Do we combine the maize jersey with blue pants? Maize jersey with maize pants is flirting with garish Oregon territory.
Maize Jersey With a Twist
And West Virginia yellow-on-yellow.
I vote No.
We need to go with white pants. And tails like a real wolverine.
So then we'd be all maize? Ick.
have to go with blue pants
Only crazy uniform change id ever be in favor of is the away white on white .. sorry guys
i guess that would look ok if they had blue pants. but hopefully they wouldn't look like these:
that looks way to gold.
I think that we will see maize jerseys when we play a home night game...not for a while. When we do eventually wear maize tops (if ever) I hope there will be blue pants. I feel like the yellow on yellow Oregon jerseys are the worst ever and I hope we avoid that travesty
Yellow on yellow has failed sevral times. Minnesota, Oregon, and WV showed it just doesn't work. Maybe if there was alot of blue on the pants, we could pull of maize jerseys the way Cal pulls off yellow jersey with blue pants. Don't know if I ever wanna see anything other then the blue home jerseys though, maize on the road maybe.
be willing to give it a try. I'd just like to see the uniform be set up to see what it would look like. Either all maize or maize with blue pants. Somebody do that...now.
Only because you asked:

#1 okay, not bad...i can dig it.

#4 OH DEAR GOD MY EYES
the yellow jerseys are just Mike Hart's head glued onto a Cal player's head. Just thought is was a little funny.
I would say all are legit options other than the all yellow. Now, I see that you used cal stuff, so I would assume our yellow would be a little different, but i don't like it. All whites actually look sweet, and white and blues look sweet. If we are doing alternates like this, though, I would like to see a little different design from Adidas. If we are going to actually do alternates, which I kind of doubt any time soon, there should be something fresh about them.
I actually kind of like the all white. I couldn't really tell what the white on blue would look like because the picture was pretty poor quality. I didn't really like the yellow ones, but that's partly because it was just Cal's jerseys with Hart's head pasted on. I still don't see the maize jerseys happening.
no. that is all.
on a home player in Michigan Stadium. Ever.
and I don't think anybody is going to disagree with you. I think most of the people would like to see maize used as an alternate, if used at all. It would be for away games.
You are beating a jar of glue at this point, gentlemen...
Why do you want this? Why do you even want to entertain the abstract concept of it? This isn't a matter of blue hairs or RAWK music or anything. The Michigan football uniform has two forms: home and away. That's it.
I say NICKELBACK....
somebody please explain these "blue hairs" i so frequently read about...?
Back in the early days of hair dye, women who died their hair black tended to have it come out blue. So old ladies dying their hair were known as "blue hairs".
No F---ing maize jerseys. Ever.
The only alternate jersey I could get behind would be one made out of real Wolverine fur.
the team proves they have earned it by being thrust into the Canadian or Swedish wilderness coated in moose blood, capturing one wolverine each with their bare hands, and wearing the pelts back to camp a la the panda from Tropic Thunder while singing the O Fortuna movement of the Carmina Burana.
This would all be taped and used as the pump-up video for every night game of course.
i never really thought they mattered much...esp. not enough to devote your sig to them.
Perhaps Bursley was just a little too north. North...like Minne$ota.
Have they gotten to you; stared into your soul with their beady black eyes and brainwashed you? Have you forgotten the bloodlust of the rivalry? Have you forgotten The Jug?
Remember, and then never forget. And never forgive.
We'll ever see maize jerseys (hopefully) is as an away alt. Jersey, which I'm sure not too many M fan have a major problem with as long as they are worn with a contrasting color. The only way we'll ever see maize jerseys in The Big House (hopefully) is during the spring game.
Personally, I'd love to see an alternate jersey but only be used for road games like once or twice a year. I love the home unis too much to not see them for EVERY home game.
The all maize and the maize with blue pants both looked too strange. The all white looked pretty good, as long as we were playing on Field Turf so the pants wouldn't become Spartan green after 1 quarter. The all white brings back memories of the early Bo years.
Please. Make it stop.
Maize jersey with blue pants would be too Cal-esque. Not to mention that whole thing about the entire maize jersey idea being the cognitive equivalent of a retarded version of Helen Keller.
I don't know what the big deal is. Our alternates would look like Cal's jerseys and truthfully im a big fan of the maize alternates. It's not a tradition breaker, we will still be wearing the traditional blue tops and maize pants for home games.
Once M gets back to the elite level we all know they can achieve, then they should pull out the alternates for big non-conference away games. Of course all of M nation won't agree, mostly because we have been tradition, tradition, tradition ever since the school began and they don't want to see that broken. (kinda like OCD people who have to perform rituals everyday.)
personally I like having one team wear their color and the other wear white no matter who's playing. Aesthetically, I would hate to watch a game where we're wearing maize jerseys and other team is wearing red or orange or something...
the only solution to this is wear maize at home games and that should never ever never happen never.
We have one of the best uniforms in college football, instantly recognizable and with a lot of tradition to it. Why do people feel the need to mess with that? We're not Oregon
We need black on black with highlighter yellow numbers that glow under the black lights that will be installed for night games.
I miss the AFL already...
Just say no to the maize jersey.
BLACKOUT UNIFORMS WITH NIGHT GAMES AND RAWK MUSIK!!!!!!!!!! NAO!!!!!!!
Whiteout away uniforms actually sound cool, but that's it.
I can't believe this even gets serious discussion. I suppose the maize jersey lovers here are OK with the stupid Arkansas curly stripes on Michigan's current away jersey? Michigan prides itself on being the best - that has always meant best uniform in my book too. Why copy another team and go with maize (yellow, gold, whatever) jerseys? Even worse, blue pants?? What's next - change the iconic helmet to something more like WVU or Cal? Michigan's helmet is what really makes the uniform. The rest should be simple, as the current home uniforms are, and the away uniforms used to be before devil nike put the damn colored piping on, and adidas just added to that with the maize stripes (as I alluded to earlier, this is an adidas PATTERN that Arkansas also uses) Jeesh - Michigan's got original, unique, cool uniforms. Leave them the hell alone! In fact, simplify the away uni's by deleting the maize piping and curly stripes. And . . . I wouldn't mind one bit toning down the highlighter yellow to something like it used to be in the 70's or 80's. And one more thing - I wish the helmet stripes would stop migrating down towards the earholes. This has been discussed on this blog before. That's all.
I think a lot of this is the University's fault. When I went to UM, the student section wore whatever it wanted.
It wasn't til my senior year (04) that the Daily and athletic dept began to do Maize Outs and you began seeing maize jersey's being sold in all the stores and being used as a primary color.
I've never understood why Maize is the color of choice when our cheer is Go Blue. That being said I love the maize basketball uniforms.
Because wearing blue shirts (which we tried in 2005) isn't as visually striking. A sea of blue can look suspiciously like a bunch of empty seats. Most schools go with the brighter of their colors for these things.
Now I found out about this post. It's like my body knew before my brain did.
looks cool when the whole student section is wearing it, and during Maize-Outs and stuff like that, especially on TV. But definitely not on the players. The players should stay in BLUE, PERIOD. The crowd doing Maize-Outs is OK because, well, we are maize and blue, not just blue, so someone has to wear the maize at some point.
But leave it to the crowd.
Look, the helmets have wings!
I think the whole team should pull this next time we're trailing going into the 4th Quarter:
Probably should add a smoke machine while we're at it, maybe some Metallica.
Gotta give it up for the all white jerseys. Just make sure they leave the home jerseys alone.

Why would you want to change something like the University of Michigan football uniform? It is one of the most recognizable uniforms in sports. It is perfect just the way it is (home and away). I think that is part of the allure of the PSU uniform. It doesn't change. Michigan football is very unique, in that it doesn't need gimmicks to bring an audience. IMHO, no uniform change is needed.
I think the blue pants with the white away jersey looks sweet. The maize M on the pants would pop nicely.
I regret to inform you that this is not the case. My high school team had copycat Michigan football uniforms and they pulled the white jersey/blue pants for a playoff game once and it just looked awful. Also, they lost. They did do all blue a couple of times and that wasn't so bad, but also not so great that I would ever want Michigan to try it themselves.
Also, here's an example of what white on white could sort-of look like (puny high school player, I know):
I say we get a Maize jersey but use it for Maize Outs at home! Maize with Maize. Away just the same but maybe we could re-equip the white pants
I like it on the b-ball team, but I just can't see it on the football team.
Blue pants to go with the white away jersey, otoh, would look sharp.
I have a photo of the 1964 football jersey that was maize tops and bottoms, but have been unable to substantiate it anywhere. Has anyone else seen this?
Maize jerseys with white pants, EH?
don't neg me.
i would see white/white maize/maize blue/blue ect. ect. at home... would be if we were doing a maize out or blue out or white out or something.... that would be something eh??
i'd like to stay traditional and not change much... i love the jerseys and i wouldnt want to change them but a alternative jersey for non conference match (AWAY) would be nice... expecially a white/white or maize/blue (just the home jersey flipped) white/blue or even blue/blue would look nice... maize on maize just no haha
