Michigan to honor Bo & Pres. Ford with helmet sticker for Rose Bowl game
Michigan will adorn their helmets with a "48/BO" sticker during the Rose Bowl game in honor of President Gerald R. Ford and Coach Bo Schembechler both of whom passed away in the past couple of months. The number "48" is being used to represent President Ford because that was his jersey number during his playing days (1932-1934) at Michigan. President's Ford's number is one of of only five in Michigan football history to be retired. Go Blue!
