Jim Harbaugh Looks Like Woody Hayes Today And It's Hilarious

Jim Harbaugh spruced up his usually bland look with some awesome new spectacles for the game against Illinois.

Khakis aficionado and milk connoisseur Jim Harbaugh added another layer of mystique to his persona by wearing some really funky glasses today for Michigan's game against Illinois.

Just look at them:

According to the Big Ten Network crew, Harbaugh is rocking a similar style of glasses to the ones Woody Hayes wore. For those unfamiliar, Woody Hayes was an Ohio State football coach who won five national championships and 13 Big Ten conference championships from 1951 to 1978. The look is pretty spot on!

It's a curious decision by the Michigan coach to imitate anything Ohio State-related, but whatever Harbaugh has done this year seems to be working. The Wolverines are currently beating Illinois 31-0 and are on their way to being 7-0.

If the score holds (I'd probably bet on Michigan scoring some more), the Wolverines will have beaten their last two opponents 109-0.
