$180 rebates: How Michiganians would get them, what could stop them

UM does have a mascot (sort of), and it's Harbaugh

Where's Harbaugh? He's right behind Purdue Pete.

The Michigan Wolverines don’t have a mascot.

Or do they?

To promote its coverage of the NCAA Tournament, CBS Sports created an illustration featuring the mascot from every school in the Big Dance.

Representing Michigan? Jim Harbaugh, complete with No. 1 big foam hand.

During his tenure as Michigan athletic director, Dave Brandon floated the idea of introducing a mascot. “You can’t get your picture taken with a Block M,” Brandon reasoned.

But Maize and Blue traditionalists fought back, and the idea was shelved.
