So if Harbaugh is indeed introduced next week, a big question for Michigan uniform mavens concerns whether #4 will re-introduce the helmet decals.  Bo actually invented the concept while at Miami, and brought them to Ann Arbor in 1969.  Here’s a brief run down of the stickers over the years thanks to Dr. Sap:

decal history You’ll note above that the decals actually took a break in the mid-1980s during Harbaugh’s tenure, but did indeed return for his final two seasons, including his captaincy in 1986.  We also know that Coach Harbaugh used them in Palo Alto:

Coach Hoke was asked about this by Wojo back in 2011 and obviously nothing happened, but with Harbaugh?   You’d have to think there’s a good chance we’ll see them on the field in 2015. 

What do you think?

  1. OMG, Someone actually feels the same as I do about the helmet stickers. Please bring them back.

  2. Compared what DB did to our uniforms, helmet stickers shouldn’t offend the “down in front” crowd much.

  3. It’s not about offending the “down in front” crowd, I just don’t see a need to clutter up the most iconic helmet in football.

  4. Forget decals…I’m hoping Harbaugh does away with the Legends jerseys. Worst. Idea. EVER.

  5. Speaking of returning to old things…will JH put them back in traditional black shoes? I’d love to see a return to the uniform from ’97-2000. I don’t really care about Nike or Adidas, but the traditional Michigan uni should remain intact.
