49ers jumbotron shows Jim Harbaugh/Michigan sign

New, comments

It's safe to say Michigan football fans are doing whatever they can to make their case to San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

This past week, we have heard a ton of rumors connecting San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh with the University of Michigan. It remains to be seen if he will return to his alma mater as head coach, but Michigan fans are pushing for it. In a rather amusing display, a pro-Michigan sign showed up on the Levi's Stadium jumbotron. Here is the sign:

It is not surprising a fan would bring this kind of sign to the game, but it is surprising the 49ers would screw up and show it on the jumbotron. I have a hunch someone posted it and that was quickly followed by some kind of expletive from the control room. It's harmless, but that is definitely the kind of thing that will piss off someone's boss.

The 49ers have one more home game next week against the Arizona Cardinals. I doubt we see a sign like this show up on the jumbotron, but I have to think there will be a lot of pro-Harbaugh signs in the crowd. Week 17 could mark the final game of the Jim Harbaugh era, and I think fans will make their voices known at the game.
