Photos of Harmon & Gardner Go Viral
September 11th, 2013| by Lost Lettermen
It was really cool to see Michigan QB Devin Gardner honor the great Tom Harmon against Notre Dame last Saturday by wearing the Wolverine legend’s No. 98. It was even cooler that Gardner had a game that would have made Harmon proud, accounting for 376 total yards and five TDs in his team’s 41–30 win.
Now there’s this: A Redditor who pointed out the eerie similarities between a photo of Harmon during the final game of his Heisman Trophy-winning season in 1940 — during which he also accounted for five total touchdowns in a 40–0 beatdown of archrival Ohio State — and a photo of Gardner from Saturday night.
If you’re a Wolverines fan, there’s no way you stare at the photos below without getting chills.
