While tailgating, I watched as people trundled up Main Street and saw a small # of folks in those MSU game monstrosities, along with the UTL ones (which, while not great, were decidely better than MSU) and thought, "Wow - how do we continue to screw up such a great uniform? Wha' happen?"
Granted, some of the time said uniform is being worn by a fat person on whom only a Homer-esque mumu would be appropriate, but still.
The Alabama game jerseys (of which I haven't seen outside of on TV) do really show Michigan's new "highlighter" yellow approach. I'm guessing they, too, look worse on the average fan. On TV, it looked like someone was trying to emphasize how important the shoulder pad area was while preparing for their Kinesiology exam.
