Bo M vs Block M: which hat do you prefer/wear?

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on August 18th, 2016 at 12:23 PM

The Block M has always been my style, but I bought myself a Bo M hat at MDen and I really like it. Now I'm torn on which style I will wear for games.

I've always been curious to see where others stand on this.

I do notice that once the Bo M hat disappeared from the sidelines in 2004, we started going on a slide after that season.

I bought the original Bo hat in 2011, back when it was pretty obscure and a "thin M" apparel search yielded no results. I think it is the same as the middle one, although there is no maize New Era logo on the side - what distinguishes it now is that it has another thin Block M on the back where Adidas logo was as of last year, and of course where the Jumpman is now. It's hands down my favorite in a modestly sizable collection.

The New Era Bo M hat has been my only style hat since the 1997 Iowa Game.  Its a classic.  I'm probably on #6 or #7 by this point.  I still have the first one that made the trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl/NC in 1998.

I used to get a lot of comments about it until HARBAUGH arrived.  Not many people wore the Bo Hat during the end of the Nike years and during the Adidas years.  Now its the standard style again.

Got a block M  adidas for Christmas last year and still haven't worn it publicly. It now adorns my Michigan room atop a lamp. I kind of like that adornment. And never turn the lamp on. I still wear my Bo hat which precedes our last Championship season, which I am thinking will be renewed this year because it's our time again.
