It seems to me that the rationale behind these novelty uniforms is that they appeal to players and make the program more attractive to recruits. I have my doubts about that but I'm not in a position to know.
Seems to me though that there's one way to know for sure: put it to a vote of the players. So we do a secret ballot. If they like the unis, the rest of us can put up with them. If the players don't like them, we send them back.
Let the players decide -- whaddya say Brandon?
Looks like the first movie night selection is out. Good one for the family. Interesting to see the turn out.
The Michigan drill...
It's not letting me embed the BTN video? Edit: longer video including player interviews. Players also helped design the unis http://mgovideo.com/players-react-to-go-blue-uniforms/
Yesterday, there was a tweet quoting Hoke that the starting OL will have Cole as LT and that Kalis was out. Today, there is further clarification by Baumgardner and it appears that Hoke is trying to have 8 people ready to step in. This makes sense as there will be injuries. Also, he wants to give several people a shot at the starting positions and create competition.
And, per Hoke, the starting unit during the morning half of a two-a-day practice could completely change by nighttime.Michigan wants to have a solid front five determined somewhere toward the middle of fall camp, but in the meantime, the shuffling is apparently going to continue."Balancing that can be tricky, but it can also be massaged pretty well," Hoke added. "I think Darrell's done a nice job with it, and Nuss. And who we put in with that first group? Maybe that changes daily."I'm sure it will change from a morning practice to an afternoon until we really feel 'this is it' with these guys. The competition has been really good for us there."
