Just so you know, they won't be able to make a customized jersey with the name and number of any current or former player. So, you could get a #6 jersey and the name on it could be anything but Warren (or whoever else has worn 6 for Michigan in the past), but that said 6 and 73 would be hot picks right now
OT - Adidas custom Michigan football jersey
It says in the customization rules "League player names must match current team rosters and the team for which they currently play." Is there some exception for college football? If so, there's a kid I know who has a 22 jersey with "Stonum" on the back, any idea where he could've gotten that?
You can always buy the jersey with the number you want and take it to an independent sports store that can screen print the name you want. A lot of times those places are too dumb to notice or don't care because they want the money. So for example buy the #6 jersey online and take it to your local sports store and ask if they do screen printing and then get the name you want. Usually works...I had that done with an old #1 jersey.
Eastbay is another source, typically cheaper and always running promotions.
Though you cannot use old or current player names, you can always use nicknames. BOO BOO #33, perhaps?
you could but something like Boo Boo #33 sounds like a jersey that you'd buy at wal-mart and not a moe's or mden.
I got a customized Edwards #1 jersey. They don't regulate the names like you think they would. All that being said, the cut of the jersey kinda sucked...disproportionate sleeves, etc.
I always suffered when getting jerseys while I was younger that the player I chose would inevitably suck/get arrested/get traded once they left UM. I think your only logical choice is a Zoltan jersey. #41, nameplate "Emperor". That one will last a lifetime just like a John Kolesar jersey.
