Wolverines Scrap New Helmet Design


Now that Jim Herrmann has departed as Michigan's defensive coordinator, school officials have decided to keep Michigan's famed winged design on its football helmets.

After blowing numerous 4th quarter leads over the last few years, the school had been contemplating changing the Wolverine helmets to the "daisy design" shown here to better reflect Michigan's "more gentle and sensitive" defense. But with Herrmann gone, they have opted to stay the course and stick with tradtion, hoping for a return to Michigan defenses of old.

In a related story, the athletic department has also put on hold plans to replace the Nike "swoosh" symbol on the team's jerseys. Sources tell the M Zone that the school was unable to decide on a symbol which would accurately reflect throwing 6 yard sideline patterns on 3rd and 10.

The real sad thing is that it's true, like on 4th down & 15 against Notre Dame in the 4th quarter. So, since we need 15 yards, we decide to throw a 6 yard out to the TE. That's great play-calling.

A pansy would be better than a daisy, at least they can be maize and blue too.

BTW - nice blog...you make me laugh.
