Michigan was off last Saturday after posting a 78-0 annihilation of Rutgers on Oct. 8. It appears at some point during the layoff, coach Jim Harbaugh decided to work some fresh eyeglasses into the rotation.
This is what they look like.
The Wolverines currently enjoy a 31-0 halftime lead over Illinois so Harbaugh’s frames haven’t affected the on-field product. They have, however, caused more than a few people to notice the resemblance to Ohio State coaching legend Woody Hayes’ eyewear.
There’s no way this is an intentional homage to a man who hated the state of Michigan with every fiber of his being.
