Jim Harbaugh wants Michigan to build a Tom Brady statue
Jim Harbaugh likes to keep the links to Michigan football’s past alive, and he also loves Tom Brady, so it’s no surprise that a new proposal of his reflects both of these things.
The Michigan coach said on his “Attack Each Day” podcast that he believes a statue of Brady should be erected somewhere on Michigan’s campus after collecting his sixth Super Bowl last week.
“I think it’s time, don’t you, for a Tom Brady statue to built right here,” Harbaugh said, via Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports. “Right in front of Schembechler Hall, or do you put it in the stadium? Where would you put the Tom Brady statue? … The tunnel? Maybe the tunnel? Where do you put it? Maybe some of the listeners can tell us.”
Let’s just say that, in light of Harbaugh’s previous assessments of Brady, this take cannot come as a huge surprise. That said, he may have a point here. If you boil it down to collegiate accomplishments, Brady won’t be remembered as Michigan’s best-ever quarterback, but when you take his entire career into account you can understand why the Wolverines would want a constant reminder that he did, in fact, go to school and play there.
