MSU players will wear a “Silver Lining” decal on the back of their helmets this season. The decal is actually a silver outline of the state of Michigan.
Former Iowa coach Hayden Fry did something similar in the 1980s when Hawkeyes players wore an America Needs Farmers (ANF) sticker on their helmets during a rough time for agriculture in the country. Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio and athletic director Mark Hollis came up with the idea for the silver decal.
Say yes to Michigan, anyone?
