The University of Michigan football program prides themselves on maintaining the tradition that they have had since the beginning of time.  The winged helmet which was borrowed from Princeton (where former Wolverine head coach Fritz Crisler once coached) and Michigan State.  Crisler brought the wings to Ann Arbor after he left the Ivy League. Traditions and lack of change has gone by the wayside in recent years as Michigan has gone with uniform seven changes (give or take one or two) in the last two years.  For their Outback Bowl meeting against South Carolina on January 1, they’ll be sporting some new digs and a new helmet. They have chosen a matte finish on the helmets and a CFL-looking jersey complete with yellow numbers, blue shoulders, blue font for the names.  I don’t necessarily hate the matte helmets, but the jersey looks like something a six-year old would draw up.   Photos via @umichfootball
