CCish: Helmet Stickers

Submitted by michWolves2580 on January 3rd, 2011 at 10:46 PM

I know there was a thread a couple months back about helmet stickers and how Carr dumped them, but now that there is a non zero chance that JH will consider coming to us (barring a CC), it looks like he will bring his helmet stickers policy that he uses at stanford. I personally am not a huge fan and think the helmets look clean without them but also realize they were a michigan tradition in the past and am not open to the re-instating. How do the Michigan Men on this site feel about a possible return.

Helmet stickers bring back good memories of Tshimanga and Desmond Howard.  I made a whole bunch of them when I was 6 or 7 to stick on my Denver Broncos Riddell helmet. 

If too many oppose them, I propose we put another Adidas logo for each good play somewhere randomly on the jersey.

I don't object to any technique that works and I'm sure most will agree. But am I the only one who finds it amusing that these young men get rewarded with STICKERS?!?

I had a 4th grade teacher who gave us stickers for good behavior and if we got enough we could trade them in for a pretzel stick. I'm not sure what this says about college sports.

I'm fine with it. It's not like we've never had them before, and it'll be a good change of pace. First step, though, is to see if in a week we have a coach that even wants helmet stickers....

I'm not in love with them, but if Harbaugh wants them, Mr. Brandon, put it in the contract.  Memo to Harbaugh: NFL teams don't do this.

I always thought they looked great, especially when we played OSU at the end of the season, and both sides had their helmets full of stickers. It's also great for guys who normally don't get a lot of recognition.

I wouldn't mind seeing them come back, but with a more modern design. Make the stickers much smaller and I think they'd look much better.
