I would like to get an idea of who supports bringing back the helmet stickers that were reminiscent of the Bo era which seemed to end when Lloyd took office.
I'm a not-so-old blue as I'm almost 29 years old. Therefore, I've seen both the "cluttered" and "clean" look through my years of following college football's winningest program. Personally, I'm slightly torn on the debate. Part of me says adding anything to that helmet is nothing short of sacreligious. The other part of me remembers how sweeet it looked when an all american like Desmond Howard had his winged dome piece loaded up. A co-worker and fellow Michigan football fan, who is about 15 years older than myself, brought it up when he saw a background I had on my phone. He heavily favors the old stickers and of course I couldn't pick a side. He was wondering if it would ever come back. Actually, I'm now under the impression that he is willing to do whatever it takes to bring them back. I can't remember exactly what coach Carr's reasoning was for removing them. I do like the fact that without them, you are playing more for your team and less for the stickers that represent your individual statistical accomplishments. Which surprises me that Bo ever allowed them. However, I also thought it was cool when you started seeing them add up almost to the point where an opposing running back could see head on where the new sticker would find its place just before getting absolutely tattoed, ala Jarrett Irons. Anyway, just thought it would be cool to see what you guys' opinions on the topic would be.
PS, Thanks Brian for lifting the minimum points requirement for posts. I'm not at all a blogger or someone who spends much time on a computer on my own time. Sitting in front of one all day for work can do that to ya. It's unlikely I would have ever reached the 20 points. I really appreciate this site as it is the best I've found to enable my sometimes unhealthy addiction of all things Michigan. Your donation's in the mail.
