Football Card Friday! 1997 Upper Deck Pigskin Heroes- Jim Harbaugh

Tomorrow night in Indianapolis, Indiana, the #2 ranked Michigan Wolverines will play the Iowa Hawkeyes, ranked #15, for the 2021 Big Ten Championship in football. 

Michigan Head Football Jim Harbaugh, the 1986 Big Ten Silver Football Award Winner, returns to Indianapolis were he played QB for the NFL Colts, from 1994-97.

This card is pretty much emblematic of "Captain Comeback," as Harbaugh was known in Indy.

I can't even begin to imagine how nervous I'll be tomorrow night, as my beloved Wolverines try to win their first Big Ten Title game, and the teams first conference championship since 2004.

Harbaugh will always be one of my favorite Michigan players, especially now that he's cone back to Ann Arbor to coach the team.!

I started watching Michigan play football in 1976, and nobody in college football was tougher than Harbaugh was as Bo Schembechler's starting QB in 1985 & 1986.

Here's hoping that the Wolverines can score against a very tough Iowa defense, one of the nation's best. 

Have a great weekend...oh, yeah, Go Blue!
