A little history on the the subtle (and a few not-so-subtle) tweaks to the Michigan uniform in the past four decades via historian and Wolverine uniform expert Steve Sapardanis. This was basically off the top of his head (!) - so feel free to review and comment:

1969 - Bo removes the numbers from the SIDES of the helmets and adds award stickers (solid yellow football-shaped decals)

1974-1975 - White pants for road games. Road unis changed to all white with thin blue and yellow stripes on the end of the jersey sleeves, and matched in same stripes down the outsides of the pants. (Check out all whites in action in the `76 Orange Bowl).

1975 - UM changes the facemask color from gray to blue. Decals get a little facelift - a snarling Wolverine head with laces is added
