Harbaugh restores Michigan tradition
The famous maize and blue winged helmet will look a little different in 2015. Actually, it’ll look more like the traditional look it once had under Bo Schembechler.
Coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed on Monday that the program is bringing back helmet stickers, which were used when he quarterbacked the program in the 80’s.
According to Michigan receiver Amara Darboh, the football-shaped stickers will feature a Wolverine. Debroh received a team-best nine stickers for his eight-catch, 103-yard performance. Tight end Jake Butt, who was the second leading receiver, told the media that he was in second place with eight.
The players saw them when they got to practice on Sunday. To earn one, Harbaugh said, players will have individual, unit and team criteria goals.
They were dropped when Lloyd Carr took over the program in 1995, which means that for the first time in 20 years on Saturday, the Victors will be seen with the classic look.
If Harbaugh has it his way, the restored look will coincide with Michigan restoring its winning ways.
The Wolverines will look to get their first-year coach his first victory when they host Oregon State on Saturday.
