The winged helmet wins out. After weeks of voting, BTN.com readers selected Michigan’s iconic lid as the champion of the 2013 Big Ten Helmet Bracket. The Wolverines obliterated tourney darling and Leaders Division champ Indiana, 78%-22%, to record their second BTN.com aesthetic competition in as many summers. Last year, Michigan took our uniform bracket.

Got to hand it to Michigan fans. The Wolverines trailed Iowa by a wide margin in the Legends Division finals before MGoBlog.com posted a link to the poll in the 11th hour. Michigan fans went to work, and then some.

Chances are, they did the same throughout the tourney with matchups featuring their fiercest competitors. That’s the only logical explanation for Indiana topping both Ohio State and Penn State.

Can’t say Michigan fans aren’t loyal or dedicated.

I cant say how much I am pleased and gratified by the results of this vote. This proves without a doubt how much the Michigan program is respected and admired in Big Ten Country.

Hey Mark, why are you and Dhani obsessed with Me and MSU football?

Because you never acknowledged that Michigan is a Superior Football Program with a longer and richer history of success. That really bothers me that you will not give Michigan its proper dues for being the number one team in the State.
