from the school (see Bo Schembechler) or be from the state of Michigan (see Charles Woodson). All that one needs to do to be a Michigan Man, is understand the tradition of Michigan Football and to try to continue it, placing it about all else.
Even though Brady Hoke is from Ohio and went to Ball St, he is a Michigan Man. This is because he cut his teeth being an assistant coach at Michigan and helped them win a national championship in 1997.
A term used toward Michigan fans. This term states that you must have gone to the school you are rooting for. This is very flawed in many ways. Reason 1: that means no one under college age is allowed to cheer on any college football team. Reason 2: College is not for everyone. For instance people in the military serving overseas with no college are not allowed to root for any one in college football. Reason 3:College cost money so not everyone can afford to go to a school like Michigan.
See that guy over there, I think I’m better then him because I’m an elitist pig. He was in the military and served his country but didn’t go to the college or the university that he is rooting for. He is a Walmart Wolverine.
