Call me crazy, Michigan alums, but it could be time to rewrite one of the most famous fight songs in sports.

Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Brunettes!”

“Every time we were struggling in kicking, Coach tells me to think about girls on a beach or brunette girls,” Gibbons said. “So that’s what we did. Made the kick.”
