According to EJ Holland of TheWolverine.com, the color red has been banned from the Michigan facility. The ban is reportedly all-encompassing and even includes red Gatorade.
Recruits on recent official visits made note of the ban, which Holland wrote about on Friday.
"There is no red allowed in the facilities… You can't even drink red Gatorade."

This might sound silly, but keep in mind that Ohio State has essentially banned blue in its facility dating back to the Urban Meyer era. It sounds like Jim Harbaugh is just borrowing a page from his book.
In addition to forbidding anything red, Michigan recently installed a sign in its weight room asking players “What are you doing to beat Ohio State today?” It’s clear that the Wolverines are take down the Buckeyes after losing the last eight and 17 of the last 19 meetings between the two rivals.
They’ll get a shot to break the streak on November 27 in Ann Arbor.
