Jim Harbaugh could bring back helmet stickers for Michigan
By Andrew Holleran
Michigan’s helmets will reportedly look a little bit different in 2015.
According to a report from Rivals.com’s Chris Balas, Jim Harbaugh is bringing back helmet stickers, as well as getting rid of the Wolverines’ “Legends” jerseys, which were worn under Brady Hoke. Michigan first wore helmet stickers in 1969 under Bo Schembechler and continued to do so until 1995, when Lloyd Carr ended the tradition.

According to Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com, Michigan has not made an official decision on the stickers or the jerseys:
Is Jim Harbaugh bringing a few changes — and reintroductions — to Michigan’s football uniform/helmet look in 2015?
But right now, nothing’s been made official.
A Michigan spokesman said Monday that the school has nothing official to report on any uniform or helmet looks/changes for the 2015 season at this time.
It’s pretty typical for a school to deny a report until they want to make it public, so the “nothing’s been made official” comment doesn’t mean there won’t be helmet stickers in 2015. Actually, the fact that Michigan didn’t say “there won’t be helmet stickers” probably means there will be.
What do you think of the look, Michigan fans?
