I did not make this headline up
Michigan has added a block "M" above the player names, and has also scrapped the extraneous piping on the road jersey (although the Wolverines don't play on the road until Oct. 8 -- their sixth game! -- so it'll be a while before you see the new road design).
Saw the Block M on the back of the home jerseys last week, and from this photo:
It appears the yellow piping is gone. Yes that's in practice, and yes Cam is wearing White Pants that are NOT supposed to make it to game day, but his jersey is fancier than some of the other practice jerseys we saw. It has his name, and yellow outlining around the name and numbers, as well as a matching Block M above his name.
I don't mind the changes. Never loved the yellow piping, but didn't hate it either. Your thoughts?
This is from Maize-n-brew but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere on here amidst all the panic...rule 1-4-4-f states that legal uniforms must have "Clearly visible, permanent Arabic numerals on one jersey at least 8 and 10 inches in height front and back, respectively, of a color in distinct contrast with the jersey."
Since those...unusual...prototypes do not have a number nor room for an 8" number on the front, they cannot be the ones we will wear in the game, can they?
It's clothes, people. Friggin... AHG! Nike makes clothes. Adidas makes clothes. I have never had an article of clothing from either of these companies fail to meet the requirements to which I held it, which were, "Cover my ugly body up." The jerseys are Maize and Blue in either case. The designs are acceptable in either case. The corporate logos are secondary in size and location to the rest of the design in either case. Wearing one or the other brand is not going to cause our teams to perform any better, nor make your fat ass any more attractive when you wear the year's latest sideline polo.
To sum up: Nobody cares what you think about clothing manufacturers, and I'm tired of having it interjected into the middle of half the threads I open.
Newish Adidas commercial featuring Justice's new song Civilization, it's tight but it could have been awesome.
Flip to 1:30 into the video and shortly you'll see a quick clip of what looks like Rudolph scoring on Michigan, but I'm pretty sure this play got called down at the 1.
I hate that Adidas implies that ND scored on this play and I hate that they feature ND and their ugly stadium. Come on, show the big house on a Maize Out or something spectacular, after all we still sell more merchandise than they do (ref).
My big question is why didn't they show the longest run in Notre Dame stadium history and the obvious highlight of the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_xePqfTAi8
Denard gets even faster.
Since it seems no one has posted this, here are some pics of the new Michigan basketball uniforms.
And full shot
I like them, but then again, there is maize piping on the shorts and I know how some people here feel about that. Also, on the back of the jersey, there is a blue inset at the neck with a block M
