Although I get that numbers are getting in short supply in modern day large rosters, but the numbers were retired and should stay that way. I feel a little better about it that the families of the players involved are OK with it. Michigan can still decide not to retire any more numbers in the future and be fine with having enough of them for the roster. But, I really feel strongly that Tom Harmon's number should never be used again. Among the U-M legends, he's a legend.
