MGoBloggers -- Just FYSA, I received an update from Amazon referencing Jon Falk's new book, "Forty Years.."
The new expected delivery date is now Wednesday, 29 July!
This should help subside the offseason blues, albeit briefly. I'm really looking forward to his first-hand stories and will probably fly through this by Friday the 31st. Jon Falk is a living legend.
I've been sitting on this for awhile now, so I figure I'd post an equipment update since spring practice has started.
In 2015, Michigan will sport the new adidas CrazyQuick 5.0 cleats. One of the version they will wear are the Mantraflagfe cleats. They'll look something like this but will obviously have 6 words relevant to Michigan like "Victors, Valiant" on them and will be in Maize and Blue.
Mid-cut version for linemen
Here is what Miami's will look like. These were released when Miami announced that they were signing with adidas.
Other 2015 equipment updates
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah. It's back. Equipment updates.
I feel like I'm being blasted by a fire hydrant of equipment news for 2015. Very exciting.

Assuming Michigan wears white socks on the road again, expect a white pair with Blue waves.
These are pretty similar to last year's Shockwave socks that Michigan wore. The "waves" are just on the front now. Last year's-
Herb Frederick has attended to Michigan's football equipment for 70 years, and his duties have exposed him to that unique and long-lived combination of Ohio State football fans and urine:
“You don’t want to go to Columbus,” Herb said. “They had students living in Ohio Stadium, and they would pour water, sometimes urine, down on us when we backed the truck to unload it.”
