Fans Respond To Michigan’s Colin Kaepernick’s Decision

Jim Harbaugh and Colin  Kaepernick are having a reunion of sorts eight years after they last worked together as head coach and starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers.

The Michigan Wolverines‘ Maize and Blue Spring Game will be held on Saturday, April 2. On Wednesday, Michigan announced that Colin Kaepernick will serve as an honorary captain.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the previous six years, it’s that there are very few unbiased viewpoints on Kaepernick. This news was no exception.

On Twitter, several college football fans are certain that the Wolverines should not commemorate the former 49ers quarterback.

In general, though, the reaction to the news was positive. Non-Michigan fans also voiced their support for the decision.

From 2011 through 2014, Kaepernick and Harbaugh were teammates with the 49ers. After a sparse rookie season, Kaepernick was named the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers midway through the 2012 season. The year ended with a loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.

Harbaugh was fired by the 49ers after the 2014 season. Throughout the 2016 season, Kaepernick remained in San Francisco. During the 2016 season, he became increasingly political, as evidenced by his decision to sit, then kneel, during the national anthem. While the 49ers finished the season with a 2-14 record, including a 1-10 mark in his starts, Kaepernick threw 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Regardless, he hasn’t appeared since that season.

However, Kaepernick has remained in the limelight, with a recent session with Tyler Lockett attracting a lot of attention.
