An overly zealous University of Michigan football fan who never attended the university (probably never went to school past high school), nor has any affiliation in any way to the school. They wear all the U-M apparel you can buy at your local Wal-Mart.
"U-M ROCKS!! GO BLUE!!
Man, what a Wal-Mart Wolverine, look at that awesome Carhart jacket.
A fan of the Michigan Wolverines who has absolutely no affiliation to the university. They, usually lacking a college education, tend to have low-end jobs and therefore buy their Michigan apparel from Wal-Mart. Using said goods, they inflate their own egos with the historical successes of the Michigan football team, mistakenly believing themselves to be better than any fans of Michigan's arch-rivals, Ohio State or Michigan State. Being that most of these fans have a college education, and have a much better job and life than the Michigan fan, they are in fact far more superior than this fan. When the Wolverines do poorly, this person's ego is destroyed to the point where their existence becomes so pitiful that they will never, ever get laid.
Steve is such a Wal-Mart Wolverine, he thinks he's better than my son, a MSU graduate.
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.
A fan of the University of Michigan who has never attended the school and roots for them while wearing one or more of the following:
-$5.00 Michigan shirt bought at Wal-Mart
"YEAH MAN! GO BLUE!!!"
"Oh ignore him, he never went here. He's a Walmart Wolverine"
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.
