Football: Uni changes
A couple of readers pointed out that the new away jerseys being sold on the M-Den look like this:
Instead of this:
Obviously the color on the first one is due to some weird lighting instead of a complete break with Michigan history. (Either that, or I have to raise a robot army to kill whoever's responsible.) I heard about the stitching change for the front numbers a while ago but didn't think they would change the collar, number position, and sleeves. Taken all together it's a pretty noticeable difference. I don't know what I think of it yet... I thought the new hockey jerseys they introduced a few years ago were going to look ridiculous but ended up liking them a lot. So judgment will be reserved.
Wow, that was a lot of free advertising for the M-Den. You can't buy this sort of publicity, mostly because I'm not selling it.
(Thanks to readers Douglas Dillon and Brent Accurso for the heads up.)
Update: Jesus Christ, there's a yellow stripe on those things. Look up at the shoulder... I completely missed it before. New opinion: goddammit.
