In a time when some Michigan fans have frustrations with an undefeated and young team, there’s a powerful message going around the Michigan football program that’s beginning to sweep the Maize and Blue nation. It’s such a positive and meaningful message that Coach Harbaugh recently purchased the shirts for the entire staff. He’s ingrained several other favorite quotes as part of a culture shift and quick turnaround of the program.
Freshman running back Kurt Taylor was raised under the mentality that "hard work is undefeated." That started back in the days of his father, Kurt Taylor Sr., playing basketball at the University of Hawaii. It stuck with him after his playing days and he’s spreading that quote around because of what it’s done for his family.
Kurt Taylor promoted this message through his recruiting process with Michigan and some may have recently seen his father around The Big House the last two weekends.
While the merchandise has only been available on their website and sold during game days, Kurt proudly announced the news that his father signed a deal with the M Den.

I caught up with Kurt Taylor Sr. about this opportunity and what it means.
"It's huge for my family,” Taylor Sr. said. “Once again, hard work is undefeated and it cannot be denied. I want to thank God for all of his blessings. I want to thank Coach Harbaugh for purchasing the shirts for the entire coaching staff. My dreams and vision are coming true. I live my life by these rules and have been saying this for 30 years while playing basketball and mentoring kids."
More than just shirts will be sold at the M Den, so make sure to check out the entire line of merchandise available.
