Michigan Library Reveals Football Questionnaire Answers On Twitter

Michigan football used to send out player questionnaires to prospective players, and the Michigan library tweeted out some interesting excerpts, including Coach Harbaugh's.

After the Ohio State University Archives asked The Bentley Historical Library at Michigan about its best football artifact on Twitter Wednesday, the library tweeted out some interesting snapshots of Michigan football player questionnaires.

The tweets included a full questionnaire from two-time Heisman Trophy winner Tom Harmon, who played halfback for the Wolverines from 1938-1940, and excerpts from Jim Harbaugh's questionnaire, who played for the Wolverines from 1983-1986 and now serves as the current head coach.

Check them out below:

Interesting to note that Harmon was a smoker, and he said it "makes no difference" what position he were to play on offense. His can-do attitude ended up working out for him; he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1954. Harbaugh's answers are pretty amusing as well:

I can just imagine Harbaugh sitting in his dorm as a freshman head-banging to some AC/DC. Also, is anyone else not surprised that former IU coach Bobby Knight was listed as one of Harbaugh's favorite sports personalities? Now we know where he gets the intensity from.

This is the most important bit though:

All of those answers still definitely apply, even 30 years later.
